Google Rolls Out Centralized Media Control Button To Chrome Users

              Google rolls out a centralized media control button to Chrome users: In the month of July, Google initially started testing a pause/play button in Chrome in order to let users control media in Chrome deprived of having to navigate to a particular tab. At the time, the button was only accessible in Chromium test builds, but now at the same time, Google has started rolling it out to all Chrome users.

One of the most frustrating features of modern web browsing is that it is quite easy to forget which tabs have videos or else the songs playing. This on another hand also makes it difficult to pause your media quickly when you have to answer a call or else to pay close attention to an email. The latest Chrome update is now going to help you to fix that by adding a new button that gathers all the media by playing in your browser as well as displays play, pause along with skip buttons for each one.

You can find the button located in the Chrome toolbar as well as sports design with a total of three lines as well as a music note. Clicking the button is then going to make all media running in Chrome tabs seems in drop-down boxes for individual playback options.

In addition to that, the YouTube videos also have preview images in order to help you identify what video you’re pausing or else playing. The button, on the other hand, is accessible in Chrome version 79.

Today, with the help of this article we are going to share the method, login process and so on about this latest update, so without wasting any time let’s get started….

What’s New For Chrome Users?

A button with three lines as well as a music note now sits on the toolbar. All you have to do is to simply click that and all of your media is going to appear to drop down boxes. At the same time, controls for YouTube videos even have preview images so that it can be easy for you to tell what you’re pausing or else playing at a glance.

On the other hand, it would be nice if music, as well as podcasts, had the similar visual touch, and a play bar scrubber would be useful, as well. If there is an audio file or else video that you don’t need to control, you can then hit the X button that is located in the upper right corner of the box and it is going to disappear up till you reload the tab that it lives on. The new feature is very much similar to the play controls in Android’s notification shade as well as in the Chrome OS notification center.

In addition to that, this feature was earlier available in Chromium test builds, but at the same time, Google also released it today as part of Chrome version 79. Not everyone has the feature yet, so it also seems like the rollout is still in progress.
