Google Calendar on a desktop browser does not natively support a Dark Mode setting. However, you can follow the simple steps below to change Google Calendar to dark mode in Google Chrome using a browser extension.
With Google Calendar open in Google Chrome, open a new tab. Navigate to the Chrome Web Store by typing "chrome.google.com/webstore" in the address bar.
In the Chrome Web Store, use the search bar to look for a Dark Mode extension. A popular choice is "Dark Mode - Dark Reader for Chrome."
Find "Dark Mode" or another preferred extension in the search results. Click on it and then select 'Add to Chrome' to install.
After installation, Chrome automatically applies a dark theme to most websites, including Google Calendar.
To turn Dark Mode on or off, click the extensions icon in the Chrome toolbar. Select the Dark Mode extension and click 'Manage Extension.'
Here, you can toggle the extension on or off for specific websites, including Google Calendar.
Review Google Calendar to ensure that all text, events, and functionalities are clearly visible. Toggle the Dark Mode extension on or off as needed for the best viewing experience.
