Google is testing a new feature in Chrome that makes it easier for users to manage web activities. The new feature, Memories, is currently available on Chrome Canary.
Memories capture a Chrome user’s web activity in one place, Techdows reported. Featuring things like pages, bookmarks, tab groups, and Chrome history, a search bar allows users to easily navigate old web activities.
Although the Memories feature in Chrome is new, its function may sound familiar. Google provides access to similar information by going to your Google Account and clicking Web and App Activity. The Memories setting simply makes managing your information much easier because it’s much easier to find.
Chrome’s Memories feature is only available on the Canary channel and needs to be activated manually. Here’s how to do it:
- Open Chrome Canary
- Type chrome: // flags in the address line
- Type Memories in the search box
- Enable the feature
Google’s Chrome team recently launched version 90, introducing several new features to the browser in recent weeks. The browser has also received several new features aimed at improving user productivity. One of them will allow Chrome to freeze collapsed tab groups (and hidden tabs), allowing the browser to consume fewer resources.
Chrome, meanwhile, is gaining new PDF reader features. Chrome’s new “link to highlight” feature, which comes with the ability to share specific text on a webpage, allows users to highlight text and share a webpage.
