Dark mode has become a must-have feature on smartphones and apps these days due to the rise of devices with OLED screens. Android 10 is the first-ever version of the popular mobile operating system to come with system-wide dark mode. However, stock Android still misses granular controls such as per-app and scheduled dark mode settings, which are found on some heavy skinned UIs. But thankfully, you can now avail those features on any device running Android 10 using the DarQ app without root access.
DarQ app made its debut well before the official release of Android 10. It enables dark mode on apps that do not have it natively such as Snapchat, LinkedIn, and others. Additionally, it also comes with extra options such as a scheduler and per-app basis settings to enable dark mode. And the best part of the DarQ app is that it does not require root access. Hence, all you have to do is install the app, run an ADB script, and you are done.
Now, as we are done with what the DarQ app is capable of, have a look at our step by step guide on how to force dark mode per-app basis on Android 10 without root below.
