Today’s apps need to implement dark mode to make it modern and usable for someone in a dark environment. Including when you are heavily working on a Google Sheets spreadsheet. Here’s how to enable dark mode for Google Sheets.
The dark mode is simply a theme making the background and elements darker except the text. It doesn’t just reduce glare and eye strain when reading at night, but also save more battery power.
Google Sheets on PC browser doesn’t have a dark mode feature. It only does on the mobile app on Android and iPhone. For those who want a dark mode for Google Sheets, you have to use an extension.
