One of the features of Apple’s macOS Mojave update is that it introduces support for dark mode. This means that when applied, some apps will take on a darker theme that might be easier on the eyes when used in a low-light setting. Unfortunately this isn’t applicable across all apps as developers will need to support the feature as well.

Now Google has recently rolled out an update for Chrome which introduced features like billing protection and also protection against deceptive ads, but dark mode was not part of the update. However not to worry as support is expected to arrive early next year. This is according to a post on Reddit (via MacRumors) which points towards a new code change that was submitted in Chromium.

This code change suggests that support for macOS’ dark mode will be arriving in a future update, and as pointed out by MacRumors, changes made in Chromium usually roll out every six weeks or so, which means that dark mode for macOS will arrive in the early part of 2019, assuming that nothing goes wrong.

In the screenshot above, it shows how dark mode for Chrome will look like on macOS. For the most part it appears to be a darker version of Incognito Mode, but otherwise apart from the new coat of paint, the features will remain the same. Other Google services such as YouTube also support dark mode, so you can use that together if you’d like to avoid glaring white backgrounds.
