Google seems to be rolling out the Dark theme for Google Search on desktop or it may be another test before it could be broadly available to everyone. We got a hands-on feature and here is how you can turn the dark theme on or off in any web browser for Google Search results.
Till now plenty of web services and apps add support dark mode. Chrome, Edge Chromium, Vivaldi, Firefox, Opera, Malwarebytes, and services such as ProtonMail, Gmail, and others can be said as examples and the list goes on, now Google Search is about to join them, but the feature isn’t available to all.
If a dark theme for Google search is available, you’ll receive notification beforehand on Google like shown above
Enable Dark Theme for Google Search on desktop
- Visit Google homepage
- Irrespective of whether you have signed into Google Account or not, click on Settings at the bottom
- Select Search Settings
- If the feature is available, you’ll receive notification beforehand on Google
- In search results
- Scroll down to Appearance with a message to “turn dark theme on or off” with the following options
- It’s no brainer that Google respects your device or Windows 10 theme and follows that by default, you need to select the second option in the above to reduce the eye strain and save energy consumption.
The notification appeared for us in Incognito mode and it lasted for some time, where we can able to test and share the screenshots with you.
The whole appearance section disappeared after that. You may have to wait for a while. It could be available for your Google Account or your device.
You can also force the browser to show web pages with a dark theme with a Dark reader extension.
