Google has announced five major new features coming to its browser on iOS. They aim to make Chrome on iPhone and iPad faster, more secure, and more personalized.

According to a post on Google’s official blog, the next Chrome update on iOS will include the following features:

  • Improved Safe Browsing. This is a feature that Google plans to bring from the desktop version of its browser to mobile devices. It provides enhanced security by protecting users against phishing, malware, and other web-related threats. Chrome will warn its customers about potentially dangerous websites or login/password leaks.
  • Improved autofill. Like Microsoft Authenticator and Edge, Chrome users will be able to use the browser as the default password provider on third-party websites and apps. No more storing passwords in the standard Notes application.
  • A better homepage. Google says improvements to the home page will make it easier to discover relevant content, access recent tabs, and open bookmarks, reading list, history, or frequently visited websites.
  • Improved translation. Google Chrome on iOS will use on-device machine learning for better website translation. The next update will improve language identification so that the browser can detect the required language more accurately and determine whether to translate it.
  • Chrome Stocks. Here’s another feature that will come straight from the Chrome desktop to iOS. The browser will allow its users to use natural language commands to get things done faster, such as “clear browsing data”, “open incognito tab”, or “set Chrome as default browser”. A similar feature recently appeared in Microsoft Edge on desktop.

Google promises to add “even more innovations” to Chrome on iOS in the coming weeks. In the meantime, you can check out the 103 new Chrome features that Google released earlier this week.
