Google will soon let Pixel owners manually choose their Pixel launcher theme to dark or light.
When Google released the Pixel 2, it enabled an automatic dark theme in the Pixel Launcher and in quick settings. Currently, Google’s devices automatically set the dark or light theme based on the darkness of the wallpaper. So, if the wallpaper is very dark, you’ll get the dark theme with dark folder icons, dark quick settings, and a dark app drawer. If the wallpaper is more light, you’ll get the light theme.
Well, Android Police noticed someone added an item in the dev preview issue tracker asking for the ability to manually choose the theme, and a Google employee has recently marked the item as fixed. The Googler also provided the following response: We have added support for a Dark theme to be applied to quick settings and launcher… It will be available in a future Android build.”
