How to activate dark mode in Google from the web
If you are on your computer and want to test if you have Google's dark mode, you just have to go to Google.com and do a search. You may get a message saying "Dark mode is now available" next to a button to activate it directly.

If this message does not appear, you can also try from the search engine settings. As explained in MSPowerUser, if you click on the link to preferences At the bottom right of the Google home page, you can find a new Appearance setting to choose between dark and light mode.
Changing your language or region will not affect whether or not this option appears in your version of Google. Neither does the browser you use. If you haven't gotten dark mode, the only thing you can do is wait for Google to extend the availability of the feature to more users.
