New Commit Seemingly Confirms a Dark Mode is in the Works for Google Chrome for Android

Android Google Chrome dark mode is likely on the way, as a new post reveals it’s a work in progress for mobile users’ web experience…

It seems Google will introduce a dark mode for the Android Chrome mobile browser, continuing its quest to deliver better quality apps. Along with it being a visual relief in low-light settings, dark mode also saves battery life.

Android Google Chrome Dark Mode coming Soon to Mobile Devices

Just last week, 9to5Google uncovered a dark mode for Windows and Mac, hidden among the flags. YouTube, for instance, already has a dark mode option. And, it’s one of the most desired features users routinely request.

Now, a new commit posted to the Chromium Gerrit source code management page, apparently confirms the tool coming soon:

[Dark] Add build flag and experiment flag

This patch adds a build flag and an experiment flag for the dark mode experiment. It will exclude the night- resources in the build for now.”

Although its existence is now known, there’s no way to access it at this time because it’s out-of-reach, buried behind a build flag.

As with all like matters, only time will tell if it makes its way out to the Canary and beta builds. Even then, there’s no guarantee it’s actually coming to wide, stable release.
