Darkness is spreading: Google Search dark theme is appearing on desktop for more and more users

After testing it for months, Google has finally started flipping on dark theme/mode support for Search on the Web for a lucky few. So far as we can tell, it still hasn't hit everyone yet, and this could be just another test or a limited rollout ahead of a formal announcement.

A few lucky players got to try Destiny 2 crossplay on Stadia

YouTube TV reaches 10 million downloads on the Play Store, but probably doesn't have that many subscribers

It's unlikely that its recent Roku controversy has contributed much to this, but YouTube TV has just reached the 10 million downloads milestone on the Google Play Store. While this is nowhere close to the success some other Google apps have achieved, it's important to note that YouTube TV isn't pre-installed on Android devices and that it's only available in the US.

Google is testing a simplified menu for sharing in Chrome

Google is testing a simplified menu for sharing in Chrome

Chrome makes syncing and sharing tabs between devices easy. Sending a link from your laptop to your phone only takes a couple of seconds if you're logged in, while QR codes allow for transferring sites with a snap of a photo.

Google Pay adds international transfers, but destinations are limited for now

Google Pay, especially after its excellent redesign, has become the go-to app among Android users for sending money to friends and family. But one feature that it has sorely lacked is international transfers — something that is indispensable to ex-pats and remote workers. Saving you quite a bit of effort, Google Pay is introducing foreign transfers to its US users, although you can only send money to India and Singapore at the moment.
