Microsoft has pushed a fresh update to the Edge Insider Canary channel, bringing a handy new feature for your theme settings. Available as an experimental option in Edge’s development flags, you can now set the browser to automatically switch between dark and light themes based on your Windows system settings (via TechDows; OnMSFT).
To enable the feature, you’ll want to make sure you’re running the latest Edge Canary build. From there, you can head to “edge://flags” in the address bar and search for “themes” from the search box. Simply toggle the feature labeled “Microsoft Edge theme” to “on,” and Edge will then automatically transition from dark to light, or vice versa, when you change your default system theme in the “Colors” portion of the personalization settings in Windows.
Unlike the Page Translation feature that shipped to Canary users in April, there are no further settings to toggle.
In addition to today’s Canary updates on Windows, preview testers of Microsoft Edge for iOS can now sync their favorites between the iOS app and the Edge Insider channels on Windows. This feature is already available on Android.
