How To Enable/Disable Dark Mode For Google Search For Desktop Browser, Android, & IOS?

by ,

Google just announced the dark mode for the google search, and if you too want to implement the dark theme settings to your google search, then in this post, I am going to tell you how you can do this.

First of all, you have to understand that there is a difference between a dark mode for Google Search and Google Chrome.

Dark Mode for Google chrome will implement a dark theme to Chrome’s home screen, its settings etc, but it will not enable dark mode for the google search result page.

Dark Mode For Google Search

There are different settings to implement the dark theme for the Google Search result page (SERP), which I am going to tell you in this post.

Note: Right now, Google just released the dark theme in Google Search for PC browsers. Users will not be able to implement these changes for their Android or IOS phones.

How To Enable Or Disable Dark Mode For Google Search On PC Browser?

For Chrome

  • Open Chrome
  • Go to the Google search bar, and search anything
  • Tap on the setting icon from the right top corner of SERP (search engine result page)
  • Tap appearance
  • Choose dark/light

For Firefox

  • Open Firefox
  • Go to the Google search bar, and search anything
  • Tap on the setting icon from the right top corner of SERP (search engine result page)

As per my check on 28 August 2021, I am unable to spot dark mode settings for google search in safari.

Google has released the dark theme for Chrome on Android & IOS, but it will not help you to set the dark theme appearance on the Google search.

As of now 28 August 2021, Google just released the dark theme support for Google search for PC browsers but not for smartphones.

But you can use desktop site settings in your mobile browser to get dark theme in Google Search for mobile (Android, IOS).
