Google Assistant’s New Dark Mode Cards Look Horrible

Posted on January 21, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Android, Google with 12 Comments

Google is rolling out new dark mode cards for Google Assistant on Android. The company is testing a new feature that allows users to display the Assistant cards with a dark mode, but it looks absolutely terrible.

As Android Police reports, the new dark mode is literally a combination of light and dark. The cards are dark, but the UI itself continues to be light. Both combined, you have a product that looks half finished and simply ugly.

It’s not clear if Google is rolling this feature out widely to everyone, or whether it will get pulled. The company is reportedly working on a system-wide dark mode for Android with the next major upgrade, and improvements to this current version of the dark mode Assistant could tie in nicely with that. For now, though, it’s just a mess.
