Google Play Store is an official app store for Android operating systems that allows users to browse and install their favorite applications. Basically, Play Store comes up with a default light theme. If you’re bored of using the light theme, Google Play Store allows users to switch between light & dark modes to gain a new experience. In addition, enabling dark mode on Play Store also helps reduce eye strain and improve visibility in dark environments.
How to Turn On Dark Mode on Google Play Store
 Unlock your Android device and open the Play Store app.
 From there, click the Profile icon at the top right.
 Further, scroll down and choose Settings.
 Under Settings, click General.
 Under General settings, scroll down and click the Theme option.
 From the available themes, choose Dark.
 The entire appearance of Play Store will change from the usual light theme to a dark theme.
If you want to revert the default light theme back on your Google Play Store, follow the same procedure as mentioned above and choose the Light option instead of Dark.
Users with the latest version on Android smartphones & tablets can configure the Play Store to follow the system appearance settings. By enabling that, the dark mode on Play Store will be enabled automatically when you have turned on the system-wide dark mode.
Note – Remember that system-wide dark mode is only available on devices that are running on Android 10 and above. For Android 9 (Pie) and early versions, you should manually enable the dark mode on Play Store settings.
 Launch the Play Store and let it follow the system settings (Profile picture → Settings → General → Appearance → Theme → System Default).
 Enable system-wide dark mode on your Android device (Settings → Display & Brightness → Dark Theme → Enable).
Note – The steps for system-wide dark mode may vary on a few Android smartphones depending on the manufacturer.
 Now, launch the Play Store and use it with the dark theme.
