Google has released a new version of Chrome for Android that makes switching between tabs and completing tasks on Android tablets easier. The company also believes that the upcoming version of Chrome for Android will make it easier to switch between tabs and complete tasks on your tablet. This is in preparation for the release of the Pixel Tablet early next year.
Chrome: New Features
- It can be difficult to find the correct one on a smaller screen with many tabs open.
- To make tab selection easier, Google added a side-by-side design to Chrome. Furthermore, the auto-scroll back feature allows you to swipe back between tabs.
- When tabs are too small, the close button is hidden to prevent accidental closing. One-step restoring aids in the undoing of accidentally closed tabs.
visual tab grid
- If you frequently open multiple tabs, the visual tab grid is ideal. Instead of a horizontal stream, tabs are displayed in a grid with a preview to help you navigate with fewer taps.
- If you have a foldable smartphone, visual tabs are useful because the smaller screen on the outside matches the larger screen on the inside.
Drag and drop to exit Chrome
Users can now easily drag and drop photos, text, and links from Chrome into other apps such as Gmail, Photos, or Keep to share and store content while exploring.
Navigate in desktop mode
When browsing websites on tablets, they don’t always feel like computers. If a website doesn’t work on your tablet or you prefer it, Chrome can always request and display the desktop version. This may enable desktop-only features such as menus and buttons.
Tab groups on your tablet
Chrome for Android tablets will soon support tab groups. Grouping relevant tabs can help you stay organised and focus on a single task without being distracted by the clutter of other open tabs.
Chrome updates are now available on all Android tablets.
