Dark mode on smartphones has its cult following. The dark mode feature, which darkens the UI across the system, is available on the majority of newly released Android devices. You can also enable dark mode in other applications such as Twitter, Instagram, and WhatsApp. The feature is thought to be more eye-friendly and uses less energy than the brighter light mode. In this article, we’ll look at how to enable dark mode in Google Editors suite products like Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
How do I turn on dark mode in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides?
- Open any of the Google Editors suite apps on your Android device: Docs, Sheets, or Slides.
- In the top left corner, tap the hamburger icon with three horizontal lines.
- Select Settings.
- Tap on “Choose Theme” under “Theme.”
- You will be presented with a prompt menu in which you can select “Dark,” “Light,” or “System Default.”
- To enable dark mode, select the “Dark” option. The “System default” option mimics the mode you’ve selected for the Android UI.
After enabling dark mode for Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, you can view a specific document in “Light mode” by following the steps below. When the app or the system is in dark mode, this change of view will be available for reading in light mode. If the app or system is already in light mode, you will not be able to switch to dark mode for a single document.
