Hi @ironass, this is something I came across yesterday:-

Update 2 (November 1 , 2022)

01:11 pm (IST): Google support has confirmed that Google Assistant is not stuck in dark mode, but its an intended behavior. That means the light mode for Google Assistant is no longer available. Here’s the full statement:

Google Assistant regularly tries new ideas to see what works and what could work better. This includes ways to make our products look and feel consistent throughout our product ecosystem.

To offer a more helpful visual experience across all your devices, including Pixel Watch and Google TV, when you engage with Assistant on mobile Light mode is no longer available – it will now have a dark appearance, even if you have Dark theme turned off in your phone settings. (Source)
