Chrome OS may finally be getting a dark mode, however up to now it’s solely been noticed in its experimental Canary channel, Android Central reported.
Before you go tinkering with Canary simply be suggested: Canary is Google’s “bleeding edge” Chrome OS path, which receives day by day updates of options earlier than they’ve been broadly examined. It can solely be accessed from Chromebooks switched into a particular developer mode (to not be confused with the Chrome OS Developer channel). Google warns that Canary can be “unstable.”
But for the time being, to activate dark mode in your Chromebook, you’ll want to have the Canary channel put in. Once you’ve finished that, Android Central says you simply open Chrome and kind in chrome://flags/#enable-force-dark and chrome://flags/#enable-webui-dark-mode into the URL bar. I ought to notice I attempted this on my older Chromebook and wasn’t capable of get it to work. But right here’s the view Android Police captured:
Android Central says the dark mode has some bugs, however notes it appears to use throughout the UI, not simply as darker backgrounds.
Google has rolled out dark mode variations for its Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Fit, and its cell app over the past a number of months. Both iOS and Android each started supporting dark mode on the system degree final 12 months.
We reached out to Google to see if there are plans to roll out dark mode in Chrome OS to all customers, and can replace if we hear again.
