There’s no denying that dark mode just makes everything look a lot better than the light theme. There’s less strain on the eyes and the dark screen also looks aesthetically pleasing. And now finally Google has also jumped on the bandwagon and is rolling out the dark mode globally for Google search on desktop.
Google had begun testing the new dark theme for Google Search on Desktop back in December 2020. And now it’s being released for Windows 10 and macOS platforms, after months of testing. However, keep in mind that you might not be able to spot the theme yet since it has been rolled out for all regions yet.

Once you receive it, you will see a “Dark Theme is now available” notification on Google search for the web. Another way to check if you have received the dark theme is by clicking on the settings button on the Google Search home page and you should be able to see the dark theme option under the appearance section. You’ll be able to see a total of three options – default, light theme, and dark theme.
In terms of appearance, it’s the same as any other dark mode, the white background has been replaced with dark grey. Google Search colourful logo appears in white in dark mode. Almost every other app in the market now has a dark mode – be it WhatsApp, Instagram, or Facebook and it was about time that Google Search gets one, especially given that it’s one of the most used search engines in the world.
