Google adds a dark boot screen to some Pixel models
« on: July 12, 2019, 04:45:51 AM »

Ever boot up your Pixel in a dark room or late at night? The fact that the Pixel line doesn't sport the brightest displays won't stop your eyes from feeling as though your retinas are melting. As a result, Android Q beta 5 features a dark boot screen. According to 9to5 Google, this shows up by default on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL after either model is booted up the first time following the installation of the latest beta build. This is the case regardless if the "system-wide" dark mode is enabled or not. The animation when booting up is the exact same as the one Pixel users are familiar with now, but with a dark black background.

So far the new dark boot screen is not showing up on older Pixel models running Android Q beta 5, but that could change once the final version of the latest Android build is released later this quarter. Google has been adding a dark mode to many of its apps because the Material Design it uses leaves larges spaces of blinding white background. Instead of black text on a white background, enabling dark mode features white text on a black background.
