Google has recently announced four fresh features for its mobile browser. These features are intended to help you find relevant information while you're searching or browsing the internet. While all four features are aimed at Chrome for Android users, two of them will also function on iPhones.

NOTE: To access these new capabilities, ensure that you have the most up-to-date version of Chrome installed on your device.

In the mobile versions of Chrome, a new feature allows you to view helpful search suggestions related to the webpage you're currently on.

Suppose you're looking through a webpage that discusses different types of yoga and their benefits. When you click on the address bar within Chrome on your iOS or Android device, you'll notice a new segment titled "Related to this page."

In this section, you'll find search suggestions tailored to the content, like queries about advanced yoga techniques, yoga retreats, and the best yoga mat brands. Tapping on any of these suggestions lets you delve deeper into the topic you're exploring.

Find Out What's Hot in Search Trends

In Chrome for Android, a new feature allows you to access popular and trending searches directly from the address bar. When you open a new tab and tap on the address bar, you can scroll down to find the "Trending searches" section at the bottom of the screen.

Within this section, you'll see a list of trending topics. If any of these catch your interest, you can tap on them to instantly view search results related to that topic. Google has also announced that this feature will become available to iPhone users later this year so stay tuned!

Discover Associated Queries Using Touch to Search

For an extended period, Google has provided a feature known as "Touch to Search." This function enables you to press and choose a word or phrase within a webpage. When you do this, a menu shows up offering options such as copying, sharing, and searching for the selected text.

Now, Chrome for Android is introducing an additional enhancement. Toward the bottom of the screen, you'll observe a link associated with the text you've picked. Tapping on this link allows you to access related search results connected to the chosen item.

View Additional Recommendations for a Search

Begin by entering a particular phrase into Chrome's address bar for the search you wish to perform. In previous versions, the browser used to show six suggestions or predictions to help refine your search.

However, this count has now been increased to ten. You can scroll through the list of suggestions and select the one that closely aligns with the topic you're thinking about. This feature, initially available on Android devices, is now being introduced to iOS users as well.
