IF your Google suddenly turns black, you are not alone.
Google is constantly evolving and many of you will notice that the color scheme may have changed recently.
Since the early days of the internet – and indeed on paper – there has been an obsession with black text on a white background.
But with smartphone screens and computer monitors, that’s not ideal: glare can dazzle in the dark.
So if you are a morning or night screen user, you might prefer the dark mode.
Google has offered a dark mode for a while, but it’s really just a dark gray.
Now, Google has started experimenting with an even darker color – complete black.
This is especially satisfying on OLED screens – which can illuminate or turn off individual pixels – as true blacks can be displayed.
And it means you get the deepest blacks possible, keeping your eyes from glaring in the dark.
Not everyone will see the new color deepen.
So if you get bold black on your Google, consider yourself lucky.
If you have an iPhone, you should consider turning on dark mode.
Go to Settings and then select Display & Brightness.
Then tap Dark to activate Dark Mode.
You can also enable this setting from your iPhone’s Control Center.
Dark Mode can be set to automatically turn on at dusk or another time of our choosing.
The feature is also available on Apple Macs, as well as Android phones.
