15 tips and tricks for Chrome on Android (2018 edition)

Last year, we compiled a list of 15 tips and tricks to get the most out of Chrome on Android. The browser has plenty of hidden features, either tucked away behind flags or simply not pointed out by Google. Since that post was published, several of the features we highlighted have been removed (like the Chrome Home UI), and new ones have been added.

As such, we thought it was time for another Chrome tips and tricks post. So enjoy, and let us know in the comments if you know anything we didn't cover!

[Update: Beta now live] Google Voice recruiting testers for new Wi-Fi (or mobile data) calling feature

For mobile users juggling a bunch of different devices, Google Voice can be something of a godsend. Not only does it let you share a single point of contact through which people can reach you no matter which phone or tablet you're carrying at the moment, but it does so without requiring the party on the other end to install a specific app — everything travels over regular voice calls and text messages. While that's great for compatibility, there are a number of reasons why you might not want to rely so heavily on the voice-call network, from running low on your monthly minute allocation, to difficulty finding a reliable cellular signal.

Your Google Play Store review edit history is now visible to the public

App reviews in the Play Store can sometimes be a quite useful resource. Like pretty much any platform for commentary online, you've got to have a discerning eye in order to sort the genuinely useful information from all manner of fanboi rants or misdirected attempts for customer service, but it's still an asset plenty of us turn to time and time again.

A minor update just rolled out that restores this simple alternative.
