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.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo

Access well-known educational technology tools straight from Google Classroom.

  We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with a new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them.
