After the Android 10 update, when using Dark Mode, the Google Search widget displays black text on a dark gray background, making suggestions almost impossible to read.  I contacted support chat and they didn't understand what I was asking for - they thought I was talking about the bar itself being gray..  Here is a screenshot of what I'm talking about.  Note that the history is barely visible.  I assume it's meant to be white?  https://imgur.com/wtMBE1l

Hi Tyler,
 
I have Android Q, however, I believe is by design like that because if you write something the words will be in white.

AndroiFy - thanks for your response - However, when I asked on Reddit about this, someone else responded that their screen looked entirely different from mine.  Here is the sample they sent: https://imgur.com/a/q7AirjK

When I type in the same word ("test"), here is what I see: https://imgur.com/zMFTdNB

Notice how their text is a light gray while mine is black.

Hi im suffering from this issue too, notice it has began also in android 9 when i was a beta tester for the Google app with black theme, i hoped upgrading to android 10 will solve this, but it didn't.
Notice also that the text is sometimes black, sometimes gray, and sometimes white. 
Also o tried to report this issue but the screen capture added to the report is always the current screen (the report menu) and no way to add another screenshot (of the suggestions), so maybe also take a look into that google.

I can replicate this issue. It seems that some search terms appear darked out, some white. https://imgur.com/a/nfgKeE3
I thought initially that it was that the darked out search items were from other devices (e.g. desktop pc), but I find that it is seemingly random.

A side note, it may be that Google is trying to highlight my most embarrassing searches? I'm not really a Dodie Clark person!

Okay so I'm having a similar yet different issue??
I updated my system to Android 10. I have dark mode switched on and integrated system wide. Yet my Google apps are still in default light mode? Google, Chrome, photos all of them. 
Any clue as to why this happening and how i can resolve it?
