A take a look at model of Google Chrome on iOS now permits you to put the deal with bar on the underside of the display screen, as noticed by MacRumors contributor Steve Moser. It’s a pleasant change that allows you to transfer the deal with bar nearer to your thumb — although notably, it comes two years after Apple moved the URL bar to the underside of Safari by default with iOS 15.

The brand new Chrome function was accessible for me via the model of the app you will get by way of TestFlight. There are two methods to alter the situation of the deal with bar. The simplest is urgent and holding on the bar, which brings up an choice to modify its place. You may as well change the bar’s location from Chrome’s settings. (A colleague within the UK wasn’t capable of finding the setting, so it will not be rolled out for everybody on the TestFlight construct simply but.)

We’ve requested Google if it plans to carry this function to everybody who makes use of Chrome on iOS and if it’s coming to Android, too. The corporate has tried it on Android earlier than: in 2017, it experimented with a option to put the URL bar on the underside in Chrome for Android however later eliminated the function.

I hope this function is rolled out broadly. As cellphone screens get ever-bigger, I believe it is sensible to provide folks the choice to make the deal with bar extra accessible.
