New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on February 23, 2023) follows:

Dark mode has been around for some time now, so it’s a little disappointing that a big company like Microsoft is still struggling to implement this function in Bing Search and Bing Chat.

This explains the growing reports of disgruntled Bing Search and Chat users demanding that Microsoft adds support for dark mode to these products (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10).


Being a highly sought-after feature, users feel that Microsoft making this change will help Bing Search get an edge over its competitors.

Although some have tried using third-party browser extensions to enable dark mode, they were not completely successful in doing so.

They claim that the majority of the extensions break the UI of various websites, particularly those with built-in dark mode.


Is there any extension/theme/tweaks i can apply to make it look just it more visually pleasing? i want to use it but the visual is just hell

Excited for the new chat feature! However, I noticed that the Bing homepage still lacks a Dark Mode in 2023. I have tried using some of the secondary browser extensions, but they mostly break other sites that already have built-in Dark Modes.

Not only is dark mode more visually appealing, but it can also help reduce eye strain and improve readability in low-light environments, such as in the evening or at night.

This mode also helps prolong battery life on devices equipped with OLED displays since displaying dark pixels on these panels consumes low battery energy.

Dark mode for Bing Chat

Dark mode is also highly in demand among Bing Chat users, as seen from these reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9).

A user on Reddit says that if Bing wants to take on Google with the new chat AI, then they should make the addition of dark mode their first priority.

Another user on Twitter mentions that they are not going to switch over to Bing Chat until this feature is implemented.


With everyone migrating to Bing now because of ChatGPT integration, I think it is the best time for @bing to roll out dark mode on their search results page. The light mode is so annoying especially if you are a dark mode user.

Dear @bing the ChatGPT integration is cool and all, but I’m not gonna switch until you got dark mode.

Potential workaround

You can try to get the dark mode on Bing Search and Bing Chat by installing the latest developer build of Microsoft Edge on your device. Windows PC users can download the latest build from here.

We do hope that Microsoft will listen to these requests and roll out dark mode for both Bing Search and Bing Chat.

That said, we’ll keep an eye on this matter and update this story to reflect noteworthy information.

Update 1 (July 11, 2023)

04:26 pm(IST): It appears that the dev’s have heard the user’s demand as Bing Search and Chat receive Dark mode on the Desktop (1,2,3). It looks like it’s being slowly rolled out to everyone.

Finally, #Bing dark mode has arrived.
