The company unveiled Material You, a standard design language for Android, during a previous Google I/O.
Dynamic color, for example, was a function that automatically changed the phone’s color scheme to match the wallpaper. Now, Google Chrome might get something comparable.
The ‘Customize Chrome Color Extraction’ functionality is finally available in the most recent canary build of Google Chrome, as discovered by Reddit user u/Leopeva64-2 on a committed pipeline for planned modifications to Google Chrome (version 110).
“Dynamic color plays a key role in Material You, creating individualized and expressive experiences for your users and opening up new possibilities for the role of color in your app.”
Dynamic color uses algorithms to create personalized palettes that prioritize expression and accessibility based on your brand or—starting with Pixel—a user’s wallpaper. Depending on inclination, these colors can take the form of dynamic light and dark themes.
As it simply chooses a color theme for Chrome depending on the wallpaper that has been added to the new tab, the feature is quite self-explanatory.
The feature is accessible on Mac, Windows, Linux, ChromeOS, Fuchsia, and Lacros, according to Google’s release notes.
With this update, there is also a “chrome:/flags/#ntp-comprehensive-theming” flag option for a more thorough theming choice.
By enabling this, the search bar and even the cards that are still in development can be customized.
Waiting for the feature to appear in the official Chrome build is excellent if you want to test it out. Otherwise, you can download Google Chrome’s most recent Canary release.
You must explicitly enable the feature flag by going to “chrome:/flags/#customize-chrome-color-extraction” because it is not enabled by default.
The feature still requires development. The interface, according to Android Police, still doesn’t have a toggle that users can use to move between custom themes and themes they’ve chosen themselves.
Users must disable the feature flag in order to utilize a different color for the address bar and tab once more without any issues.
