  • Dark mode! It’s finally here.

  • Some search results.

  • To turn it on, go to Settings. On Google.com, the link to the settings is in the lower right corner. On a search results page, it’s in the upper-right corner under the gear button.

  • Once you are on the settings page, click on the new “Appearance” section and select “Dark Mode”. If you don’t have an Appearance section, Dark Mode hasn’t been introduced for you yet. That’s it!

  • As soon as you have activated the dark mode, you can switch between the modes via this new design option in the settings corridor. (Maybe Google will make this visible to everyone soon?)

  • Dark mode works for any other search section. Here is “news”.

  • Books.

  • Pictures.

  • Shopping.

  • However, this menu requires some work.

The time has finally come: Google.com is getting a dark mode. What was once the domain of janky site theming browser extensions can now be activated right from the Google homepage. An official post from the support forums states that Dark Mode will be introduced in the desktop Google search from today and will reach every user “in the next few weeks”.

Whether or not you have dark mode at the moment depends on your Google account. I have the new mode on two of my four Google accounts (don’t ask), including both a personal account and a paid Google Workspace account. To activate the function, go to the settings of Google.com – on the start page this page is linked at the bottom left and on a search results page it is located under the gear button in the top right. On the settings page – when the dark mode has arrived in your account – you will see a new section “Appearance” where you can activate the style.

After enabling dark mode, you get a quick topic switch in the gear button that allows you to easily switch between dark and light mode. The dark setting seems to work in all areas of Google.com like news, shopping, books, pictures, etc.

If you don’t have a “Appearance” section in Settings, you don’t have Dark Mode yet. Still waiting!
