How To Enable New Material Design Refresh On Google Chrome For iOS And Desktop?

Google Chrome is, obviously, one of the most popular browsers out there and Google continuously makes efforts update its design across different platforms. Same sort of efforts were made in the recent months with some new design changes coming to Google Chrome now. The new updated version is now available for public to download and everyone can go for it now.

Whether you use Google Chrome on desktop or iOS, you can now access the updated version. Remember, however, that the changes aren’t yet available to the Android users.

As for the iOS and desktop users, they still have to check out experimental settings for flicking the appropriate switch to turn the option ‘On’. After that, the users will be able to enjoy a more rounded and white appearance on their desktop. However, things will be even more interesting on the iOS. The navigation controls have now been moved to the app’s bottom and that has changed the look of tab page altogether. The app also gets a search button which quickly allows you to access its address bar and is, especially, useful for the iPhone 8 Plus users who don’t have easy access to screen’s top with their thumb.

In addition, you really need to find out first how exactly you can turn this new feature ‘On’ because otherwise you may not be able to use it at all. Below we’ve shared the steps for doing that on both iOS and desktops.
