Google is finally giving Chrome an official dark mode

Yes, please.

Dark mode is life. If you are on your computer for multiple hours a day, the bright glow of Google, Slack, Reddit, and multiple other mainstays can get exhausting on the eyes quickly. Luckily, more companies and app developers are realizing this and giving options for dark mode, but one that has been suspiciously missing is an official dark mode for Google Chrome.

That looks to be close to changing, however, as the next version of Google’s experimental Chrome browser, called Canary, showcases a dynamic dark mode with the browser. How is it dynamic? Well, regardless if you are on Windows or a macOS device, it will look at your system’s theme to determine if the dark mode is appropriate. Hopefully, we’ll see a standard toggle option, as well.

How it looks

TechDows offers a pretty good look at the feature and honestly, it makes me want it even more.

When will this release?

Not much else is known about Google’s dark mode at this time. The feature was first spotted in Chome 74, with its official beta starting on March 21 and running through March 28.

The full release of 74 is scheduled for April 23, but that doesn’t mean the dark mode feature will actually be available when it releases.
