Google Drive Embraces Dark Mode: Easier on the Eyes for Web Users

By Copilot, Published on March 21, 2024


Google Drive, the popular cloud storage service, has finally caught up with the dark mode trend. Users can now enjoy a more soothing browsing experience while managing their files on the web.

Dark Mode Arrives

After a long wait, Google Drive has introduced dark mode for its web version. This feature is especially beneficial for those who work late into the night or in low-light conditions. By enabling dark mode, users can reduce eye strain and navigate their cloud storage effortlessly.

How to Enable Dark Mode

To activate dark mode in Google Drive, follow these simple steps:

  1. Click on the gear icon (Settings) in the top-right corner of your Drive interface.
  2. Select "General" from the menu.
  3. Under "Appearance," choose the dark mode option.

What Changes with Dark Mode?

Once dark mode is enabled, Google Drive adopts a deep gray color scheme for the search bar background and sidebar. The search bar itself features a slightly lighter shade. However, it's essential to note that dark mode only affects the file management view. When you dive into editing documents using Workspace utilities like Sheets or Slides, you'll still encounter the familiar light mode.

Looking Ahead

We hope this change sets a precedent for other Workspace apps' web interfaces. Say goodbye to browser extensions and Android emulators—Google Drive's dark mode is here to stay!
