New features coming to Google Chrome this fall


Google updates Chrome frequently to bring you new features and security improvements and the latest version will help you get back into your productivity groove. Here’s an overview of new features coming to Chrome this fall.

Keep tabs on your tabs

Ever lost track of tabs on your phone? Over the next few weeks, you’ll see Android’s new grid layout which helps you select tabs more easily and preview thumbnails of the tabs you have open. This new feature is already available for iOS users.


There’s also a new way to group tabs on your Android device which helps you keep track of the tabs that are open. To do this, drag and drop one tab on top of another in the new tab grid layout. After opening one of the grouped tabs, you can easily switch between the tabs in the group using the new tab switcher at the bottom of your screen. The tab grid layout and tab grouping capabilities make it easier than ever to stay organised in Chrome on your Android device


If you have so many tabs open on your laptop that you can’t read the page titles anymore, you can now preview your tabs by hovering over them with your cursor. For now you’ll see the page title and soon you’ll see a thumbnail of the page too.


If you want to save a link from your phone so you can open it later on your laptop or vice versa, you no longer have to send an email to yourself and forget to read it later. Now you can use Chrome to send a tab to another computer, phone or tablet on which you are signed in and have sync enabled.

Help from Google built in

Chrome’s address bar helps you get to your results faster than ever. Now on both desktop and Android, answers will show up inside the address bar where you type your query whether you’re looking for results about sporting events or instant answers about the local weather or translations of a foreign word.


Chrome automatically prompts translation when you need it and you can access translation tools in the Chrome menu or from the address bar on desktop.

Make Chrome yours

Your work environment impacts productivity and your mood. If plants and nature help you relax and unwind, change the background of your new tab page to a floral design. If you draw energy from the colour yellow, use Chrome’s new colour customisation tool to change the colour of your entire browser to the shade that brings you bliss.

Import reminders into Tasks
This import tool will pull your reminders (from Inbox/Gmail, Calendar, or the Assistant) into Tasks.When importing reminders into Tasks, we’ll copy over the title, date, time and recurrence of the reminder. Please note, reminders with locations associated will not be imported. Additionally, this is a one-time import and not a constant sync.
- When you open Tasks on the web or your mobile app, you’ll see a prompt to cop…

Google Vault gives you a chance to retain, hold, search, and export data to support your organization’s retention and eDiscovery needs. This dispatch includes support for new information types with the goal that you can thoroughly oversee your association's information.
What happens when individuals in your association sends confidential messages? Vault can hold, retain, search, and export all confidential mode messages sent by users in your association. Messages are constantly accessible to Vault, notwithstanding when the sender sets a termination date or denies access to private messages.
