Google Chrome for Windows 10 was reported to receive the native dark mode but it wasn’t known when it may happen. Well, at least, we have already known that the development has already started. Moving on, the browser with its most unstable version has undergone testing for macOS Mojave for now and this version brings up the most wanted dark mode.
According to reports, the Chrome Canary 70 for Mac has dark mode support. This has been found to work in line with the system-wide dark mode for macOS Mojave. This means you can use the Chrome browser on your MacBook and iMac even in the dark.
Meanwhile, the Android platform receives the same via Chrome 73 beta. And, at the same time, the Chrome 73 for Windows, macOS, and Chrome OS is found to enable support for the multimedia keys. This allows controlling audio or video playback on the Chrome browser directly using the hardware media keys on your keyboard.
In the Chrome 73 beta for Android, the feature isn’t fully working as the address bar still appears in white color. But this is a beta version so some half-baked things and bugs are obvious. Nevertheless, the stable Chrome 73 for Android should bring pure features without any errors.
Other notable changes included in the Chrome 73 beta for Android are a new download manager and an upgraded downloading experience. An animating loading indicator slides from the bottom and the Downloads page also received a facelift and is now showing a full-width image with rounded edges. There’s also a quick shortcut that lets you share the Web address with a single tap or edit the previously visited URL.
