  • Google Chrome will soon ship with a feature to match the browser's theme with Windows accent color.
  • It's currently limited to users in Google Chrome's experimental Canary channel.
  • Rather than installing a theme from the Chrome Web Store, you can toggle a button in the 'Customize Chrome' panel

One aspect that many users search for in any piece of software is customization options. Something that allows the user to personalize their experience, whether in a web browser or the operating system itself, at least with color themes, even changing default fonts and customizing entire tab pages in Edge. Thankfully, we know Google Chrome users will soon be able to match the browser's theme color with their Windows accent color, thanks to a spot by Leo Varela on Reddit.

The feature is currently limited to users in Google Chrome's experimental Canary channel, indicating that Google isn't ready to ship it to broad availability yet. It could be working on more ways to improve and enhance it before the general release.

Leo Varela, a credible source when it comes to Windows, Microsoft Edge, and Google Chrome matters, highlighted that the 'Customize Chrome' panel will soon feature a new toggle labeled 'Follow device colors,' which, when enabled, allows the user to match Google Chrome's theme color with their Windows accent color.
