Finally With version 74 Google Chrome brings native dark mode support to its Chrome web browser. Previously on chrome 73, the Dark mode added for Mac users only, But now Chrome 74 is rolling out for Windows, Mac, and Linux users with features like lazy loading and other under-the-hood improvements and also include new Dark Mode for Windows 10 users.
That means If you’re a Windows 10 user, you’ll see the chrome 74 update arrive via the usual mechanism, and dark mode will automatically kick into gear once Windows 10 users enable dark mode system-wide.
But According to a Community Manager on the Chrome Help forum, Google is reportedly only “rolling out this feature to a small number of Chrome M74 users now” and “it will become more widely available in the near future” If you don’t want to wait for Google to fully enable this, there’s a shortcut trick to force dark mode:
