It may have been that Files Go was meant for Android Go users - especially those in developing countries where limited phone storage is still a very real issue - weird! Unsurprisingly, black is the lowest, while white, which is featured prominently across Google's apps and the Android OS, has the highest draw. However, it's coming together with a lot of white.
Google also suggested the developers to add a Dark Mode to their application as they will be able to save the battery life on the device and a chart was also displayed by Google at the event that showed at 50 percent screen brightness using a Pixel device. YouTube already has a dark mode, and so does Messages. However, the feature didn't survive to the final release. Well, despite the announcement, there's no exact time given by Google as to when we will see the API working on Android devices.
During this week's Android Dev Summit, Google told those developers attending that adding a Dark Mode to their apps will result in extreme battery life savings. Now, it looks like there is finally change on the horizon.

In 2014, the company began pushing its Material Design style guidelines, which are meant to give Android apps a modern, consistent look across devices, and make the best possible use of available space. Presenting this data to developers seems like the first step of making a case that integrating dark UI options is important. For instance, YouTube users can manually activate Dark Mode by following these steps.
For this to happen on a system level, Google will need to make it part of a future Android upgrade.
