Pocket is a must have for those who do not have a constant Internet connection, and yet would like to save stories, articles, videos and so much more to consume later. It supports lots of apps and services, so in other words, works with pretty much every app and website you can name.
Its newest beta update has been out since a couple of days and it packs a feature that may catch your fancy. The version number is 184.108.40.206 and it is available on Google Play with the following changelog to match.
Auto Dark Mode is here! Pocket’s light and dark themes will automatically switch based on the lighting around you. Enable it in Settings. This release also includes design improvements and minor bug fixes.
Okay, to get straight on topic, there is a new automatic theme switching option added into Pocket's settings. When you toggle it on, the app switches between the light and dark theme depending on the ambient lighting around you, not actually the brightness of your display as the description says. To test it out, just cover the portion above your device's display where the needed sensor is located and the dark theme will instantly get enabled. When you uncover it, it will switch to the light one instead.
Other than that one, this release also contains minor fixes here and there, so make sure to update ASAP. If you are not a tester, you can apply from the links below.
