I can’t access the dark theme option in Gmail or the Google app. Everything I’ve read suggests it’s accessible via the system settings app in Android 10, or on a per app setting on pre Android 10 devices.

Furthermore, I got a "new" phone recently and the first time I started Gmail, I checked the General settings and no Theme options.
I’m currently running Oreo and I have dark theme in the following Google apps:

So what am I missing?
P.S. I’m asking this here because I’ve reported this problem to Google several times and no one has ever got back to me.
