Chrome OS might lastly be getting a darkish mode, however to this point it’s solely been noticed in its experimental Canary channel, Android Central reported.
Earlier than 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 may well solely be accessed from Chromebooks switched right into a particular developer mode (to not be confused with the Chrome OS Developer channel). Google warns that Canary may be “unstable.”
However in the mean time, to activate darkish mode in your Chromebook, it’s essential to have the Canary channel put in. When you’ve finished that, Android Central says you simply open Chrome and sort 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 in a position to get it to work. However right here’s the view Android Police captured:
Android Central says the darkish mode has some bugs, however notes it appears to use throughout the UI, not simply as darker backgrounds.
Google has rolled out darkish mode variations for its Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Match, and its cell app during the last a number of months. Each iOS and Android each started supporting darkish mode on the system degree final 12 months.
We reached out to Google to see if there are plans to roll out darkish mode in Chrome OS to all customers, and can replace if we hear again.
