Google Chrome is almost ready for Android 12

Google Chrome is almost ready for Android 12

This is beta so you’ll need flags to “Material You” your Chrome experience
Of course, Material You is an integral part of Android 12. And, as shown in the browser implementation, Google designed the feature to re-theme devices based on colors accenting the wallpaper users have set. But that also limits the availability of Material You in Google Chrome for now. In fact, users will need to both be participating in Android 12’s early access programs and have the Canary version of Google Chrome installed.

Material You theming is now available in Google Chrome for Android 12 beta programme participants. According to recent sources, the capability was discovered in Chrome Canary on the platform. The functionality is still in beta, as one might assume. As a result, several page and browser UI components are not themed. For example, the context menu, which still makes use of normal UI components. However, it looks that much of the work on the feature has been done. With the browser’s theming UI for its New Tab page, Discover Feed, and more straight from colours discovered in a device’s wallpaper.

Then, users will need to turn on two flags by navigating to the “chrome://flags” URL and entering the correct terms in the search bar. Specifically, by searching first for “theme-refactor-android” and then “dynamic-color-android.” Once discovered, those settings will need to be set to “Enabled” and “Enabled (full),” using the associated drop-down menu. Then users will need to restart the browser. With the potential that it will need to be restarted multiple times to take effect.

Other users will need to wait on their OEM for this feature
As has historically been the case with Android, users will of course need to wait for their OEM to launch Android 12 before they gain access. That’s if they aren’t on a handset that’s part of the test program for Android 12 and if they haven’t updated to the still-buggy beta. And that’s a process that can take some time already. But Google isn’t expected to launch the full and finalized version of Android 12 until sometime in September. All of that means that this is a feature that still has plenty of time to be finalized and users will have plenty of time to wait too before they see Material You in Chrome on their handsets.
