This latest feature of Google Chrome has to do with Google's greater investment in online shopping. Google has partnered with e-commerce platforms like Shopify.

Competition with Amazon

Google is really worried about Amazon's hugely soaring advertising business. Amazon has 87% growth in its retail year-over-year generating of $7.9 billion. For that, the addition of this feature is to make it easier for users of Google Chrome to do online shopping activities.And hope the app encourages users to complete their shopping transactions on the Google Chrome platform.

Make It Easier for Google Chrome Team to Do Research

Other changes also aim to make it easier to conduct web research. Google says that it's often users who search for something on its platform. It will also navigate to multiple web pages to find search answers. The new version of Chrome is also experimenting in different ways. To connect users to search results they add a line below when the website address is in Chrome for Android. That will display the rest of your search results so you can navigate to other website pages without the need to press the back button.

Google Chrome Quote Card
