New Flag Helps Chrome Users Sync Theme With Wallpaper

Google Chrome users who are currently using the latest version of the browser, Canary, might be in for a bit of a treat thanks to a new flag that has just been launched. It is an aesthetically oriented flag that can help users to sync up their Chrome themes with the wallpaper that they have selected for the new tabs page with all things having been considered and taken into account.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that users who want to try out this flag just need to go to the flags menu (chrome://flags) and search for #customize-chrome-color-extraction. After enabling this flag and rebooting Chrome, users will be able to match the colors of the favorites bar, title bar as well as a few of the in browser menus that are available with their background wallpaper.

This is another attempt by Google to give its users more customization options than might have been the case otherwise. Current tests show that it is available to users regardless of the operating system that they are using, but in spite of the fact that this is the case it doesn’t appear to work with custom wallpapers that users may have uploaded. Instead, this feature seems mostly focused on wallpapers that Google has already included in its Chrome browser.

Google has been trying out dynamic coloring on Android for quite some time now, and it is also a core component of Google’s design language known as Material You. This latest flag indicates that Google is attempting to unify its product lineup for the purposes of providing a more consistent user experience across the board.

Canary has not seen widespread adoption among Chrome users yet due to its lack of stability, and some are questioning Google for opting to focus on aesthetics instead of stabilizing the iteration of their browser. However, those who are already using Canary might be pleased to see this level of consistency since it can help contribute to the feeling of being part of a wider ecosystem if they use Android.
