For Gmail users, there are several options for enabling Dark Mode. But the method you will use will depend on the device you are using.

For example, if you have an iPhone, you no longer have the option to use the black theme in the Gmail app. But there is a workaround you can use to get the dark mode effect from your device's system settings.
