Meetly is a free video calling app for up to 70 participants that has been recognized by the Material Design Awards for its use of the dark theme. The catch, its developers say, is that it was built with the dark theme out of the box, rather than adding it later.

Google highlights the use of color in the Meetly interface, as well as the attention to detail in the illustrations in dark mode. They are not the same illustrations for the light and dark theme, but the colors are replaced by less saturated ones to maintain the relationship between the background and the foreground, the same as in the rest of the interface elements.
