Chrome’s Desktop version gives its users access to a wide variety of Browser Extensions. Using them users can add new functionalities to Chrome. However, it is not possible on Chrome’s Android Version. You can easily use a Dark theme on Chrome’s Desktop version but you can’t do the same on the Smartphone version. If you want to use Dark Mode, you will either have to use the Native Dark Mode feature with the Chrome version 74 or use some bypass.

In case you have already updated to the Chrome 74 Version, you should definitely try looking for the Night Mode option within the Chrome Native Features. To do so follow the below instructions. If you are not sure what version of Google Chrome you are running on Android check for updates from the Google Play Store.

Turn On Dark Mode

  • Launch Chrome.
  • Click on the three Dots at the top.
  • Open the Settings option.
  • Toggle On Dark Mode.

If you don’t find this option there are ways you can bypass it and get hands-on experience with the Dark Mode before any of your friends.

Wrapping Up!

Remember the time when everyone started exchanging the Yellow Banana Emoji to activate the Dark Mode on Messenger. Not everyone succeeded to activate the feature while it was on Messenger’s Beta version. But soon after the Stable Version was rolled out, everyone had access to that feature. We hope the Stable Version of Google Chrome will be launched soon.
