“Dark mode” has grown in notoriety to the point that almost all software and web application that you encounter nowadays have dark mode (even Brumpost has it – toggle the button at top right corner) and it’s also true that you can turn on dark mode on Google search result page as well.
Google search engine too offer this feature as well and that is a pretty decent feature we’ve all been longing for considering the fact that many of us had to work in the confines of our homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since medical practitioners have made it clear that blue lights are bad for the eyes, it’s worth understanding that dark mode are usually the alternative because of the comfort it offers.
Many of us use Google to search for information across the internet and that is why the service is a big deal to most of us. The day Google went down for a couple of hours, the entire world was on a stand still – that’s how important Google is.
Turn on dark mode on Google search
While this is still based on experimentation, Google search dark mode is available to some users but not to everyone and one way to find out if you’re part of those privileged enough to have this is when you find a banner saying “Enable Dark Mode” on he top right of the Google’s homepage or even on the search result page, then you’re one of them.
If you haven’t, don’t worry, Google is rolling out the update soon. In case you have missed the banner alert, you can go to your “Search settings” on the bottom right of the Google homepage.
There are a few alternatives you can quickly do to enable dark mode on Google right away.

Fire up your Google Chrome and type in chrome://flags

Enable the “Force Dark Mode for Web Contents” option.
Close Google Chrome and then re-open the app
This feature will turn on dark mode universally on all websites that you visit on your Chrome browser. If that’s your thing, then you can be rest assured that you’ll stay in the dark for as long as you want.
Wait! There is a Chrome extension.
There is an extension called “Dark Theme for Google” with which you can enable dark mode only on Google search homepage, result page and the image search results page.
This extension will also allow you to add custom CSS code if you’d like – for those who know how to code but you can eave out the default look and feel which is still very much cool.
