Google initiated testing the dark theme for web search in February, which was first traced in December last year.
After a continuous series of testing since a while, Google finally availed the users with the dark mode for Search on desktop. With this feature, users will be able to use the dark theme while they are surfing the internet on their laptops or computer. This announcement was made by Google on a support page. As per the reports, the feature has been rolled and will be available fully in the next few weeks.
On the support page, Google’s product support manager Hung F said, “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!”
The dark mode will avail users with three options to choose from – dark, light, and device default. Among these, the device default option works as per the user’s computer or laptop’s default appearance setting.
