Google Search dark mode: Once users select the Google Search dark theme on the web, all the pages, including the Google homepage, search results page, and Search settings will turn dark.

Google first introduced a system-wide dark mode with the launch of Android 10 back in 2019. Since then, Google has been consistently adding support for the dark mode to its various products and services. Earlier this year, Google started testing its dark mode feature in Google Search on the web. Now, nearly five months later, Google has announced that it has finally started rolling out the Google Search dark mode on the web.

“I'm thrilled to announce that starting today & fully rolling out over the next few weeks, Dark theme is now available for Google Search pages on desktop. Thank you for all your feedback on this forum letting us know that this was a feature you wanted to see,” Google Search Product Support Manager Hung F wrote in an announcement on the Google Search help page.

With this update, Google Search users can turn Google’s service dark whether they are accessing Search on their mobile devices or via browsers on their personal computers. Google said that once users have selected the dark theme in Google Search on the web, all the Google Search pages including the Google homepage, search results page, and Search settings will turn dark.
