Google has introduced a new feature in its Search Labs for the Google app on iOS, aimed at enhancing user experience by automatically converting websites to dark mode. This experimental feature, known as "Auto Dark Mode," ensures that users can stay in dark mode regardless of the website they visit.

Auto Dark Mode Feature

The Google app on iPhone, which functions similarly to a browser with its own tab system, now includes the "Auto Dark Mode" experiment. When this feature is enabled, websites will match the app's dark theme, provided the device itself is set to dark mode. This ensures a consistent browsing experience without sudden shifts between dark and light themes. Users can easily activate this feature by tapping the beaker icon in the top-left corner of the Google app.
