Google Chrome for Windows 10 to Get Dark Mode Soon, Engineer Reveals

Google Chrome for Windows 10 to Get Dark Mode Soon, Engineer Reveals

But today, we will be talking about a tool called Windows Auto-Night Mode that lets you toggle between Light & Dark theme easily. "Windows 10 allows users to set their apps to "light" or "dark" mode," he said.

Reported by a reader to the team at 9to5Google, the browser reports itself as Chrome 70 on Android which seems to go - at least in part - against the information released by Google saying it's a derivation of the Cast platform. Windows 10 has had dark mode since 2016, so it's certainly odd that macOS got Chrome's dark mode first despite its later release date on Apple's computer operating system than on Windows.

As noted by, Kasting had submitted a bug report in May past year referring to the absence of a dark mode on Google Chrome. Do remember that Canary builds often have a lot of bugs so make sure you don't use Canary builds for your day-to-day work.

Google engineer Peter Kasting confirmed as much in a Reddit post, writing that the team is working on a dark mode feature for desktop.

In other words, don't even think of using it as your daily driver because you won't be able to do it.

Next, you need to edit the Chrome Canary shortcut parameters to force it to launch with the dark mode enabled.

We all know very well that the tech giant Google's web browser, of course, Google Chrome has won the browser war: with more than 50% stake, it is ahead of the competition on both desktops and smartphones.

Right-click on the shortcut icon and select Properties. The operating system and native apps adapt automatically to this "dark mode", but third-party apps have to be updated simply to adapt to the new interface of the system.

The obsession around Dark Mode continues, as in the last few days we have heard about nothing but the upcoming dark side of Google Chrome.

There will be no background application running as it will be configuring the Task Scheduler to toggle between the dark and the light themes automatically. The new hover cards will replace the existing tooltips and will match the current UI of Chrome.
