After Windows and macOS, Chrome OS could join the league to offer dark mode to its users. As Android Central noted, Chrome OS Canary Channel got a dark mode feature. It is evident that Chrome Canary was built for developers and is the “bleeding edge” of the web. The platform is updated every night, which means it receives daily feature updates before publicly releasing it.
Users can access the new dark mode feature from Chromebooks switched to a special developer mode. Google also warns its users that “Canary can be unstable”. If you still want to activate the function, install the Canary channel. Next, open Chrome and copy and paste chrome: // flags / # enable-force-dark and chrome: // flags / # enable-webui-dark-mode into the URL bar, as Android Central says.
As of now, the feature is not ready and has some bugs. But the digital publication also notes that the bugs seem to disturb other elements of the UI and not just the functionality of the dark mode.
Previously, Google released the dark theme for Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Fit and its mobile application. Last year, both iOS and Android began supporting system-wide dark mode features. This is because dark mode has been requested as users find it useful for reducing eye strain.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, when many companies have opted for remote work strategies, the amount of time that has to be spent on screen = mt has increased. This is where little tricks like switching to dark theme mode come into play. Now, if Google has released an unstable version of the dark mode features, users can definitely hope for an updated stable version very soon.
