How to Enable Chrome’s New Material Design

It has been reported that Google, in recent months, is working on its product Chrome for desktop and mobile services. It has been said that the configuration of the browser is a way to a more stable browser. Though the version called Chrome 68 was released earlier recently, the new material Designs are not included in update changes. Both desktop and iOS got their new looks. Mobile version of iOS has a more radical redesign, but the desktop has a much rounder and whiter appearance.

Chrome Material Design

Google is looking forward to first-time “navigation controls at the bottom” of the screen and rebuilding the tab pages to make it more convenient to use. Navigation refers to the buttons to go back and forth, and they will be present at the bottom of the display. The corporation is providing the new search option which is a better and quicker way to get to the address bar. It makes navigating Chrome a lot easier while using on the phone.

More rounded tabs are not available in Chrome yet, as Google hasn’t enabled them for public use. Though, the new version of Chrome appeared in April, still the search giant has not released the new material design of the more stable version.

As the material design is yet to be released on Desktop and iOS, people cannot wait to get it on their systems. The future of Google, can be said, is now changing as the company is moving forward with the idea of getting new looks. It has already released a video on YouTube unveiling the new design of Google. Now, its product went under construction to get a renovated design. It is exciting to see that Google corporation is also moving ahead with the concerns to give their products, a new look.

There is a relaxed approach through which everyone can get access to enable the Material Design. The process slightly differs in Chrome Desktop and Chrome iOS.

For the users of Chrome Desktop

  • First, you should go to the address bar of the web browser.
  • Type “chrome://flags/#top-chrome-md” and press Enter from your keyboard.
  • In the section saying “UI Layout for the browser’s top chrome” change the setting from “Default’ to ‘Refresh’ and restart the software.

For the users of Chrome iOS

  • First, go to the address bar.
  • Type “chrome://flags/#top-chrome-md” and tap Go.
  • In “UI Refresh Phase 1” section, select “Enabled” and restart Chrome.

The changes are not evident in the stable version of Chrome. But the iOS version is more vibrant than before. Google is definitely making the step to redesign their products, but we have to wait to use the newly Designed product.
