There are numerous complaints in the Google Search Community Forums that the Google Search settings are not sticking. The most obvious example is when you have the dark theme set and Google toggles you to the light theme. But other settings are not sticking for some searchers as well, such as the region setting.
Google’s Aishwarya Tapadar confirmed that the Google engineers are investigating the issue and hopefully will release a fix soon. Aishwarya responded to a number of complaints saying “Thanks for your feedback. We’ve asked our product team to take a look at this and we’ll get back to you with more information as soon as we have it. Stay tuned!”
One searcher wrote “With new Chrome update when I want to search onto something and select “images” tab at the top google search always switching back into “device default” mode and the theme become light. (which I cant change into dark mode cause if I select dark mode here nothing happens). If I select any other tab and do a refresh everything is going back to normal. This is very frustrating, and started to happening only a few days ago since I’ve updated my Chrome browser. Any suggestions?”
Another person How do I put dark mode back, light mode hurts my eyes.” Yes, Google is hurting people’s eyes.
In any event, I assume this should be fixed soon and is only impacting a subset of searchers.
Google Shopping Ads Retail Brand Slider
Google seems to be testing a new feature for shopping ads, where as you slide through the shopping ads carousel, it shows you which stores retail brands are being displayed. I cannot currently replicate this but it does help you see which merchants are being featured in this shopping ads carousel.
Here is a GIF I made from a video shared from Khushal Bherwani on Twitter of this in action:
He shared a lot more examples on Twitter:
🧵 it could be new.

Here are more examples:
I just had a random Google search, and noticed these ads in Google SERP with Brand filter.
NB: DuckDuckGo is a search engine, not a rain coat brand. (As I mentioned just had a random search)@rustybrick pic.twitter.com/BMUEl6nn26

It is subtle, I am not sure that I dislike it or not.
