The feature is integrated with the dark mode in macOS Mojave so enabling dark mode at an OS level will switch Chrome to a dark theme as well.

Summarily, settings to turn things off or on with regard to dark mode are not found in either the general settings menu or in under the above-mentioned "Developer options", for the time being.

As per Chrome 73's release notes, Windows support is "on the way". As for the Dark mode in the macOS version, it looks very similar to how Chrome looks when used in incognito mode. However, that said, there is an unofficial work around to get a dark mode of sorts on Windows 10: How To Enable Chrome Dark Mode In Windows 10. In addition to this, the Chrome Lite Pages now work with secure websites apart from the regular ones. Aside from bug fixes and performance improvements, it brings Data Saver support for HTTPS pages on Android, new "Enhanced spell check" and "Safe browsing extended reporting" features, as well as support for media keys among others.

If you are already using Chrome, it will automatically update itself in the background. Those are just a few of the reasons we've seen the new color scheme adopted across operating systems, browsers and social media sites in recent months.

Finally, as Chrome 73 adds progressive web app support to the macOS version of Chrome, and developers can now add badge API to web apps for desktop browsers so that notifications alerts (such as unread notifications) can be displayed over the app's icon from Chrome's home page. The rollout of Chrome 73 is staged and will soon reach users on the aforementioned platforms. If not, you can also go to Chrome - About Google Chrome and trigger the update manually. Additionally, automatic picture-in-picture mode optimisation for video in PWAs and the addition of a "Skip Ad" button in Picture-in-Picture window are among the new features that have entered testing with Chrome 73's arrival.
