Google has announced five major feature improvements to Chrome for iOS that will focus on making Chrome on iPhone and iPad faster, more secure, and more personalized.
According to a post on the official Google blog, the next update to Chrome for iOS will include the following features.
Enhanced Secure Browsing: This is a feature that Google plans to bring to mobile devices with the desktop version of its browser. It provides greater security by protecting users from phishing, malware and other Web-related threats. Chrome will warn users of potentially harmful websites or login/password compromises.
Improved autofill: Like Microsoft Authenticator and Edge, Chrome users will be able to use the browser as the default password provider for websites and third-party applications.
Better homepage: Google says improvements to the homepage will make it easier to discover relevant content, access recent tabs, open bookmarks, reading lists, history, or frequently visited websites.
Enhanced translation: Chrome for iOS will leverage on-device machine learning to enable better website translation. An upcoming update will improve language recognition so the browser can more accurately detect the desired language and determine if it needs to translate it.
Chrome Actions: Another feature that has been brought down from desktop Chrome to mobile Chrome Actions will allow users to use natural language commands to get things done faster, such as “clear browsing data,” “open incognito tabs ” or “Set Chrome as default browser. A similar feature is already available in the desktop version of Microsoft Edge.
Chrome version 103 was recently released for iOS with improvements like privacy and new tabs, and Google promises to add “more innovation” to Chrome for iOS in the coming weeks.
