Google Search glitches when using Dark Mode

When I click on the text input bar on Google Search (widget or the app itself) and type the first letter, the app glitches (screen blinks) and the keyboard disappears and then reappears very quickly, but any letters that I've typed meanwhile this glitch won't come up, resulting in a mistyped word most of the time, since I'm used to type fast.

This bug only happens if I'm using Dark Mode and when I first open the search. If I'm not on Dark Mode and/or I've already opened a search before, it flows perfectly.

This started some days ago. Maybe after the last Android update (march 16th) or some app update. I'm not sure.

I'm using Android 10 (everything up to date, system and apps) on a Samsung Galaxy S9+

Have you tried to force stop and clear the cache for the Google app on your device?

-Go to settings > apps > Google > tap on force stop > then tap on storage and clear the cache

I've noticed the same thing, didn't realize it was dark mode until I read this. Unlocked Note 10, latest update
