Google Chrome gets Data Saver for video, a new downloads experience and more
If you rely on Google’s browser app to surf the web, talk with friends or watch videos, you’re in luck. Today Google has announced a number of new features and improvements making their way to Chrome that will help you save more data, download things for offline viewing, and discover even more personalized content tailored to your interests.
Chrome's Data Saver now supports video, too
Data Saver will now also optimize HTTP websites to their essentials, which should help web pages load much faster than before.
Google Chrome is also getting a new download feature, which will allow you to simply tap a download button to save a web page, photo or video for offline viewing. You can access the downloads hub by tapping the overflow menu (three dots) on the top-right of your browser. Google also says you don’t need to worry about restarting your download if your connection is dropped, either. If you go offline when Chrome is downloading something, it will immediately start back up once you’re back online.
The new downloads feature is now available in Chrome Beta and will roll out to the stable version of Chrome soon.
Google is also making it easier to find topics that you’re interested in. Now when you open a new tab in Chrome, you’ll see suggestions for websites you might want to visit. Plus, the more you use Chrome, the smarter these suggestions will get overtime.
These changes will be making their way to Chrome soon, so grab the latest version at the Play Store link below to try them out.
