American multinational technology company Google has launched an upgraded version of its Chrome browser for Android tablets that enables users to easily switch between tabs and efficiently carry out their tasks.

The new update introduces a side-by-side tab design that enables easy swapping and opening of pages on its browser, as well as an auto-scroll back feature that brings users directly to their previous tab.

When tabs become too small, this new feature will get rid of the close button on each one, carefully preventing accidental exits. There is also a new visual tab layout, which organizes tabs in a grid with a preview of each page.

Google’s latest update on its Android tablets also includes a drag-and-drop among apps, which allows users to take an image, text, or link from Chrome and slide it into Gmail, Photos, or other programs.

This new update brings desktop mode to Chrome on Android which gives users an awesome feel to navigate through tabs easily. The revamp also allows users to see large-sized previews of currently open tabs when they swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

Speaking on the company’s latest upgrade on the Android tablet, Chrome’s Product manager Lola Adams said in a statement, “No matter if you prefer using a mouse, a stylus, or your finger, the Chrome on Android experience should be as intuitive and familiar on tablets as on your computer or phone.

“We’re constantly exploring new ways to make it easier and more enjoyable to use Chrome on your Android tablet whether it’s easier navigation with the visual tab grid, switching to desktop mode, or finding the tab quickly,”

The tech company is slowly improving the Android tablet experience through app refreshes and software updates, as it prepares to launch its Pixel tablet next year.

After not paying so much attention to the app experience on Android tablets for a long time, Google appears increasingly focused on upgrading so many things on its browser to give users a quality experience.

The tech company seems to have set out this year to revamp a lot of things on its products, as earlier this year, it introduced Android 12L, which brought an improved interface and multitasking experience to tablets and foldable. At the developer conference Google IO in May, it also promised to finetune over 20 of its apps for the tablet experience.

Instant Messaging platform “WhatsApp” has introduced a new feature that allows users to message themselves.

Prior to this development, WhatsApp users have to use a workaround to message themselves on the platform. 

The method includes using the URL wa.me/ followed by the ten-digit number to send messages, photos and videos to themselves. 

But with the new feature, users can simply start a chat with their number from the contact list. Users will see their contact card as ‘Message Yourself’ at the top of the list.

In October, the feature was reported to be in the beta version ahead of the mass rollout. 

According to WhatsApp,  users will be able to send photos, audio, and videos along with messages to themselves using the feature

For users to enjoy the new feature, they will have to update their WhatsApp application on their smartphones. They can do so either by going to Google Play Store or the Apple App store. 

Users will then tap on the new chat button at the bottom right where they will see a list of all contacts including “message yourself”. They can start to use the feature once they tap on it.

Although a similar feature has been available on WhatsApp rivals Signal, Telegram and Slack, it will however offer millions of people the opportunity to use the “Not Down Feature” on a go. 

Meanwhile, WhatsApp has recently rolled out a new feature which allows users to run quick polls in groups and personal chat. 

However, the feature which was recently announced on the WhatsApp platform a few days back is not yet available for all users. Nonetheless, Investors King understands that it will make interaction on the platform more interesting.
