On Android Q with device-level Dark theme on.

Text in Google search widget is unreadable: black text on dark background. See screenshot.

Note that I don't have Dark mode enabled (nor available) on the main Google app.

Google app version:

Yup, I was just searching to see if anyone else was having this issue. Can confirm Trending is also unreadable.

Same issue. Was like this during beta for Q also. Have not been able to read text for some time. Not just history, but suggestions also.

Same here. It started around the beta update prior to the last one before 10 final. I was about to factory reset as I have tried everything else. When I turn off dark mode it looks correct, white screen, black text.

Same issue, also when displaying results it switches out of dark mode, kinda pointlesa to have a dark mode where you can't read things, only to immediately switch you back out of it to non-dark mode.

This was an issue during the beta but I thought it got fixed.

Ditto, just adding to the thread so this hopefully reached critical mass to immediate fix. Thx

I've got the same issue. It's really not working well. It would be great if it could resolved soon!

I'm on a Pixel 3XL and same problem. It only started for me when I just updated to Android 10. So it is related to the update.
