While the dark theme on Chrome looks excellent and reduces eye strain, it misses out on an important feature – Dark Mode Scheduling. Google Chrome for desktop doesn’t have a dedicated dark mode or dark theme option. To apply the dark theme on Chrome, you must enable dark mode on your Windows 10/11 computer.
Chrome doesn’t include any scheduling option for the dark mode to turn on and off at a particular time of the day. Not only Chrome but almost all modern web browsers like Edge, Firefox, etc., misses out on the dark mode scheduling option.
