Back in May, we shared a hack that Google Chrome users on Android could use to access a version of dark mode, but that hack made for a pretty compromised experience as it was forcefully changing the way websites appear.
Google Chrome’s latest update now supports a darker theme which comes with less issues than the hack but it also has its own frustrations.

This could be more frustrating for users since you’re constantly switching from dark to light as you change tabs and access other elements of the Chrome UI.
This is what the official Chrome dark mode looks like right now:
