    I am using oneplus 7. Nuanced Dark is the present theme on my device. But dark mode is not applying on Google app. Others apps by Google (i.e. YouTube, Google drive etc) are automatically turned dark when I applied dark theme on my device except Google (search) app.
    I have also searched for thems option in the app, but there is no such option.

    Google only released properly for pixel devices and other few users. Recently all beta users got the toggle button, that was like 20 days before. So everyone from oreo should be getting dark mode toggle button soon after testing period is over.

    Yes, I know they do it like that, previously it was with Google Play Store app dark theme was keep coming and going.
    They test it before giving to everyone.

    The problem with beta is, it not necessary every device with every OS people go for beta and Google apps are in almost every Android device. So maybe that's the reason to do some random things.

    BTW its all my thoughts don't the real reason :D

    Update is server side so they can turn on or off any time.

    I read some tech articles based on this Google app dark mode toggle update with auto, on & off options testing going on in beta. I also read similar article before on playstore toggle switch as well but I had dark mode already when it released. So idea is some users will have the dark mode from the testing phase and for some it will be turned off for some reason. Wait for week or so, they'll release proper version with toggle switch.

    Hey, I'm on the beta version of the Google app and to make it dark you should go to the newsfeed > tap on your picture > Settings > General > Theme > Light/Dark/System default. It could not be the same for you but if you want to play around, join the beta.
