Using Google Chrome/Chromium with native Wayland backend in Arch Linux

In the past, we may need to use XWayland when using Google Chrome or Chromium under the Wayland environment. But now (as of 01/04/2021), it’s possible to use native Wayland with Google Chrome/Chromium if they are installed through the official repository or AUR.

Just launch Google Chrome/Chromium with two additional flags:

$ google-chrome-stable --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland


chromium --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland
