A Google Docs document usually has a white background for each page. If you want to customize the page color in Google Docs, you can do so in the page settings menu. Here’s how.
To get started, open an existing Google Docs document or create a new file to edit. In the open document, click File> Page Setup to access the page settings menu.
Select a new page color in the “Page Setup” box that appears by selecting the round “Page Color” icon.
This displays a drop-down menu that shows various preset colors.
Click on one of these color options to select it as your page color, or select the “+” icon at the bottom (under the “Custom” label) to create a custom page color instead.
In the custom color menu, you can insert a hex color code (for example, # 000000 for black) or use the color matching tool to find the color and shade you want.
Move the “Hue” bar at the bottom to select the primary or secondary color you want to use, then select a shade using the color matching tool above.
Click “OK” when you have found the color you want to use.
Once you have selected the page color, select the “OK” button in the “Page Setup” menu to apply it to your document.
This will apply the change to all pages of your document.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to use different colors on separate pages in a Google Docs document. To achieve the same effect, you need to spread your content across multiple Google Docs files and edit the page color of each document separately.
