Google just announced that it will be rolling out a new version of Google Search for both Android and iOS featuring a dark mode setting.
A lot of users love the way dark mode fills the eyes that’s not too harsh especially in the low light environment. And Google has certainly obliged to user requests as evident in the company’s recent rollouts of dark mode features in its apps and services.
How to Enable Dark Mode Setting in Google Search for Android and iOS
Once Google’s new update is live, the Google Search app should detect your system-wide settings and automatically set the app to dark mode if you have enabled it.
However, if for some reason it’s not automatically enabled, you can find the option in the settings menu of your phone.
- Tap the ‘More’ button in Google Search
- Open ‘Settings’
- Go to the ‘General’ section.
Here you can change and toggle your preferred theme with ‘Dark’, ‘Light’, or ‘System Default’ option.
Keep in mind though that you need to be running on Android 10 or iOS 12 and up to get the dark mode feature.
Nothing much has changed in this new update. It’s just your usual mobile search in light mode turned into dark. The good thing is, you can always turn it on or off and go back to what it was before.
Dark mode does not only prevent eye strain, but it can also save you some battery life.
