Google is currently optimizing some of its core apps in order to comply with Android Q's system-wide dark mode. The latest of these spotted with such an update is Keep, a handy source of memos. Its new theme, while not available to all users, may appeal with its ease on the eyes and new custom colors.

Android Police has posted a series of new images that allegedly come from a source with advance access to upcoming Google app updates. It shows apparent screenshots of Keep, but not quite as we know it. According to this leak, the note-taking facility will soon gain a toggle that allows the user to select a dark theme for the app.

Google has also reportedly done this for a few more of its own apps, including Calendar. This move may be connected to the imminent release of Android Q and its system-wide dark mode. The screenshots show that  Google Keep seems to function well under the new scheme. It may be a relief to some who find it useful, yet are tired of being blasted in the eyes by blinding white cards on its start-up.

On the other hand, Keep has custom colors for the backgrounds of notes. These follow on into this apparent new update, although they are considerably less bright than normal in order to meet the aims of the theme. The mode also carries into Google Keep's homescreen widget. Few users may have seen the update in question at present; however, Android Police asserts that it will be rolled out within the next 15 days.
