Google brings Material You-style color themes to Chrome desktop

The latest build of Google Chrome Canary contains a feature that will automatically select the color scheme of the browser based on the wallpaper that is installed on your desktop.

Here's What We Know

This feature was first reported by a Reddit user under the nickname @Leopeva-64-2. It was he who showed how changing the wallpaper of a new tab automatically adjusts the color scheme of the address bar and the browser interface. Of course, color schemes in Chrome were available much earlier, but this feature makes everything much easier.

According to the description, the feature "allows you to set the theme color based on the background image color when the background image changes on a new tab page". It will work on Windows, Mac, Linux, chromeOS and Fuchsia.

In general, the feature is very similar to Android Material You, which changes the design of the Android operating system depending on what wallpaper you have installed. It replaced the Material Design concept with the release of Android 12.

There is no word yet on whether the feature will roll out to users, especially since it was found in a Chrome build called Canary, which is used for the earliest testing of new features.
