Among the Android and iOS users, the dark mode for various apps has always been in high demand and off late has become one of the most requested features. Google along with other developers have been very prompt when it came to rolling out support for almost all of their apps.

American tech giant Google reportedly has been testing the dark mode feature on its search results on the desktop. The dark mode of the desktop version of Google resembles the dark mode of the mobile version of the search application by Google which has been available on all android platforms since May this year. The previous month, Google had rolled out improvements to the dark mode of its Chrome Browsers that is expected to be available quite soon on Microsoft Windows 10 and Apple macOS. While the colourful logo of Google has been replaced by letters in white, the white background has been replaced with a dark grey hue in this feature. It has been claimed that the dark mode is not yet enabled on the homepage of Google.com but would probably change when this feature goes live. It has also been reported that the dark mode on the desktop version of Google search currently seems to be available to only a small fraction of the users. The dark grey colour of the dark mode of Google’s desktop version matches the first-party mobile apps. The microphone icon will remain unchanged and the grey coloured outline of the search field will be reversed. The text will be appearing in grey colour and the inks will be appearing in Blue according to the screenshots that were provided in the report. The current version only changes the colour of some elements.

A random user on Reddit has claimed to have seen the dark mode said that the dark mode of the search engine just randomly turned on by itself but it reverted to its original light version after some time. Another strange thing that the Reddit user mentioned that the dark mode did not come with any type of a toggle button which meant that the dark mode could not be turned off while it was active.

A commitment was made by engineers working in Google on the Chromium Gerrit that gave details of the improvements coming to the dark mode of Google Chrome according to a report released somewhere in November. It is being said that the American search engine giant will be updating WebUIs and to bring a complete dark mode experience and that includes the scrollbars appearing grey, according to the commit. These enhancements that are in the pipeline will be allowing Google Chrome to apply the dark mode to the additional elements of Chrome which includes the scrollbars. This very update is already being provided for testing through the Chrome Canary Channel. One will be able to test these features by adding –enable-features=WebUIDarkMode, CSSColorSchemeUARendering \ –force-dark-mode to the line of command.
