That means if a user has switched on dark theme in their Android settings, they will notice the Google software products switching to dark mode in low-light environment.

Google is adding dark mode, or "dark theme support", to Google Docs, Sheets and Slides on Android, it announced today. It's turned on by default, set to align with the user's system dark theme settings.


Users will also be able to preview the document they are now working on in light mode by navigating to More View in light theme.

All Android users will be getting this theming eventually - Google says on its G Suite blog that it may take longer than the usual 15 days to roll out completely. Want to activate the dark mode on Google Docs, Sheets or Slides; here's is how to do it.


For this theme, settings and navigation menus are a lovely slate grey, while white documents converted to a dark theme will be a little closer to a true black. With this update, the search giant's version of word, excel and powerpoint will be available to its users in dark mode.

According to a report by Softpedia News, dark mode was tested on Google.com for certain Android users who navigated to the web page using the mobile Chrome browser.


Last year, Google promised that it would make dark mode available on all first-party apps, and it is slowly making good on that promise.
