Dark mode everything! The Google Search homepage has been consistent in design despite receiving a few visual updates over the years, its overall design has remained a colorful Google logo over a white background, not anymore, Users can now that opt-in for a dark theme.

The company is finally bringing dark mode for Google search to desktop users. The dark mode turns the background into a deep shade of grey while also turning the Google logo all white, giving the site an extra-minimalist look.

The feature is rolling out “over the next few weeks” so not everyone will have it available yet. Whether it’s available seems to depend on your specific Google account rather than your IP address; it’s available in one of my Google accounts but not the others.

How to Turn on Dark Mode for Google Search

  • Open Google.com on your desktop browser
  • Tap ‘Settings’ at the bottom
  • Alternatively, select the cog button on the upper right of the search results page.
  • Select the new ‘Appearance’ (which won’t show up if the feature hasn’t been enabled for your account).
  • Alternatively, select the cog button on the upper right of the search results page.
