Tab Syncing Comes to Chrome And Hints Of iOS App


If you are like some of us, you have a section in your bookmarks that you devised to (kind of) be able to sync your tab or websites you want to view on a different device later on. As of today, you will not have to do that anymore. Recently, Google announced on their blog that the stable release channel for Chrome will now have the ability to sync tabs through multiple of devices, starting specifically with Chrome version 19. Google has said in a post…

When you’re signed in to Chrome, your open tabs are synced across all your devices, so you can quickly access them from the “Other devices” menu on the New Tab page. If you’ve got Chrome for Android Beta, you can open the same tab right on your phone. The back and forward buttons will even work, so you can pick up browsing right where you left off.

Google has said that the tabs syncing will be integrated with the standard bookmark/apps/extensions/preferences syncing already in previous versions of Chrome. Although the feature is available today, Google has said that the feature will be gradually rolled out in the coming weeks.

In relation to Google releasing tab syncing to the stable channel of Google Chrome, Business Insider is reporting that a iOS version of Chrome will be coming in the following months. Insider Ben Schacter said that “Google Chrome browser for iOS is coming” and “Apple may already be reviewing Google’s submitted code for a Chrome browser for iOS.” The app is expected to come to the iOS app store around the second quarter of 2012. Hopefully Apple will approve the app.
