Is this a better feature for a user’s search engine?
Dark Mode is coming to Google Search Engine as they are currently testing its beta phase. This is following the trend of creating dark mode interfaces across online platforms. Just recently, Apple has introduced its Dark Mode on their latest iOs 13 and macOS Mojave. This also supports a system-wide choice for third-party applications on desktop and mobile devices.
Google’s Dark Mode
Google has initially created their dark mode feature on its Gmail and Search apps. Based on 9to5Google reports, the search giant is currently doing A/B testing of a dark interface for desktop-based browser searches for random users. Instead of seeing the custom white background, users will be able to see dark gray color on the search page. The text will be shown gray, while a different blue is going to be used for page names/links. And the Google logo is altered to match the background color and blue search filters like Images and News.
It’s still unclear how long Google will put this on public, but it’s speculated to last longer than expected from users. However, to those who would love to have a permanent dark mode option, there’s a browser extension called Dark Reader, available for Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge.
Here’s How to Enable Black Mode:
- You have to launch the Gmail app on either iPhone or iPad.
- Choose the Menu icon in the top-left corner of the screen.
- Then, Scroll down and tap Settings.
- Click Theme. (If you don’t see the option, you may try to do a force-quitting and then relaunch the app.)
- Select Light, Dark, or the System default. This is a useful option if you want to set the appearance of iOS to change automatically depending on the time of day.
