The Google Clock app for Android has an update rolling out to the Play Store that brings a new dark theme, icon and support for Android O. The update doesn’t bring any new features overall.
The new dark theme replaces the default blue/white theme that was in the app prior to this release. There is no way to return to the old theme if you liked it as theme changing is not an option in the app. Personally, I find this new theme a lot easier to read and easier on my eyes, especially in dark situations.
The other big news, of course, is support for Android O. Over the course of the past few weeks, there have been a lot of apps that have been updated to support the soon-to-be-released next version of Android. Google has updated a lot of their own apps already so having Google Clock updated makes sense. The app works on Android Nougat and other previous released too so this update isn’t just for those who are running the O beta.
If you haven’t checked out Google Clock, it is a powerful app. Not only does it give you the time and alarms, it can also serve as a stopwatch and timer too.
Google Clock is a free app and it is available in the Play Store.
