Google recently added the possibility to link to a specific text snippet from a website to Chrome, and it looks like the company wants to expand on that feature. As spotted by Chrome Story, the latest under-development version of Chrome is prepping a "Stylize highlight" sharing option that is sure modeled after Facebook and Instagram.
Google is always experimenting with the Chrome interface, though a lot of these tests just end up being cancelled — looking at you, Chrome Duet. While the bottom navigation interface is probably gone for good for now, the company continues testing other novelties, and the latest change to hit the toolbar is a customizable shortcut between the address bar and the tab switcher.
Chrome 92 Beta just landed and is now available for download. While it looks like a rather minor update on the surface, safe for a few interface experiments, there are quite some things going on under the hood, and Google is working hard on making web apps feel even more native with this release.
Google Chrome's release cycle is incredibly fast moving, with new major versions launching every six weeks, and that's no different for Chrome 92. Google has just released the first beta of the new version, and you can download it right here, over at APK Mirror.
Google regularly introduces new features in Chrome through 'flags,' toggles that are only accessible through the chrome://flags page. Even though the flags page is hidden, Google also sometimes enables experimental features automatically in limited tests, leaving some to wonder what changed. Now it seems Google is working on a more obvious place to try unfinished features.
Google unveiled a brand new design language for Android 12 last week at this year's I/O conference. It's dubbed Material You, and it employs humanistic principles like pastel color palettes and creative shapes. Google intends to apply its playful design everywhere by next year, and we hope that the transition won't be rough. It looks like the company wants to start off strong, as evidence suggests that Chrome for Android may be in line to get a Material You makeover.
Google is no stranger to pushing its popular Discover feed across its various platforms and products. You can even find it in Chrome's new tab page on Android these days, with its curated news feed based on your interests. Discover was first introduced in Chrome 54 and has received iterative updates to make it more prominent. It isn't finished, though, as it looks to make Discover even more visible in Chrome while in turn sacrificing usability.
Searching for websites you know you've saved or seen somewhere in Chrome can be a bit of a hassle despite the handy history overview, accessible via the overflow menu in the top right corner of the interface. When you search through it, it only gives you a chronological view of all the sites you've ever visited, without taking into account if a page is currently opened in a tab or saved as a bookmark. An upcoming feature is supposed to change that. It's called Memories and takes all these factors into account when you use it to search through your browsing history.
