First improvement- Dark Theme
With dark theme becoming the new normal starting Android 10, don’t worry we won’t be talking about tech here, Ather added a dark theme option for its scooter’s dashboard. Riders can manually decide between Dark and Light theme or set it to Auto which automatically uses the dark theme between 6 pm and 6 am. Ather claims that the new theme reduces the amount of light on the screen and eases the strain on the eyes, for a distraction-free comfortable ride at night.
Second improvement- Smart Scooter
Ather also has included a ‘Save Previous Riding Mode’ with the dark theme update. This new feature automatically selects the previously-used riding mode when started afresh. Some other bugs have also been removed and the on-screen keyboard also has been updated to make it more responsive according to the sources.
