New Google Chrome trick that each iPhone and iPad consumer should know

Chrome users should definitely make sure that their iPhone and iPad have the latest version of this popular web browser installed. Google just released a major update to its iOS app that makes it fully compatible with Apple’s widget system.

This means that you can now search the web right from your home screen by simply tapping the world wide web. And that’s not all, the widget also offers easy access to incognito mode for stealth surfing, as well as searching the web with just your voice and a quick way to intercept QR codes.

Like most iOS 14 widgets, Chrome can be resized to suit individual tastes. That means you can view it as a small square or the service can take up almost the entire home screen.

Besides the search widget that appears on the screen, you can also add the famous dinosaur game to your iPhone.

If you’ve been a long time Google Chrome user, you probably know the hidden Jurassic title. If you don’t, the game will be available whenever you lose your internet connection and find yourself on the “No internet connection” error page.

Tapping on it will open a new browser window with The Dinosaur Game.

Unfortunately, you can’t play The Dinosaur Game in the widget itself, but it’s still a quick way to kill a few minutes on your morning commute.

If you want to try it out, you can easily add the widget. All you have to do is touch an app icon or widget on the home screen until a small menu appears. Tap “Edit Home Screen” and all of your apps will start jiggling. Then tap the Add button in the top left.

Select the Chrome widget from the menu, then swipe left or right to choose from the three different widget sizes. Then tap Add widget.

You should then see Chrome appear between your apps on the main home screen.

Apple’s famous splash screen could see more changes next month when the company holds its annual WWDC developer conference.

“We love bringing our developers together at WWDC each year to learn about our latest technologies and connect them with Apple engineers,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president, global developer relations and corporate and education marketing. “We’re working to make WWDC21 our biggest and best yet, and we’re excited to bring Apple developers new tools to help them create apps that change the way we live, work and play.”
