Final yr, Google swapped Chrome customized tabs for an in-app browser within the Google app for Android. Whereas the brand new browser was flashier, it was form of a downgrade because it lacked certain features. It looks as if Google is engaged on bettering the expertise with a backside bar within the newest Android beta.
The addition of the underside bar makes it simpler to navigate on at this time’s large-screen telephones. It introduces the flexibility to navigate forwards and backwards with devoted buttons.
The share button additionally sits on this bar, and clicking it opens the usual Android share sheet. We additionally get an overflow menu that provides entry to the next choices: refresh, open in Chrome (or whichever is your default browser), discover in web page, browser settings, and ship suggestions. Sadly, the handle bar stays on the high.
Other than the brand new backside bar, the in-app browser would not look any completely different; there is a shut button on the top-left and a bookmark button on the top-right.
The brand new backside bar is seemingly rolling out with the most recent Google app beta (v11.43) — you can download it from APK Mirror. None of my units with the replace present the brand new format simply but, so it may be some time earlier than it rolls out to everybody on the beta channel.
