How To Google Sheets Dark Mode

Google Sheets is a popular online spreadsheet tool that allows users to create, format, and edit spreadsheets simultaneously with other users. Though Google Sheets initially didn’t support dark mode, thanks to recent updates, you can now enjoy working on your Google Sheets in the much-awaited dark mode. Dark mode is easy on the eyes, reduces glare, and allows for better contrast. In this blog post, we’ll guide you on how to enable dark mode on Google Sheets.
