Google Officially Rolls Out Dark Mode To Desktop Search, Can Be Enabled from Home Page


After a long wait, Google is officially rolling out dark mode to Google Search on desktops. This will allow users to complete their search while bathed in inky gray and avoid unnecessary whiteness during searches. The search engine giant is rolling out the feature globally. And the best part is that users need not do anything to receive it. They will automatically see the toggle on the Google home page that would allow them to enable dark mode. Once the dark mode is enabled, the background of the Google Search will turn dark with white text and blue accents for the buttons and links.

The changes can be easily done by the visiting Setting on the Google home page. One selecting ‘Appearance,’ users can find options like light and dark mode. Those who are unable to find the ‘Appearance’ option need to wait, said Google. The tech giant said that the setting will continue to be rolled out over the next few weeks just like other updates and therefore users would be able to switch to dark mode soon. Google has been working on the dark mode for a while now. There were reports in February that Google is testing the dark mode. As the test was going on, there were several users who randomly got and lose dark mode.

Google had rolled out dark mode for Android phones a long time ago. Many of the company’s app on Android and iOS too had the dark mode feature. But it took the company several months to launch the feature for desktop. This would be a major relief for those who were ready to download extensions in a bid to use dark mode on Google Chrome. Some even switched to other search engines that offered the feature. Among the most prominent names is DuckDuckGo. With the feature now being made officially available to Search, it shouldn’t take Google too long to roll out the feature for Drives, Maps, and other services that users have been accessing on desktop.
