Google Chrome for Android has a Dark Mode, but it only supports the search result page. It won’t shift the white background of webpages into black. Luckily, there is a hidden setting to get full dark mode in Chrome for Android. It will switch any webpages from daytime theme to cool dark mode.
Before enabling the full dark mode in Chrome, keep in mind that this is an experimental feature of Chrome (version 86.0.4240.110 or up). It may not work well on every webpage. I’ve checked it with many webpages and couldn’t find any serious issue. The black rendering of webpages was excellent.
Steps to Enable Full Dark Mode in Chrome
- Open Chrome browser, type
chrome://flagsin the address bar, and hit Enter.
- Search for the “
Darken websites checkbox in themes setting” flag and enable it.
- After enabling the experimental flag, relaunch Chrome.
- Now, tap on the 3-vertical dots menu, tap on Settings, and select Themes.
- Enable the new “Darken websites” check box.
Note that if you have previously enabled the dark theme experimental flag called “show darkened search pages on Android” change it to default. It is because both flags will conflict with each other and will bring an unexpected result. Enjoy a complete dark mode experience in Chrome.
The dark mode is a new trend in smartphones and computers. It is assumed that glare from the white screen can strain eyes, so many people prefer the dark theme over the daytime theme. If you want to get full dark mode in Chrome that follows the light/dark system theme, the above steps will bring it to you.
