It looks like Google is getting more and more aggressive about trying and testing ads that run on Chrome. The company explained what they are working on and how to enable some of the experiences in the current Chrome beta version 94.
Google has already teased some of the changes.Going back to the New Tab page at the I/O developers conference in May, I saw it in action for the first time. Jun. The company isn’t ready to roll out the changes to everyone just yet, but is currently actively asking beta users to try it out for themselves. To do this, you can enable the flag set below. chrome: flag, It allows you to choose your last browsing session with Google Drive suggestions, shopping carts and recipes.
- chrome://flags/#ntp-drive module
These new tab page features are currently limited to the desktop version of Chrome.
Google also emphasized the radical new interface you can find in Chrome for Android. As discovered in July, the company added a vertical scrolling carousel of Google search results below the address bar that allows you to jump to other results without using the back button/gesture. You can enable this experience by enabling it. Continuous search navigation flag (chrome://flags/#persistent search).
Finally, the company will let you quote the sharing option for highlighted text in Chrome for Android, which was first discovered in June. This experience allows you to create stylized quote card images from highlighted text reminiscent of text-based stories on Instagram. You can try it for yourself by enabling it. Web Note Styling flag (chrome://flags/#webnotes-stylize). Options to send or save text highlighting appear in Chrome’s custom share menu.
As you can see, none of these experiences are new. However, Google is required to publicly advertise these tests and experiments. The company hasn’t done much to get Chrome Flags to public attention before, mostly leaving it as an option for developers and hobbyists to play around with. Instead, Chrome typically relies on server-side/b testing to see how the public reacts to new features and interface changes, without manually turning on and off out-of-the-box. Of the out-of-the-box option. Providing users with the information they need to engage in direct testing is isolated from this strategy. And Google recently added. Chrome Lab Part This image fits perfectly with the address bar with direct access to the active experience. Personally, I wouldn’t really care if Google extended this strategy to other apps and services. This is because server-side changes often take a frustratingly long time to implement each one.
All mentioned experiences are currently available in Chrome Beta (v94). Download from Play Store or APK Mirror for desktop or on your phone.
