Google Chrome Rolls Out Actions Feature for Android Users

The 100th version of the Google Chrome web browser brought an interesting new feature into the mix, one that would help simplify matters for users that want to get things done. This feature is called the Actions feature, and it can truly help people to accomplish tasks easily by typing the actions out in the address bar. For example, if a user wants to open an incognito tab, they can type this out in the Omnibox.

This update is useful because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up saving users a few steps while performing necessary actions, such as opening incognito tab, clearing history etc., and most users received the update quite favorable with all things having been considered and taken into account. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Chrome for Android is now getting this feature as well.

The Actions feature has been a part of Chrome since its 87th version release, but in spite of the fact that this is the case many of the more popular actions that people can perform now weren’t included in that update. Now, Google has not only expanded available actions dramatically, it has also made it available to Android users which is most certainly important for their future business strategies that rely on higher levels of mobile usage.

In order to activate this feature, Android users need to go to the chrome://flags section and select the pedal labeled as “Omnibox Pedals Android Batch 1”. Enabling this feature will allow you to avail it, which can cut down action performance times across the board and make Chrome a much more efficient web browser to use.

Chrome has had its work cut out for it ever since it started facing renewed pressure and competition from the Microsoft Edge browser. This has sparked a phenomenon that some are calling the Browser Wars, and the only clear winners in the end would be users that get new and improved features that can make their work easier to get done.
