Chrome for iOS: Seamlessly View Maps and Create Calendar Events
Google is updating Chrome for iOS to improve user convenience. You can now perform everyday tasks without switching between apps.
With this version, you may use Chrome to translate text, create Calendar events, and view Maps addresses. You can find a restaurant’s location, set a reminder to visit, and even understand the menu without leaving the browser.
In addition, a future upgrade will enhance Google Lens functionality. Directly within Chrome, you can search and identify any object using your camera.
Whether it’s a flower or a trendy jacket, you can snap a picture or choose one from your camera roll for instant identification. We will witness the release of this new functionality in the coming months.
While some advanced functions still require dedicated Google apps, such as Maps for driving directions, these additions make Chrome a more versatile app that saves time and battery life compared to using multiple apps simultaneously.
That might make Chrome a more appealing option as the default iPhone browser rather than Safari.
These updates follow Google’s introduction of Chrome Actions, text-based shortcuts for everyday browser tasks. Additionally, Google has been exploring the possibility of using its web engine in Chrome for iOS, depending on Apple’s app policies.
The company is making Chrome a more powerful tool for advanced users.
