Google Is Adding Four More Features To Chrome On iOS
Google is adding more features to Google Chrome in iOS to get a better Google experience on the iPhone and the iPad. Chrome Action was a recently added feature. On top of that, four more updates are coming to Chrome on iOS.
Seeing an address on the map, easily creating calendar events, getting better translations, and searching with your camera are the new four features that are coming to Google Chrome on iOS.
See an address on the map
When you see an address on Chrome on iOS, Chrome now uses AI to detect addresses on webpages and when you press and hold a detected address, you’ll see the option to view it on a mini–Google Maps right within Chrome. With this feature coming, you’ll no longer be worried about switching apps for specific needs.
Easily create calendar events
Just like the mini-Google Map feature, now iOS users can create Google Calendar events directly in Chrome without having to switch apps or copy the information over manually. Press and hold on a detected date and select the option to add it to your Google Calendar. Chrome will also automatically create and populate the calendar event with important details like time, location, and description.
Get better translations
Google offers that the AI models of their Google Chrome have improved and that they have got better at detecting a webpage’s language and suggesting translations. If you meet with a foreign destination’s website which is not in a language of your knowledge, Google Chrome will automatically offer to translate the website into your preferred language.
Users can also now translate a specific portion of a page using Google Translate right within Google Chrome on their iOS device.
Search with your camera
The Google Lens in Chrome on iOS functions as you long-press an image you find while browsing. Identifying plants, getting homework help and real-time translations of languages are possible with Google Lens by searching the images.
With the new feature, users will be able to use the camera to search for the new pictures taken and the existing images that are already taken on the device. The Google Lens icon will be in Chrome on the iOS address bar.
