However, few apps still don’t have the dark mode. There’s Gmail, Play Store and more, but today, we have come across screenshots that show the Play Store in all its dark mode glory.

According to the report by XDA, the dark mode on the Play Store appeared on a Pixel 2 XL running Android 10 with Play Store version 16.6.25 through a server-side rollout to a limited number of devices. The report also clarifies that this was the official dark mode of the Play Store and not the dark version that gets enabled by the force dark toggle in developer options.

Take a look at the new dark mode for the Play Store below. As you can see, the theme looks quite pleasant and has some dark shades of grey to it to go well with the overall design language.
