How to Enable Dark Mode on Google Search Desktop and Mobile


Google Search is the most widely used search engine in the world, and we don’t expect that to change anytime soon. Now the landing page is one of the most popular pages on the internet, but the color has always been white. Now, there is nothing wrong with the color white, but not everyone likes looking at a white background, especially if the page is something we use daily.
