1. Smart Search Suggestions
Navigating the Chrome browser on iOS and Android has become more intuitive with relevant search suggestions now displayed when clicking on the address bar. For instance, if you’re reading about Japan for an upcoming trip, tapping the address bar will reveal a new section titled "Related to this page" with search prompts such as local eateries or tourist attractions in Japan.
2. Trending Search Topics
Chrome users on Android can now observe popular Google search queries directly within the address bar. Upon opening a new tab, tapping the address bar and scrolling down will unveil trending searches. This feature will also be available for Chrome on iOS later in the year.
3. Enhanced Touch to Search
Initially introduced for Android users, Touch to Search is now more versatile. When users highlight a word or phrase on a webpage and activate Touch to Search, a carousel of associated search queries will appear. This streamlined feature facilitates finding additional information on the selected topic.
4. Expanded Search Suggestions
To expedite searches, Google has increased the number of displayed suggestions from six to ten when typing in the Chrome address bar on mobile. The suggestions, ranked by relevance, can be accessed by scrolling. While already available on Android, this enhancement has now extended to iOS users.
The updates are gradually rolling out and will be accessible to all users in the coming days.
