The dark mode enables throughout the app and is nicely implemented. It is a close beta for now, and only a couple of users who were lucky to get invited have access to the dark theme.

Regardless, it seems that we're moving in the right direction and Google is finally ready to flip that dark mode switch for everyone in its search app - and thus Assistant too.
