Need access to Google Chrome's free experimental features? It's now easier
When you click on the button, it shows you a pop up with toggles for features that were only accessible through the Chrome's dedicated Flags page before.
In case you aren't aware, Google often tests new features in Chrome browser without publicly announcing them. These new features are available through the Flags page and are hidden most of the times. However, the search giant sometimes enables these experimental features automatically for a limited number of users. Now, it looks like Google is working on an easier way to access these unfinished and experimental features as spotted by Android Police. This new feature in Chrome Canary is named as Chrome Labs. This adds a speaker icon next to the address bar on the top.
When you click on the button, it shows you a pop up with toggles for features that were only accessible through the Chrome's dedicated Flags page before. For now, it only includes options for reading list and tap search. But Google is likely to bring more features in the section. In case you change any of the options, let it be even for disabling or enabling the features, it will ask you to restart the browser once again.

You can turn on the Chrome Labs feature from the dedicated Flags page. All you have to do is to visit chrome://flags/#chrome-labs and tap on “enabled”. It is not for sure if Google is showing this feature for all the users around the globe. However, it is said to appear only if you are enrolled in certain server-side rollouts. In addition, the Chrome Labs feature is not yet available on Android and is limited to desktop platforms.
Earlier this month, Google Chrome made it easier for users to sync payment and password information across devices. Google Chrome users on Android will be able access their saved payment information once they log into the browser with their Google account. These payments can be confirmed by entering the credit/debit card's CVC or by biometric security.
