Chrome for Android now features an in-built screenshot tool

Chrome is definitely the most popular browser on both PC and Android. Even though every smartphone allows you to take screenshots these days, the widely used browser now comes with built-in features.

Google recently added the option to take screenshots in Chrome. The new feature can be accessed via the Share menu. This latest feature of Chrome also offers the option to edit the screenshots you take. The screenshot feature will be handy since you won’t have to switch apps every time you take and edit a screenshot.

This is a big quality of life change that every mobile Chrome user will enjoy. With the Chrome 85 update, Google redesigned the way you share a webpage using the app. The change to the share menu applies to both the address bar and the three-dot menu. Now, the sharing menu shows the page name, the URL of the page along the favicon of the page you are viewing.
