BlackBerry has been listening to its customers feedback. One such thing the majority of users wanted was ability to toggle a light or dark theme.
A dark theme was originally introduced on the BlackBerry Q10. This was due to the device using an OLED screen. Using a dark theme it would thereby reduce power consumption and conserve battery power.
However, it seems users with the Z10 and Q5, which use LCD screens still wanted the option to have a light or dark theme. BlackBerry has listened, as Michael Clewley announced on his BBM Channel, you can expect the feature to arrive in a 10.2 update.
The calendar, contacts, BBM, and SMS will allow you to toggle light or dark theme. Follow Michael for more insight into what he’s working on by adding his BBM Channel PIN C00014277.
