Just like Facebook Dark Mode, Google has introduced the Chrome dark mode too. In the dark mode, the screen will turn from white to black. The best part about Chrome Dark mode is that it will save your battery life as it is proven that a brighter screen uses more power than the darker one.
Chrome Dark mode can’t be enabled by just 1 method for all operating systems; you’ll have to use a different method to turn on the dark mode in all your devices. If you are still not aware of the Chrome dark mode, you should stop worrying because we’ll completely guide you on enabling dark mode in Android, IOS, and Windows 10.
How to enable Chrome Dark Mode for Android?
If you have a mobile with Android 10, you won’t face many problems because the Chrome Dark mode can be easily enabled by turning on the Dark mode theme in the settings menu.
If you are an old version of Android, you’ll have to enable Chrome dark mode through Chrome Flags. Follow these steps to enable it:
• Type Chrome://flags/ into Chrome address bar.
• After Chrome Flags is successfully turned on, you can find the Dark Mode, and it will show you 2 suggestions.
The first option is Android web content dark mode. If you select this option, Chrome will change the way it communicates with other websites. Chrome will first search if there is a dark mode of the website you’re surfing. If yes, then the website’s dark mode will automatically be turned on, but if there is no dark mode of that website, then Chrome will switch the colors of the site to darker ones. You can restart your Chrome to enjoy Chrome dark mode.
The second option is Android Chrome UI dark mode. In this option, your Chrome interface will turn darker by itself. To select this option, you have to turn on the flag, go to themes, and select Chrome UI dark mode. As the darker mode hasn’t been advanced yet, there is a chance that some websites will still show you a lighter interface.
