Today’s update to Chrome for Android focuses on tab navigation, which makes it easier to swap open pages with side-by-side tabs. You’ll have the new auto-scroll feature that brings you back to your previous tab before the close button disappears on each of them. The new layout organizes tabs into grid and even gives you a preview of what’s in them.
One of the new features added to Android Chrome is the ability to snap an image, type some text, or link from Chrome and slide it into any other app. The update also brings desktop mode to Android devices – no more having to use a clunky phone interface when at your computer!
The update is now live on all Android tablets and will be available on the Pixel Tablet when it’s introduced next year. It makes perfect sense that Google is preparing to spruce up their tablet interface as they’re getting ready to launch their own tablet, but there probably won’t be many updates in this area over the coming months.
Google has already confirmed that the company is working on a Chrome for Android update, which will include tab groups, a familiar desktop feature.
