What is the global dark mode on MIUI 11?
The global dark mode, also known as the system-wide dark mode, is a new feature initially offered on Android 10 operating system. Different from the traditional dark mode or night mode on MIUI 10, which only offers a partial dark mode, the global dark mode will enable the dark theme applied to the entire system settings and all apps that that support dark mode without needing to turn on the dark mode feature in the app one by one.
