Google Chrome 74 for desktop to offer Dark Mode quite soon

25 April 2019 2

Google has recently made Chrome 64 for desktop available on Windows 10, Mac and Linux platforms offering various bug fixes and security improvements in addition to the much awaited dark mode. Though unfortunately, the feature is currently only available to a limited number of users as the Chrome community manager revealed in a statement in this regard,

“I can confirm that we are rolling out this feature to a small number of Chrome M74 users now and that it will become more widely available in the near future,”

So in case you’re looking forward to getting dark mode on Chrome 64, you could wait a couple of more weeks to get it to testing.


Apart from the dark mode, the update brings 39 security patches in total improving upon the security of the browser. Interestingly, the Dark Mode would work together with the system level settings on Windows 10, meaning by that in case you apply system-wide dark mode on Windows 10, it would automatically get enabled on Google Chrome as well when the features become available to all.

The purpose to bring it to a limited number of users first is to first dig out any possible issues it might come up with which could then be sorted out before it's released to the masses. Are you excited to experience the dark mode on your Google Chrome browser? Let us know in the comment section below.

I'm also on Chrome 74 - version 74.0.3729.108 (Official Build) (64-bit). But at the moment only a few users are getting the night mode. By the next month, it should be there.
