Ever since Google’s acquisition of Snapseed back in 2012, the mobile photo editor application has matured a lot and has seen noticeable changes. The mobile app is now considered as a ‘pro-level’ photo editor that is available for free. The photo editor is different than other options available in the PlayStore as apart from applying basic filters on the images from your gallery, it allows users to process raw images. Snapseed can also run .dng files which you can process as per your liking.

Over the years, there have not been many updates coming into this app with considerable changes and new features. However, the recent news shows that the latest version of Snapseed will include a dark theme that is more ‘gray’ in color.

This will be Snapseed’s version 2.19 that will allow users to enjoy the darker original look of the mobile photo editor. In the updated version which is expected to be rolled out this week for all everyone, users will find a new section called Appearance in Settings. From there, they can easily toggle the ‘Dark Theme’ on or off, as per their liking. What’s better than the option is easily accessible and the changes will not affect your current edit.

Apart from the aesthetical updates, the newer version will also see the application to support the adaptive icons of Android Oreo. 9to5 Google reported that the icon of Snapseed is now positioned within a white shape that looks similar to a rounded square, teardrop, or a squircle.
