With Android Q, Google has given a dark overhaul to almost
everything, including notifications, settings menu, and as well
as the apps that support the system-wide dark theme.
The majority of Google apps have been updated with support for
the new system-wide toggle. Few third-party developers
including Microsoft also followed the company’s lead and have
been gradually updating Android apps with dark theme support.
Microsoft recently updated OneDrive for Android with support
for dark mode on Android 10 and it appears to be rolling to
select users, according to tips we received from users.

to your system theme, but you may need to enable override dark
theme option in Developer Settings to get dark mode working.
If you use Android 10, open Settings > Developer settings
and tap on ‘Override force-dark” toggle and set it to “on”.
After enabling Override force-dark, you will get dark mode in
the app without waiting for an update.

Photos have a dark appearance. The built-in photo feature also

Unfortunately, the new theme isn’t available to all users just
yet. If you’re lucky enough, the dark mode should show up in
OneDrive stable build 5.41.2.
The app doesn’t come with its own theme toggle, so you won’t
see the changes if you use a version of Android older than
