How to activate dark mode in Google Search?
As of Tuesday, May 19, 2020, Google will begin rolling out an update to its search app on Android and iOS. Once installed, the app should default to dark mode if the option is enabled system-wide. Otherwise, you will find a new menu in the settings to do it manually.
- Open the Google app
- Tap the icon More bottom right then on Settings
- In the menu General, identify the option Theme
- A pop-up opens with three options: Clear / Dark / System default setting
- Choose Dark or System default setting if your environment is already in dark mode, and voila.
The dark interface allows you to have a more unified appearance with the rest of Google applications if you have activated Dark Mode system-wide or individually for each application. The Google Play Store, Gmail, or even Google Photos have had successive rights in recent months. Dark mode is a way to relieve eye strain while conserving your battery life.
Finally, if the latest update of the Google app is not yet available on your smartphone, you will have to wait a little bit. It should be in the hours or even days to come. Otherwise, you can still take advantage of it now by downloading the latest APK directly.
