A couple of Google apps are getting notable updates this week.
First up, the main Google app is getting a dark mode. We've seen Google add a dark mode to several of its other apps over the recent months and so it's nice to see a dark theme being added to the main Google app as well, especially as Android 10 and iOS 13 feature system-wide dark modes.
The Google app's dark mode will begin rolling out to users on both Android and iOS today (via MacRumors). It'll be available to all users throughout this week, so if you don't see it yet, check back in a day or two. The feature will be available to users on iOS 12, iOS 13, and Android 10.
Also being updated this week is Google Photos. This week, Google is rolling out some improved share controls to Photos to give you more control over who's added to an album and who can view and contribute to a shared album.
When sharing an album, the default option will be to share to a specific person using their Google account, giving you more control over who's added to the album. You can still share Google Photos albums with a link that you can email or text to someone without a Google account.
You've also got the option to turn link sharing on or off at any time as well as the ability to allow or block other people from adding photos to an album. You can remove someone from an album, too, which will remove the photos and videos that they've added.
