Some users have begun noticing the new dark theme in Google Search, 9to5Google reports. Previously, the dark mode was dark grey, whereas now, Google plans to switch it to fully black or #000000, which can be helpful for owners of devices with AMOLED or OLED screens.

The tech giant apparently continues to slowly roll out and test the new version of the dark theme. The black search background color could potentially help save battery life on smartphones and laptops. However, it won't make any big difference since users do not spend much time in Search.

With Topics, the new concept will assign users five interests per week based on their web activity. These interests will be stored for up to three weeks. To do this, Google created a list of about 350 topics available in its advertising taxonomy.

Here's how to turn on the dark theme on your computer:

  1. Open Google Chrome
  2. At the top right, tap the three dots > Settings > Themes.
  3. Choose the theme you want to use.
