The Google search Mobile app is getting a dark mode, with Android and iOS users getting the option to enable the feature by the end of the week.
After the update, the app will automatically use whatever theme is already set for your operating system when you use Android or iOS 13. Google search says the feature is starting today, but it will not be available globally until later this week. You will be able to manually toggle between light and dark mode by going to the app’s settings, which users of older operating systems would have to do.
Starting today & fully rolling out this week, dark mode is now available for the Google App on Android 10 and iOS 12/13. By default, the Google App will reflect your device’s system settings in Android 10 & iOS 13. If that’s set to a dark theme, the app will be in dark mode…. pic.twitter.com/ZqSD33ZhNt

If Dark Mode is available on your device, you can see a pop-up at the bottom of your screen, indicating that a Dark Mode theme is now accessible and if you want to activate it, 9to5Google states.
A full rollout for Dark Mode across all of Google’s apps has been slow within the past year. Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Fit have all added a dark theme for Android, and in some cases iOS users, but some apps like Google Maps are still not missing the feature. Both iOS and Android began supporting Dark Mode at the system level last year.
