Google Search: a new dark mode in testing

On Wednesday, July 7, 2021, Google announced several major changes to its Google Search search engine. First, the Mountain View firm integrated a new Settings button, now installed in the top right corner of the page, just to the left of your profile icon. By clicking the gear-shaped button, you will be greeted with seven options that are well known to users:

  • Search settings
  • Languages
  • Hide Open Results
  • Advanced Search
  • Search history
  • Your data in search
  • Request Help

Until then, these options appeared either under the search results or in the “Tools” menu. It is now much easier to access it with this new button. According to Google, this minor refactoring already benefits many users and keeps the brand distribution. A little patience if you don’t have it yet.

Custom backgrounds and a new dark mode in testing

Then, the American company is currently testing the other two features with a few select users. The first is about integration. Custom backgrounds in the Android version of Google Search. How they work is not yet clear, but according to some screenshots, the user will be able to choose the background they want or apply a relevant background (if you are looking for a console game) to let it adapt to the theme of your search. for example a PS5).

Finally, the second feature on the test bench is none other than a new dark mode. Tested with a small number of users on Windows 10 in February 2021, Google is therefore conducting new experiments with a small number of privileged people. This dark mode, which is also a dark gray mode with more white text, comes with a new activation button.

The icon gets logically the shape of a sun that turns into a moon when the mod is enabled. This button will land right next to the new Settings button mentioned above. It is currently not possible to know when these two features will be made available to the general public, as the testing phases continue.
