Google revamps Chrome’s widgets on Android. The change is integrated as part of several novelties for two of its most successful products, the search engine that finds everything and the browser that crosses everything, both for Android and for PC, but since only one of them is already reaching users from all over the world, we focus our attention there, which is also more entertaining and we are on Saturday.
They tell on Google’s blog, or rather they invite, to ‘chromify your Android screen‘… how? Following in the footsteps of other of the most popular applications of the Internet giant that have already received their refresh, with the new Chrome widgets that are being released, and that in fact have been announced and seen for months.
But at last all Android users can enjoy these Chrome widgets, which updates the classics towards a more modern and attractive style, as well as being functional. It’s also a change that the system had been missing, because the current Chrome widgets go back a long way, barely accompanying the aesthetic tweaks that Android has received.
As you can see in the image, the new widgets of Chrome on Android retain the square aspect, but rounding their edges and adding buttons with which to extend the functionality of the same. They are somewhat reminiscent of the revamp that Apple gave in iOS 14, and that can also be found in the new recent versions of the main alternatives to the default Android interface, see Samsung’s One Ui or Xiaomi’s MIUI.
As you can also see in the image, the traditional widget arrives this time along with a new one with quick actions, and another completely unexpected one: none other than the Chrome dinosaur game , the one that appears when you lose your internet connection and the page doesn’t load (it’s in “vivaldi://dino”, but it’s famous for the other thing). Well, the game graduates and gains its own shortcut.
All of these changes will arrive as part of Chrome 98, the update for which is already being rolled out across the world, both for PC and Android, so if you haven’t received it yet, check to see if it’s working for you. waiting, though it shouldn’t take much longer to show up.
