Google Makes Improvements to Chrome Screenshots and Sharing on Android

Chrome for Android has been somewhat notorious for not really having the same level of advanced features that users might have been expecting from a platform of this type of stature. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Android’s latest version is rectifying a lot of this by rolling out changes that many users had been waiting for, and one of the biggest changes has to do with scrolling screenshots finally coming to Chrome for Android.

While scrolling screenshots were called revolutionary when they first came to Android phones, many users criticized the fact that it was not available on Chrome. Chrome might be one of the most useful places to have such a feature because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing you to capture information within a single image that others can scroll through as well. It seems that Google has finally decided to optimize its most popular app at long last by incorporating this type of screenshot. Users will now be able to take screenshots like this on Chrome’s Android App.

Chrome is also getting another update that can allow you to personalize web pages or screenshots of Chrome that you are trying to share. This update essentially allows you to add animated emojis to your screenshots and links. These are far superior to regular emojis because they actually move around, and they can help you convey a lot more emotion with all things having been considered and taken into account. Your screenshot will be saved as a GIF once you add your favorite animated emojis to them, and while there is only a limited selection available you can still take advantage of this to customize your screenshots quite a bit.

All in all, these updates will be welcomed by the Android community. While Chrome users will be upset that the first update took so long, it’s always better to get something late rather than to never get it at all. Android has progressed a fair bit with its last update, and these new features are a part of Google’s larger overall strategy to start optimizing the performance of its mobile operating system in every way it possibly can. Other updates are likely on the way, and it will be exciting to see what they hold.
