Thus, the next version of Android will be named as Android P until the launch of its official name which will be announced at the stable release of Android P. As far as Android P is concerned, we have known that Google is going to revamp Android OS after the Material Design revamp was done a few years back. According to Google, this was a "miscommunication with the team".
Never Mind, Google isn't Giving Android P a Dark Mode
Google briefly made waves in the Android community today after a post in its forums said that a dark mode would be added to a future Android release. The team at Google informed that what they have actually added in a future Android release (not specifically Android P) is a quick toggle for the night UI qualifier through the Developer Options to create and test apps which implement Dark Mode like Twitter and JioMusic do.More news: President Donald Trump admits to trying to hide his bald spot

While that could still be in the works, we suppose, the Google engineer's comments did not mean to refer to a universal Android dark mode, as it turns out. This qualifier has been in the platform since Froyo (SDK 8) and globally modifiable via UiModeManager since Marshmallow (SDK 23); however, there was never an explicit toggle made available anywhere in Settings. The new toggle makes it easier to access in the Developer Options menu. However, Google still will meet users and will build a limited functionality Dark Mode, available only for developers that will allow them to integrate the dark theme in their apps easily.More news: New Zealand v England: 'Racehorse' Ben Stokes ready for long-awaited return
In an effort to offer a small bit of reassurance, the statement did promise, "we will also not be adding Hot Dog Mode (where all the UI elements are yellow and red)". The only solace is that you can somewhat implement this feature on your current Android smartphone using third party tools or custom ROMs.
