It would be recalled that in December 2021, the tech giant had notified users that the dark mode will be available for everyone who prefers saving their device energy consumption, while also reducing the burden on their eyesight.
In a new update from a Google product support manager, Google announced that the new feature will be available ‘over the next few weeks’, while noting that that the new feature is already available on Google’s Search’s mobile application.
The Dark mode will however be available for use on the Google’s homepage, the search results page and settings.
The new feature can be enabled by clicking on Settings > Search Settings > Appearance and then switch the “dark” option on.
The search engine giant has also infused a ‘device default’ option that will help configure automatically the mode according to your device settings.
Despite the official announcement of the new feature and its subsequent spotlight, it will need some time before it can be widely available for use.
But then will it be worth it?
Well, the feature will be tested with time.
With the buzz and excitement coming from the official announcement by Google about the new feature, there have been a large dose of social media reports indicating that users were discovering a ‘sun icon’ which can be used to turn the feature on and off, thereby side-stepping the manual method of turning it on via the settings page.
It remains to be seen if this will be termed as a part of the official update for Google itself or another feature that its development is in the offing.
Like we always say, time will tell!
