How to Enable Google Docs’ New Dark Mode Theme on Android

If you spend lots of time on Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides, then we got some good news for you. Google has finally released a dark mode theme for all these apps.  So, if you use these three apps a lot, then do enable “Dark” mode on these apps. This will not only help you in saving your mobile’s battery but will also help you in keeping your eyes safe.

Here’s how you can enable the “Dark” mode in Google Docs, Google Slides, and Google Sheets.

How to Enable Dark Mode in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides?

Follow these steps to enable the “Dark” mode theme on Google Docs/Google Slides/Google Sheets:

  1. Open the app (Google Docs, Google Slides, or Google Sheets).
  2. Click on the Hamburger icon.
  3. Next, click on the app settings.
  4. Now click on the “Choose a theme” option.
  5. Finally, click on the “Dark” theme option to enable dark mode.

You can also preview all your files in the light mode without changing your theme to “Light.” To do this, all you have to do is:

  1. Open the app (Google Docs, Google Slides, or Google Sheets).
  2. Next, open the file that you want to preview in the “Light” mode.
  3. Now click on the three-dots icon.
  4. Finally, click on the “View in the light theme” option to preview the document in “Light” mode.

Note: Dark Mode is a new feature, so make sure you have updated these apps if you can’t see it on your app. However, if your app is updated and you can’t see the “Dark” mode on your app, then don’t get disappointed because you will surely get it on your device in a few days.


Using our phones for a long time not only affects the battery life of our mobile, but it can also affect our eyes in the long run. However, by enabling the “Dark” mode, we can solve these problems. So do enable “Dark” mode on not only Google Docs, Google Slides, and Google Sheets apps but on all the other apps too if you spend lots of time on your mobile and want to protect your eyesight.
