Google Search starts testing dark mode for mobile web

1 Mins read

Google is reportedly testing a dark mode/theme for Search on Chrome for mobile, reports Android Police

The rumored flag-controlled feature tweaks the mobile version of Search with a more night time-friendly gray-toned look, plus a weirdly inverted account avatar and is currently live only in Chrome Canary. 

Following the change, the Google Search results page on Chrome for Android is put into a darker color scheme, albeit one that doesn’t line up too closely with the Google app on Android. For example, the shade of blue used appears to be slightly darker in Chrome than it is on the Google Search app for Android.

If you want to try out the dark mode for Google Search on your own device, you’d be required to download either Chrome Canary or Chrome Dev from the Play Store, and enable the flag below on the chrome://flags page. Once enabled, you’ll automatically be brought to the dark version of Google Search when Chrome itself is also in dark mode.
