This app forces dark mode with any wallpaper on Android 8.1 Oreo
Dark Mode is something that many have been wanting in stock Android for a while. We have seen this feature added to a developer preview of an upcoming update only to have it promptly removed in the official build. With the release of Android 8.1 and the WallpaperColors API, we can enable this Dark Mode for the Quick Settings panel by applying a dark wallpaper. However, there’s a new application called LWP+ that lets you enable this Dark Mode feature while still using a light wallpaper.
There’s a benefit to using a dark/black theme on your smartphone if it has an OLED panel. OLED has become the gold standard for smartphones since the technology has matured, and it can save a good amount of battery if the user interface is optimized for it. This is why dark and black Substratum themes are as popular as they are and why so many people have been looking for Google to implement a system-wide Dark Mode into Android.

Android 8.1 changes the Quick Settings theme by detecting the wallpaper color. LWP+ allows you to change the theme independently from the wallpaper.
