It is currently possible to activate dark mode in Chrome for Android by pressing & apos; flag & apos; (an experimental function) in the browser. This Android-specific flag has now been replaced by a flag that works on all platforms.
A walk on the dark side
When Android Q is released (possibly within a few weeks), it includes a system-wide dark theme that swaps the standard clear white design of the operating system for something easier on the eyes.
If you have experimented with the dark mode for Android, you may have noticed that it is not yet completely ready for release; some controls are hard to see with the new colors, and websites are sometimes made hard to read where colors are reversed.
Now that Android Q is imminent, these problems will hopefully be resolved quickly and we can enjoy browsing the web in dark mode on all our devices.
