    I'm finding the camera hole distracting in apps that have white backgrounds. I know you can turn on "hide cutout" in settings but it just creates a huge bar across the top. I have a wallpaper that hides it on the home screen so I'm fine with it there. Is there a way to black out the top but keep the notification bar, clock etc. within the space on each side of the camera? Seems like a horrible waste of space to just chop off the top of the screen like that.

    You can use the Nacho Notch app. It keeps the status bar icons in their place but it will black out the bar on the home screen as well.

    Thanks I'll check it out. I wish it would leave the home screen alone.

    It's an all of nothing thing. You can always use a dark wallpaper so you won't notice it

    I've been using this app with different phones and Android versions and I'm happy with how it works.

    Mmm. Have you checked permissions for the app? Make sure that Display over other apps is allowed. Are you running the 10 beta version?

    I'm running Pie. I figured it out. the message showed long enough for me to read it. Needed permission to draw over other apps. Pretty nice. I'll toggle it on if I get annoyed by the hole

    Excellent! You can change the status bar height to adapt to the punch hole.

    I don't use it and never changed things there. I always hide the old style navigation bar and use full gestures.

    The home screen isnt the issue. I have a pretty cool wallpaper that hides it in a cool way. It's just with apps that have a white header it really becomes distracting. What's the latests on dark mode google apps?

    I'm running the 10 beta and don't have very many dark mode Google apps. The ones I do have are more grey, and less true dark mode.

    I have dark mode in Chrome, Gmail, Keep, Drive and Photos. In general not many apps include a dark mode with a true black, I only got that in a few of them.

    Ah, mostly apps I don't use. I want true black in Android Messages and YouTube the most.

    Oh right, I forgot about those two. I have the dark mode enabled as well.
