According to 9to5Google, Google is testing a darker dark mode for its Android search app (via Android Police). This new tint isn’t the same as the one shown in Google’s recent desktop test of a pitch-black dark mode. Rather, the one seen in the mobile app is a shade darker than the standard dark gray, but not quite black. On my desktop, I had a pitch-black search page for a brief while, but it quickly changed to dark gray.
The new dark option in Google’s mobile app may be more appealing to users who have OLED screens and want to save battery life, or who simply enjoy dark mode. The new shade is available in Google’s latest 13.8 betas in the Google Play Store, which you can get via APKMirror, an archive that allows Android users to download items that aren’t readily available on their device, or go the official route by joining the beta test group, according to Android Police.
After confirming that it was testing dark mode on desktops last year, Google said in February that dark mode for Google Search would be available to all desktop users. Though you can access the app’s new color hue on your own, a larger rollout, similar to the desktop release we just saw, might take months to reach more people.
