Google Chrome for Android is adding a built-in screenshot tool. This is coming almost one year after it launched a custom share menu to replace the default tool.

Per 9to5google, when you share Chrome for Android either via the overflow menu or from the address bar, a bottom sheet slides up. Some Chrome users on Android have started spotting the new screenshot feature, which allows you to capture your entire screen. The bottom bar features tools that allows you to crop, add text, and draw.

A screenshot tool will come in handy for a lot of users who usually or sometimes depend on third-party tools to save certain items on their devices. The tool from what we know, is already rolling out to users, but could take a longer time to roll out to everyone.

A couple of months ago, Google Chrome welcomed one of the most eagerly awaited features-Live Caption. Google announced the launch of the new feature in a blog post. Live Caption will be particularly very useful in that noisy environment where hearing becomes difficult or almost impossible. For those with difficulty in hearing, such a feature comes in handy. It makes it easy to listen to whatever content you are watching. 

You can turn on Live Caption in your Chrome browser on the desktop by going to Settings, click on the Advanced section, then go to the Accessibility section. The feature which is currently available in English is available globally on the latest release of Chrome on Windows, Mac and Linux devices and will be coming soon to ChromeOS. Just to add, Live Caption is already available for any audio or video on your mobile device.

In August 2020, Google Chrome announced a couple of new changes to make the browser even better. All categories of users including Android, desktop and Chromebooks are not left out.  

Tabs on Google Chrome have now been improved to make them load 10 percent faster than before. With that, you can now access pages faster/*-, finish your task on time, and have time for other things.

There is something refreshingly new for all those who use Chrome in their laptop’s tablet mode. In the very near future, you will be able to flip through your tabs with ease. This will make it easier to find the page you are looking for, and browse the web. This new functionality is coming to Chromebooks first. The new touchscreen interface will feature tabs that are larger and more practical to organize. You can also hide them when you no longer need them.
