How to activate the new dark mode for Google Chrome on Android
As part of the latest updates, Google has released the much awaited dark mode for its Chrome browser. This dark mode enables users to look at their browser more comfortable especially at night. Not only that, but it’s also very helpful for the battery life of the device.
However, it’s interesting to note that the feature is still being tested and not perfect yet. First thing you need to do to turn on the dark mode will be to update your chrome browser. You need to be running on version 74 or higher for it to work. To update your browser just go over to Google Play store or hit the icon on the top right corner and go to “update chrome.”
In the URL bar type “chrome://flags,” this will redirect you to Chrome’s flag settings.
Search for the “Android Chrome UI dark mode,” tap the flag’s drop-down menu and change the setting from default to enable.
When the app opens up again, just go to the dot menu button on the top right corner and click “settings”> dark mode. The tap the slider and you’re done. After this just restart the app and Chrome dark mode will be enabled for your browser. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
However since it’s still in testing mode, there a few bugs we noticed. Not all pages will display in dark mode. I’m pretty sure it will be fixed in the final rollout however if you think it’s still too annoying, you can just disable it in the settings.
