Chrome Logo 2020

As Chrome 81 has been released to the stable channel, Chrome Beta has been moved to the beta version. It doesn’t come with a lot of visual changes but it has a set of new API’s and features that can enhance the capabilities of web apps.

One of the first major APIs that come with Chrome 81 is the ability for web apps to read and write to NFC tags. This can allow new use cases for these apps like for example, at a museum, a tag could give more information about an exhibit or inventory management at a warehouse. The API is simple to use for developers with a little instruction required to construct and interpret payloads.

Chrome 81 also introduces an update to the WebXR Device API that was first introduced back in Chrome 71, now adding support for augmented reality. Google has also added support for WebXR Hit Test API. The Hit Test API lets developers create immersive experiences for users, letting them place virtual objects in the real world using the camera.

Some of the other changes in the update include:

Position state for media playback
Modernized form controls
Updated CSS properties, specifically image-orientation and Color Adjust.

The “new tab” page, which is displayed by default for blank tabs, currently shows a thumbnail grid of the user’s most-visited websites and provides shortcuts to the user’s installed Web applications. The new version is functionally identical, but the layout and behavior have been tweaked.

Users can page between the application shortcuts and page thumbnails by clicking an arrow or by using the navigation bar at the bottom of the page. They can also create multiple pages for the application icons. The ability to “pin” a thumbnail to the grid is no longer available, but it’s possible to drag a thumbnail to one of the application pages. Right-clicking an application icon allows users to specify whether the app should open in a regular tab, a pinned tab, or in full screen.
