    So at one time a few months back I tried and tried to put Google into dark mode. Even though I have my note 9 theme in dark mode, I couldn't get Google feed into dark. So randomly about 2 months ago I woke up, looked at my phone and magically Google was in dark mode. I was in disbelief, no idea how that happened. It lasted a while and all of a sudden about a week ago it went back to all white? Wth?! Ive tried everything. Nothing has changed. Why would it randomly change like that?? So frustrating. It's just that I have time now that I'm stuck at home, I'm trying to figure this out

    Open your Google app, tap More at the lower right, then Settings>General>Theme, and adjust it there.

    When I hit more- settings- general I don't even have theme as an option. I get this:

    You already scrolled down to look for more options?

    Also, which version of the Google app do you have? I'm on 11.2.7.21

    Hmm, I know it's not just a Pixel thing, because I can turn on Dark Theme on my Lenovo Tab 4 8. I am using the Beta version of the Google app, so maybe that's the difference. You could try changing to the Beta version by going to the Google app's Play Store page, scrolling down, and seeing if you can join the Beta program there.

    The dark mode setting is in my Google app as well. I had no idea it was even there so thanks for pointing that out! My app version is the same as yours so maybe it is a beta feature. Not sure why the op's was dark and then reverted to white though.

    I'm on exactly the same version(11.1.9.21.arm64). It doesn't have any "theme" option provided. I checked Google Play Store and the Google app under the phone settings. Updated haven't been disabled and none is pending.

    Crazy that I had dark mode for several weeks and then it disappeared

    I downloaded the beta version and there's no dark mode on there either. Bummer

    Possibly a Samsung thing? If you turn on Samsung's own Dark Mode, does that affect the Google app as well? https://www.androidcentral.com/how-e...samsung-galaxy

    Oh good! I thought you mentioned before that you tried the beta version and it wasn't there.

    Yeah earlier I just downloaded something called Google beta from the play store and clearly that wasn't it. I had to apply, be accepted and then an update was immediately available for me

    Tbh I rarely use the app since the search engine in my Samsung internet browser is Google anyway. I just like having everything with a dark theme.

    KIDS, it's simple. You can't activate dark mode for everything UNLESS you stop using a packaged theme! You can find the individual components OF the theme, but if you use the complete packaged theme, Samsung locks out the light/dark choice automatically!

    That's the whole problem, right there. Install the needed bits individually and it's fine.
