The Android 10 was launched last week and with the launch, Google has teased the night-friendly looks for Gmail and Maps. Dark theme for Google Assistant and Search is all set to rollout for some users. The development was being tracked on a dark mode for the Google App that incorporates Assistant since April, 2019. The limited testing of the new theme had started in June and a wider launch might be underway.
There are many reports about the Samsung and Pixel devices with both Search and Assistant will be adopting it simultaneously. Google Discover has adopted a dark theme which is similar to what has long been at the left of the Pixel Launcher. Another improvement has been made in the Google Search while browsing through the web results. The Knowledge Panels will have carousels and colors adjusted accordingly. On the other hand the search from the Pixel launcher has had this look for quite some time and it was always jarring opening bright results.
Not many know that the Assistant dark theme was partially live for the beta users earlier in 2019. The theme is essential as the white panel that slides up is very stark against apps that already adopt night modes. The Assistant upgrades feed has also got an extension for proactive information where the same gray is leveraged.
The settings can be found under Google app Settings > General > Theme. The options include Dark, Light and Set By Battery Saver.
