Google Chrome for Mac gets dark mode support

macOS Mojave is one of the most advanced desktop operating systems on the market. Apple has been working hard to improve macOS for years, adding new features to the operating system while revamping fan-favorite things. At WWDC 2018, Apple first debuted macOS Mojave after months of leaks and rumors. On the surface, macOS Mojave is not a significant upgrade compared to its previous version. However, when we look inside, there are tons of new things that have been demanded for years. One such thing lies in dark mode. In reality, an official dark mode is something we have expecting to see in macOS for years, and Apple finally made it official. The new dark mode now works across the entire operating system, allowing you to turn almost everything into a darker color ranging from the Dock to stock apps.


To enable Dark mode in macOS Mojave, click on the Apple icon at the top of the display, then select System Preferences from the drop-down menu and click on General. Once you are in, click on Dark Mode under the Appearance section. Once you do that, things like the Menu Bar and Dock get a dark theme. Dark mode is expected to work with a wide range of third-party apps. Google today confirmed that its Chrome web browser will support dark mode in macOS Mojave in early 2019. In reality, the newly-released Chrome 71 was rumored to come with dark mode support, but it was nowhere to be found. It seems that Apple needs more time to work on the feature ahead of the release.

Sources say that Google has been testing out the feature. And the company will roll out the beta version of dark mode for developers later this month. In reality, dark mode is not something new when it comes to Google Chrome as it has been part of Google’s web browser for years. However, dark mode is hidden behind feature flags. Once activated, your user interface turns black, allowing for a much easier nighttime reading. Google is expected to roll out the dark mode feature to all users worldwide. However, it seems that it is still in beta testing, which means that we need to wait longer for its official release.
