Dark mode arrives at Google search engine. The dark mode continues to spread throughout the length and breadth of the most popular software and services and now it is the turn of none other than Google Search, the search engine of the Internet giant … in the web version, yes, as a mobile application has long since already has a dark mode, also adaptable to the one you have configured in the system.
When in particular the dark mode will arrive in Google’s search engine is not certain, but it will sooner rather than later: it has been tested for some time in a limited way and there are already users who have been able to activate it manually through the service’s preferences. This is the case of the consultant Matt Navarra, whose latest tweets focused on this.

As you can see, the dark mode of Google Search has nothing special except for what has been delayed in being shown to the public: it follows what is marked on YouTube or other sites of Mountain View and although it is still – like all the fever for the dark mode that there is a couple of years to this part – a trifle, it is one more piece to complete the puzzle.
A puzzle, the dark mode, which as we have said extends to a multitude of applications and services, and Google’s search engine, the most popular in the world by far, had to end up adopting it by all means. Now it only remains for it to spread among all users of the service, which Google experts estimate will happen over the next few weeks.
As we have also pointed out, there are already users who have been able to activate it manually through Google Search preferences, but it is expected that Google will facilitate the work with a more accessible button from which to activate and deactivate it quickly, as happens in YouTube. And if they also integrate it with the theme of the browser and the operating system, so that the change is automatic, it will be a great idea.
All in all, if you’re a fan of dark mode, you already know that even if you use your system and desktop applications, and even many websites, not all of them adapt to the trend. But you can force it, if that’s what you want: on the one hand, with Chrome’s universal dark mode (applicable to all Chromium derivatives: Edge, Brave, Opera, Vivaldi…); on the other, with the Dark Reader extension for web browsers.
