A lot of mobile apps these days are getting the option of having either a dark or light mode. This is meant to work in tandem with the phone’s dark mode so that all apps are dark, or all apps are light. However, this isn’t as common with desktop based apps and websites, but it seems that we are moving in that direction.
In fact, it seems that Google has made some changes to its search page on desktop where users can now choose to enable dark mode. This is similar to the Google Search app on iOS and Android devices that already have dark mode, so it’s nice to see it brought over onto desktop as well.
Users will be able to find the settings in either the main Google Search page where they can click on “Settings” and under “Appearance”, there should be an option for dark mode. Alternatively, they can also find the settings in the search results page where they can click the cog icon and there should be an option for Appearance as well.
However, if you don’t see this option available for you yet, don’t worry as Google is in the process of pushing it out to everyone. Google has actually been testing it out since December 2020, but it looks like it is now ready for everyone.
