For the past few weeks, we’ve known that Google has been working on bringing the Chrome widget for iOS to Android. Now a month later we find out that there are three new widgets coming to Chrome, and that now we can test via Chrome Canary.
With Chrome Canary 93, the new widget was not functional – it did not display correctly – but with its update to the version 94
How to activate new widgets in Chrome Canary
If you want to try out the three new Chrome widgets on your Android device’s home screen, the first thing you need to do is install the unstable version of Chrome Canary through the Play Store.
Once installed Chrome canary We just have to go to Chrome Flags activate to activate two new experimental functions, which will activate the three new widgets. For this we must write in the address bar Chrome: // flags
The ‘Quick Action Search Widget’ flag activates the two “Chrome search and quick actions” widgets, a version with a size of 5×1 and a larger version with a size of 5×2. This widget offers us a search bar with shortcuts to incognito mode, voice search, Google Lens search (not functional) and in the large widget access to the dinosaur game.
El flag ‘Quick Action Search Widget – Dino Variant’ does not activate the widget ‘Dino chrome’, direct access to its popular game so that we can play even if we have a data connection.
