Google’s dark mode has become even darker.

According to 9to5Google, users are starting to notice Google’s new pitch-black dark mode. The old dark way was a relaxing gray, but Google changed it to a genuine black (#000000), which should pop on OLED and AMOLED displays.

Google made the dark mode more widely available earlier this month, but the rollout has been gradual. Few people appear to have it, and according to 9to5Google, some users have received it to lose it. In February of last year, Google announced that it was testing a new dark mode, and in a tweet earlier this month, it announced that the new dark theme was available on desktop and mobile.

The new look appeared on my PC this morning; however, my Google app and Google Search in Safari on my iPhone are still dark gray. The sharp contrast between the gray lettering and the pitch-black background emphasizes the transition, but I like the dark gray background, which has a minor difference.

If you’re still in flight mode and want to switch, here’s how you can do it (if it’s been rolled out to you):

  1. To access the fast settings, click the gear symbol in the top right corner.
  2. Select the dark mode option.

The new display might be a win for those who believed the dark gray wasn’t dark enough. However, it could be again for people looking to save battery life on devices with OLED displays; however it’s unknown how much battery life you’ll save or whether the noticeable visual difference is worth it.
