Chrome on Android Meta Theme


Starting in version 39 of Chrome for Android on Lollipop, you can use the theme-color meta tag to set the toolbar color — this means no more Seattle gray toolbars!

  3. Go to Settings > Chrome Meta Theme
  4. Add the main hex color of your theme i.e. #dd4b39


Works great but needs improvement

Works wonderful on my Android device. Would love to see an implementation for iOS and MSIE/Edge…
Google was awesome enough to provide documentation on how to do it!
