Starting today, the roll out process has started. As per Google, it might take up to a week for everyone to get the option globally.
Google is slowly adding dark mode feature to every of it’s apps. In the past, apps like YouTube, Play Store, Calendar, etc got dark mode. Now the Google app also got dark mode, but still there are tons of other apps in the queue like Google Maps.
The update will be made available to both Android as well iOS users. After the update is done, the app will automatically detect he primary mode of operating system and set the theme accordingly. If your phone’s theme is already set to dark then it will be applied.
User could also manually enable the dark mode by going to Google App’s Settings > General > Theme and select Dark.
Google announced the availability of Dark mode in it’s app via Twitter.
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.
