‘Chrome OS gets function to open the latest browser tab on Android’




Chrome OS seems to get a function to open the last opened tab on an Android smartphone. The function is intended for users to read on a web page when they switch devices.

Continue reading in Chrome The function is called ‘Continue reading in Chrome’, reports XDA-Developers and should be in the Canary-test version of Chrome OS from Thursday. This is evident from the merge of the commit that builds the function.

When opening the Chromebook, the software will allow you to open the latest browser tab from an Android device with the same Google Account. This only happens if the user has opened that tab somewhere in the past two hours, according to the source code. There are also options to make the last tab searchable and put in the Chrome OS launcher.

The feature seems to target people using a Chromebook and Android device and switching between them for the same work. Now the history of other devices can be seen in the browser, but it does not open the last opened tab by default.
