This week, Google released new updates to its Chrome iOS app that bring new ways to search on Apple devices. Set addresses, create calendar events, translate sites, and search with images right inside Chrome on iOS. Stay up-to-date with recently launched features like Chrome Actions, including the ability to:
See the address on the map
When you see an address in Chrome on iOS, you no longer need to switch apps to find it on a map. Chrome now uses AI to detect addresses on webpages, and when you press and hold on a detected address, you’ll see the option to display it on a miniature Google Maps right inside Chrome.
Easily create calendar events
Chrome users on iOS can now create Google Calendar events directly in Chrome without having to switch apps or manually copy information. Just tap and hold on the detected date, and select the option to add it to your Google Calendar. Chrome will automatically create and populate the calendar event with important details like time, location, and description.
Get better translations
As our AI models improve, Chrome is getting better at detecting the language of a webpage and suggesting translations. Let’s say you’re planning to visit a museum in Italy, but the site is in Italian and you don’t speak the language. Chrome will automatically offer to translate the museum’s website into your preferred language. You can now also translate a specific part of a page using Google Translate right within Chrome on your iOS device.
Search with your camera
With Google Lens, you can search by image to do things like identify plants, get homework help, and translate languages in real time. You can already use Lens in Chrome on iOS by long pressing on an image you find while browsing. And in the coming months, you’ll also be able to use your camera to search for new photos you take and photos in your Camera Roll. Look for the Lens icon in Chrome on the iOS address bar.
