Google Chrome gets a little Material You Style to makeover via Google Flags. For those who don’t know, Material You is a new style that Google announced with the Android 12 at its Google I/O 2021 event.
“Material You” is a design language that the search giant will implement on its mobile ecosystem starting with the upcoming Android 12 official launch. Some apps like Gboard and Google Weather app are getting a little touch of this new design language.
According to the report by Android Police, Google Chrome version 90 has a Chrome Flag that will let users experience the new Material You design on Google Chrome.
Users can enable it by typing this chrome://flags/#theme-refactor-android URL in the search bar and then select Enabled from the drop-down menu next to the theme refactor option. Once you select the enabled option, it will ask you to relaunch the chrome and you will have to relaunch it. Then again close the Google Chrome browser (also close it from the recent apps) and then again launch the browser. This time the settings will be implemented and you will see the Material You-based theme style on the Chrome browser.
Once you relaunch chrome, you will see the new design when you tap on the overflow menu button on the browser. There will be new round edges instead of the sharp edges found previously. The design looks fresh, updated, and more modern. Some users will face issues as it might not work with the older devices or older versions of Android.

The new design looks quite fresh and appealing. The search giant is planning to bring this new design to all of its apps in the upcoming months.
