Google Chrome may get quick delete feature on Android: Report
This new feature will provide users with a quick and convenient way to erase their recent browsing history.
Google is reportedly developing a new “Quick Delete” function for its Chrome browser on Android. The feature, discovered by ChromeStory, will enable users to clean up their browser history from the last 15 minutes with just two taps.
The option to remove the browsing history is expected to be accessible through the overflow menu located in the top right corner of the browser. However, it remains unclear if the data being erased will only include browser history or extend to all account activity.
The feature flag was discovered on the Chromium Gerrit for Android, implying that it may only be available on the mobile version of the browser for now. Currently, Chrome for Android and desktop both allow users to view their browsing history arranged by days, with the option to clear data up to the last hour. This new feature will provide users with a quick and convenient way to erase their browsing history, particularly when forgot to enable incognito mode.
Google has already added a similar function to its Android app earlier in the year, enabling users to delete their search and account activity from the last 15 minutes with just one button press, eliminating the need to navigate through settings.
