Google has recently added various new features to its AI-based chatbot, Bard. The Dark mode feature is amongst them. With dark mode, users can access Bard in low-light conditions without dealing with the harsh white screen light on their devices. It also protects the eyes from straining and saves the device’s battery.
The dark mode feature is available for all Google Bard users. However, you need to enable and disable the dark theme from the menu manually. This post explains the detailed steps to enable dark mode in Google Bard on various devices.
How to Use Dark Mode in Bard
Google has designed Bard to adopt the current theme of your device. That means Bard will, by default, appear according to your theme’s appearance. You can switch to dark mode and set it as a default by modifying it from the settings.
The following section describes how you can switch to Dark mode on your computer, Android mobile device, and iPad or iPhone.
When you switch to light or dark mode, Google Bard saves your theme preference. The theme then appears by default whenever you visit the platform on your computer again. Follow the steps given below to switch to Dark mode on your PC:
Step 1: Open a web browser on your PC.
Step 2: Visit the official Google Bard website (https://bard.google.com/).
Step 3: Choose the theme option at the bottom of the left-hand side menu.
Step 4: Enable the Dark Mode theme by clicking on it. The dark theme is activated and remains the default theme until you disable it.
Bard is available on Android devices. Users can enable the dark mode within Google Bard on their mobile phones using the following steps.
Step 1: Turn on your Android mobile phone or tablet.
Step 2: Use your web browser to visit the Google Bard website (https://bard.google.com/).
