Google Chrome allegedly develops a feature called “Self Share” as a new way to send tabs from an Android mobile to a desktop. A code change request has been detected at the hint of the upcoming feature, enabling users to print links to webpages from a smartphone to their computer, as they are logged in from the same Google Account. In addition, another report has suggested that Chrome for Android will soon begin to hide media notifications in Incognito Mode. Meanwhile, Google has announced that Chromes Image-in-Picture (PiP) mode now lives for all users on Windows, MacOS and Linux.
People in ChromeStory noted code change request that reads as “Add new function flag for self share prototype.” The flag’s name and description of the code says “Self-Sharing” and “Allows users to send tabs from Android devices so that other synced computers can open same.” The function is also described in an informal communication between developers that are connected to changelog as “I put together a quick function flag to begin working with a prototype to share URLs between mobile and desktop chambers.”
Coming to media notification changes, from now on they are not hidden when using an incognito tab in Chrome for Android. However, according to an XDA Developer’s report, a new commitment says that it can change soon. The commitment has been merged, but it is only available on the Google Chrome channel, but is expected to be rolled out in future versions.
Current media content management messages that come with the Incognito tab show information such as video / audio title, URL, artist / channel, background image, and more. When the changes are alive, the messages from Incognito-windows are reportedly not having such detailed information.
Meanwhile, Google Chrome Developer Francois Beaufort announced via a post on Google+ that the image-in-picture mode now live on Chrome for Windows, MacOS and Linux. With this feature, users can watch videos in a floating window, on top of other windows. This means, in essence, that you can now use other programs while watching a video. A new Chrome extension uses Chrome-in image on all videos on the Internet. If you are a developer, Google has provided information about how to implement the feature on the Google Developers website. The feature will soon come to Android and Chrome OS, noted Google.
