Google launches Chrome 92 for iOS today with a number of new user-facing features and tweaks.
With this update, Google Chrome now supports full-page screenshots at the system level, just like Safari. After taking a picture with the default key combination for your device and pressing the preview that appears in the lower left corner, you will see a new “Full Page” tab.
From there, you can use the tool to customize, save and share. By comparison, Google is still working on this option for Chrome in Android 12.
chrome: // flags / # enable-fullpage-screenshot
As a security measure, you can lock incognito tabs so that they need a Touch / Face ID or password before they can be opened. This is ideal when sharing devices with others. To enable this feature, go to Settings> Privacy> Lock incognito tabs.
chrome: // flag / # enable-incognito-authentication-ios
Meanwhile, Chrome 92 adjusts settings, history, and bookmarks so that line items do not go edge to edge. Rather, everything is now rounded for a more modern, but less dense look.
From the Tab Switcher you can now hold down a page to share, bookmark or add to the reading list. Similarly, Chrome will ask for confirmation before users close all of their Switcher tabs.
Google is also showing a “new Discover design on the New Tab page” that we have not yet seen. Finally, Chrome 92 for iOS includes “stability and performance improvements.” The desktop update will follow later today.
All of these features are mentioned in the change log for version 92. The update is available via the App Store already, but most of the features are rolled out via a separate update on the server side and do not live immediately.
