Google dark mode is coming to desktop – and you may already have it

(Image credit:

Google is about to take a step further into the dark side, by implementing a dark mode setting on its desktop search page. If there's something we know for sure, it's that people (and vampires) love dark mode so this will go down a storm with the search engine's users (especially those who enjoy a late night Google).

In case you've been living purely in the light up until now, dark mode is a setting that turns an app or homepage from its usual colour profile into, you've guessed it, a dark version. Perfect for scrolling in low light situations, to alleviate eye strain or just for when you fancy a change, dark mode has become a staple function for many (including some of the best android apps and iPhone apps) – and Google's desktop version may be with you already.
