These new Chrome features for Android also improve security and privacy while making your online experience more user-friendly at the same time!
How many times have you found yourself on your phone, browsing websites only to get annoyed that they’re hard to read or navigate with your fingers? Sure, there are extensions to fix this problem, but now there’s a new Chrome feature for Android that lets you do all the things you need to without even needing an extension. Here’s everything you need to know about this new Chrome feature for Android and why you’ll love it.
Improved Background Sync
The Chrome team has worked on some exciting new functions and features to improve speed and performance, including the possibility of implementing Google Drive. One of these major updates is the introduction of an improved background sync function which is great news for users as well as phone manufacturers.
The purpose of it is to make use of every millisecond that your smartphone can spare, not wasting it while you are waiting or busy with something else (and possibly causing battery drain). This will definitely come in handy on smartphones with limited RAM like the Samsung Galaxy series, which do not support enough memory to run background apps at the same time.
The traditional approach to sync was to use an active network connection while a request or action was in progress. This means that some of your apps had to be paused while data was downloaded and uploaded, which takes time and precious memory usage.
With Chrome, all you need is some battery life and a network connection. The improved background sync function requires less energy from your smartphone because it does not require you to be active on it, thereby maximizing battery life without compromising on user experience.
The offline printing function is designed to allow users who are on a limited connection to continue working on their Google documents without having to wait until they’re connected. Offline printing saves all edits and modifications, allowing users to view and share documents when they’re not in an area with an internet connection.
In order to take advantage of it, all you have to do is connect your smartphone or tablet device to Wi-Fi before opening Google Drive, Chrome, or Gmail on your phone. When you go offline, saved documents will begin syncing automatically after reconnecting back online.
The best part is that offline printing works with any document in Google Drive so you can continue editing when you’re offline even if it’s stored in other places like OneDrive or Dropbox.
The smart notifications feature is a great way to keep your phone buzzing when you really need it. With smart notifications, you can fine-tune your device so that calls from important contacts go directly to voicemail, and emails from those who don’t matter are ignored until later.
You won’t have to worry about feeling behind because of all those pesky messages; instead, you can focus on what’s important at that moment and let everyone else catch up with their own responsibilities. Google has worked hard to make sure Chrome users can access useful information seamlessly, even if they’re not at their desks or actively using their computers—and now it’s doing something similar for mobile devices.
Lock screen Features
With Google Chrome, you get to quickly access your favorite sites right from your lock screen. Once installed, a small Chrome icon will appear in your bottom notification bar. Tap on it to open up your Google Chrome app and gain instant access to all of your bookmarks. With today’s release, Chrome users can also install new themes that change how their lock screen displays incoming notifications.
For example, if you add an App Launcher theme from our collection of experimental features when someone sends you a message or reply on WhatsApp or Hangouts, it’ll show up as a colorful floating bubble over whatever else is happening on your phone. It gives you one-tap access to these messages without having to unlock them. Best of all? This update is free!
Google Chrome, Inc. (GOOG) announced a new feature of its popular web browser that will be rolled out to all users over a period of three days. The new tool allows users to take screenshots and edit them before saving them.
The editor allows users to add text and adjust colors and brightness after a screenshot is taken, making it easy to annotate important parts of an image or draw attention to what you’re trying to share with others. This tool also allows people to crop screenshots so that only relevant parts are shared with others. To use these features, open Chrome on your phone and tap More Tools in the bottom right corner. Then tap the Screenshot tool to begin taking pictures.
Better Use of Mobile Data
Want to help save some of that mobile data you’re using every month? The latest update to Chrome on Android has a new feature that does just that. By compressing data, it’s possible to use about half as much data as before! And for users with data caps, that’s always a good thing. To learn more about how Google is helping to save on mobile data in order to make sure it’s not wasted, check out Chrome Browser Now Includes Data Saver Mode on Android.
In short, Chrome uses Google servers to compress data before sending it over your cellular network or Wi-Fi connection. This helps reduce bandwidth consumption by 50 percent (in most cases) and saves money if you have a cap on your data plan.
How Does Data Saver Work? While many browsers have some form of built-in compression already (like Opera Mini), Chrome goes one step further by utilizing servers hosted by Google around the world instead of your own device.
Battery Saving Features
Chrome already does a pretty good job at helping you out with its battery-saving features. The New Tab page, for example, displays thumbnails of your most visited websites, which makes it easier to navigate to them. Chrome also blocks background content from third-party websites in order to save energy and improve browsing speed.
Now, Google is bringing all of these features together into a single package with the new Speed Update. Keep reading to learn more about how to use Speed Update and what it can do for you. For many users, Chrome’s automatic power management system was turned on by default, but now they will have to enable it manually if they want to see any improvements.
According to Google’s official release notes, there are two ways that users can activate Speed Update: either by visiting chrome://flags/#enable-chrome-speed or enabling Battery Saver mode. For now, though, only those who visit Chrome’s Dev channel will be able to take advantage of the new feature.
Chrome on Android has gotten so good that it’s basically unrivaled in speed and efficiency. The final feature, Offers, is even sweeter than its offline capabilities. What are the Offers? Google allows local businesses to create offers, which can be redeemed inside of Chrome. Businesses can add deals or discounts directly to their Webpages that seamlessly sync with your account.
So if you walk by a bakery and see a buy one get one free muffin offer, you can quickly add it to your list of loyalty cards right inside Chrome and grab a muffin later that day at half price without ever leaving your home screen! How cool is that? Now Chrome finally has an app, and you have no excuse to use it anymore.
