After months of testing, Google has finally launched dark mode for the desktop version of the search engine, which allows you to swap out Google’s traditional white background for a black background that is more pleasing to the eye and allows significant battery savings.
If you want to know how to activate it, we will tell you everything in the video below:
Google has started making its dark mode available to all search engine desktop users. It is now available for both Windows 10 operating system computers and macOS operating system computers.
How to use Google’s “Night Mode” on the desktop
The company is implementing a phased implementation, so not all users have activated it yet will unfold in the next few days.
To see if you already have the option to access “Dark Mode” or to enable and disable it as desired, all you need to do is access Google.com from your computer.
Once you are on the search engine page, you should find the “Settings” option at the bottom right of the screen. When you press, a menu of options will open and you will need to click on «Search Settings».
You will then access a new screen with various options and will have to look for the one that says “Appearance”. Below that, three options are offered: Specifying the default configuration of the device (ie, if “night mode” has been activated in the computer’s operating system, this also applies to Google; if it has not been activated, Google on the desktop retains its usual appearance) and also offers the ability to manually select “night mode” or “light mode” (default).
If you choose this, all you have to do is hit save at the bottom of the page and Google will turn out black. The company had already implemented “dark mode” in other products such as Gmail and Google Maps, but now it’s finally coming to the desktop version of the search engine.
Remember, if you can’t find the option in Search Preferences, it is because Google’s “Dark Mode” has not yet been activated, something that should happen to your account in the next few days.
