Google Chrome 90 HTTPS at first

The latest stable release of Google Chrome for Android has added a built-in screenshot option to let user capture webpages with ease.

Back in October last year, I told you Chrome for Android is testing a built-in screenshot option.

Well back then we aren’t sure whether the same feature became part of any stable releases, but now it is introduced in Chrome for Android stable version 91.0.4472.77.

Now, users can take screenshots of webpages in Chrome for Android without using any third-party apps or the system’s default hotkeys for taking screenshot. For example, the simultaneous pressing of the power and one of the volume rockers button.

Let’s let a look at How to access the Chrome for Android Built-In Screenshot option.

How to access the built-in screenshot option in Chrome for Android?

To access the new screenshot option in Chrome for Android, first open a webpage of which you want to take a screenshot.

Next, Open the overlay menu and tap on the share option.

As soon as you tap on the share option a bottom sheet will slide up and there you spot the new Screenshot option.

Now, once you tap on the screenshot option, it takes the screenshot of the part of the web page viewable on the screen. That includes Chrome’s Omnibox too.

As soon as you take the screenshot of a webpage, you can Crop it, write any text, or draw on it.

Once you finish doing that you can share the screenshot or save it to your device or delete it by tapping on the Next option present at the top right corner of the screen.

Google Chrome is consistently integrating some of the most favored features right into its engine to make itself better.

One recent example is the Reading List feature that Chrome has introduced to let users save webpages to read it later. Saving a webpage to read it later is some of the core features of paid services like Pocket and Instapaper.

So, I am trying to explain here is, Google Chrome team is now taking ideas from other applications to add new features.

Do let me know in the comments down below, What’s your opinion about the centralization of popular features present in several popular apps to just one app like Chrome and so.
