According to reports, Google is testing its Chrome browser and Chrome operating system music controls, which allow users to control music or video playback in the background. Google is updating the music controls to add a scrubbing bar and album art or thumbnails of songs or videos in the background. Google has not officially confirmed the new feature, but it is expected to be released with the Chrome v.91 update, which may be released at the end of May 2021.

This new feature of Google was released on Reddit by u/Leopeva64-2 and was first discovered by Android Police.According to reports, the new look is hidden behind a logo that can be activated in the following locations chrome: // flags/#global-media-controls-modern-ui. The biggest additions to the music controls are the cleanup bar and background image for music or video. These changes are similar on the Chrome browser and Chrome OS, where users can fix the music player between the phone center and the handbag on the taskbar.

It may be released with Chrome 91, but before that, you can experience it on Chrome Canary.

At the end of last month, Google announced that it would start testing Alliance Joint Learning (FLoC) on its Chrome browser to replace cookies. FLoC is an important part of its Chrome privacy sandbox project. FLoC runs locally and categorizes users’ browsing behavior to group like-minded users together. This will enable people to hide among large groups of people with similar interests and search history.

In addition, the search giant also announced in March that the Chrome 89 update for Android will bring performance enhancements, and will use fewer resources, faster startup speed and 13% faster startup speed than before. Google has adopted “freeze tabs” and claims that tabs from earlier sessions will load faster. At the same time, Google uses PartitionAlloc on Android and 64-bit Windows, which is optimized for latency, space efficiency, and security.
