This morning’s Stable release of Chrome will soon allow access to open tabs across multiple devices in different locations.
The feature has been available in Chrome Beta since early April. It enabled users logged into Chrome to open browser tabs on one device while permitting access to them on separate devices from within the “Other devices” menu on the New Tab page.
“Say you’ve found an awesome recipe on your work computer while… ahem… working hard at the office. But when you get back home, you can’t quite remember if it was two teaspoons of baking soda or two teaspoons of baking powder,” wrote Software Engineers Raz Mathias on the official Google Chrome Blog while detailing the latest feature. “Wouldn’t it be cool if you could pull up the same recipe on your home computer with one click?”
Mathias further explained that tabs are not the only sync-able function when signed into Chrome; the browser also synchronizes bookmarks, apps, extensions, history, themes, and other settings, so users can experience their personal Chrome preferences on every device.
Chrome will update to the latest Stable version sometime within the next few days, while the tab sync option will roll out in the coming weeks. When this occurs, go to the Chrome menu, and then select “Sign in to Chrome” to begin using the new feature.
Chrome for Android Beta will also get the update.
