Currently, the feature is in testing, and only available via Google Chrome Canary distributions.

Relaunch Chrome Canary, then open a few tabs and hover your mouse pointer over each one to see the new cards in action. To return to the light theme, remove the aforementioned parameter from the Target field in the shortcut Properties screen. Development of the Windows theme was at least, for a time, hindered by one of the developers not having a Windows laptop to use.

Google is working on integrating Dark Mode into the Google Chrome web browser on Windows that paints the browser UI in dark colors.
