Search by image and new Chrome for Android gestures

October 1st, 2013

If you use Chrome, you might notice we’re always making small adjustments to simplify and streamline your browsing experience. Starting this week, all Chrome users will be able to search by image and Chrome for Android users get some new gestures to quickly navigate open tabs and access the menu.

Right-click on an image to use it as a Google search 

In Chrome for Android, you’ll be able to:

  • Swipe horizontally across the top toolbar to quickly switch tabs.
  • Drag vertically down from the toolbar to enter into the tab switcher view. 
  • Drag down from the menu to open the menu and select the item you want without having to lift your finger.

Swipe your way between tabs and into the menu

These updates to Chrome for desktop and Android will be rolling out to all users over the next few days, so if you don’t see them yet, you will soon. Happy browsing!
