INTRO: According to a replacement report from Android Police, Google seems to finally be performing on bringing a dark mode to its OS for Chromebooks. While the two most popular operating systems out there — Windows and macOS — have had dark mode for a while, Chrome OS users have sadly missed out on it for all this time.
Since the new dark mode is currently being worked on, it’s only available in the Canary channel for Chrome OS right now, which means it will be quite unstable and buggy as of right now.
If you’ve got been itching to undertake out the new dark mode on your Chromebook, here is the way to enable it within Chrome Canary.
Head over to “chrome://flags/#enable-force-dark” and enable the flag.
Also enable “chrome://flags/#enable-webui-dark-mode”
According to Android Police, you’ll also use the “chrome://flags/#dark-light-mode” flag to form the Chrome OS theme darker. As mentioned above, the dark mode isn’t all the way there yet, and while some aspects of the Chrome OS interface, like the wallpaper picker, browser, and most system apps look good in the dark mode right now, there are inconsistencies.
Plus, apparently dark mode isn’t working for a few users on Chrome Canary in the least . Clearly, this feature is far from ready right now, but hopefully Google will be able to bring it to the stable Chrome OS channel sooner rather than later.
What do you think about a dark mode in Chrome Operating System? Is this something you’ve been expecting as well? Let us know in the comments.
