Why is Google black?

IF your Google has suddenly turned black, you're not alone.

Google is constantly evolving, and many of you will have noticed that the colour scheme may have changed recently.

Since the beginning of the internet – and of paper, really – there's been an obsession with black text on a white background.

But with smartphone and computer screens, it's not ideal: the bright light can be blinding in the dark.

Google has been offering a dark mode for a while now, but it's really just a deep grey.

Now Google has begun testing an even darker colour – total black.

This is especially satisfying on OLED screens – which can illuminate or switch off individual pixels – as true black can be displayed.

And it means you get the deepest black possible, saving your eyes from glare in the dark.

Not everyone will see the deeper new colour.
