Google rolls out new update to Chrome for improved productivity on Android tablets


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

Side-by-side design

  • 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.

Lola Adams, Product Manager, Chrome, commented on the announcement:

No matter if you prefer using a mouse, a stylus or your finger, the Chrome on Android experience should be as intuitive and familiar on tablets as on your computer or phone. We’re constantly exploring new ways to make it easier and more enjoyable to use Chrome on your Android tablet — whether it’s easier navigation with the visual tab grid, switching to desktop mode or finding the tab quickly.
