Google has just added a new feature that allows you to make the Google Chrome themes’ color to match your desktop’s accent color on Windows. Finally!

As spotted by Chrome insider @Leopeva64, who also first broke the story about a new vertical view on Edge’s split screen feature, this feature has been living for quite some time inside Canary, the browser’s experimental channel. Take a look here: 

As you can see, the toggle to “follow device colors” can be found in the “Customize Chrome” menu, which is located in the bottom right corner of your screen when you first open Chrome’s homepage.

While this is a great way to customize the look of Chrome and make it match the rest of your operating system, it is still likely to be rolled out slowly and carefully. That’s why, upon our testing, we still haven’t been able to locate this toggle for now.

In case you missed it, Google has also rejuvenated the whole look of its popular browser. It’s a whole lot different from Google Chrome of today: we’ve seen that it has a new font, new color palettes, rounded corners with borders, side panel search, and Material You design language all over it.
