How to change Google Chrome into dark mode

Chrome’s dark mode has lots of advantages from Google’s web browser, and it’s easy to use. For mobile users, making the change will help boost battery life.

Google has confirmed that apps need less battery power for darker interfaces than those with bright, white ones, particularly on devices with OLED displays, where black pixels are actually turned off.

Although the jury is still out on the subject, you might also find that dark mode improves your sleep, since it exposes you to less blue light, which might disturb your circadian rhythm.

Dark mode has already appeared in iOS and Android, alongside macOS and soon Windows 11, so it’s refreshing making the change to dark mode for your browser, since both Google’s Material Design language and Facebook’s latest refresh are very white and bright.

If these reasons sound like a good reason to switch to Chrome dark mode, read on to find out how to switch in Windows, macOS, Android and iOS.

Changing Chrome to dark mode for Windows 10

1. Enter the Settings menu, choose ‘Personalization’ click ‘Colors’ and scroll down to the switch marked ‘Choose your default app mode’.

2. Change this to ‘Dark’ and all apps with a native dark mode, including Chrome, will change color. There’s no need to restart your browser.

Changing Chrome to dark mode for macOS

1. Open ‘System Preferences’, click ‘General’, select ‘Appearance’.

2. Select the ‘Dark’ option. As with Windows, all apps with a native dark mode will change automatically with no further input from you.

Changing Chrome to dark mode for Android 12

1. Dark mode is still an experimental feature in Chrome for Android, so bear in mind that some design elements might look a little strange. To activate it, enter chrome://flags in the browser’s address bar. 

2. Tap the ‘Search flags’ box and enter the work dark. You’ll find two options here: ‘Android web contents dark mode’ and ‘Android Chrome UI dark mode’. If you activate the first option, Chrome will detect if a site’s developers have created a dark version and select it automatically. If there’s no dark version available, the browser will invert the site’s colors. Activating the second option means that the browser interface itself will turn dark.

3. Tap the drop-down menu under each of these options and change the setting to ‘Activated’, then restart Chrome.

4. Now open the settings menu, tap ‘Themes’ and select ‘Dark’. If you can’t see the Themes option, restart Chrome again and it should appear.

Changing Chrome to dark mode for iPhone and iPad

When Apple released iOS 13, it introduced dark mode to the whole operating system, both for iPhone and iPad.

Since then, Google Chrome for iOS has been updated to accommodate this.

You only need to make sure that Dark Mode is enabled in Settings > Display > Dark Mode, and Chrome will reflect this.

Are there other Google apps that support dark mode?

There’s plenty of other apps from Google that can also switch to a dark mode. Gmail in dark mode lets you view your inbox without the glare of the standard white interface, and there’s now a universal dark mode for Google Maps too, alongside a dark mode in Android.

This is particularly handy for mobile devices, as it lets you conserve a little extra energy while using your phone’s battery-hungry GPS navigation.
