Google Chrome 81 is available, here are the new features

Chrome 81 is available. Google has just rolled out the update for its web browser to all users. On the program, this new version contains quite a few novelties. Due to the current context, Google has indeed slowed down the development of new functionalities in order to preserve the stability of its browser. This is why Chrome 82 will not see the light of day, Google preferring to switch directly to Chrome 83 by the middle of May.

Augmented reality, notification badges and reading of NFC tags

Chrome 81 sees a new version of the WebXR API coming. Thanks to it, it is possible to view objects in augmented reality directly from the browser.

By visiting the website of a furniture dealer who would use this API, you will be able to view and move this new sofa or armchair on which you have seen them, directly in your living room using your device’s camera.

Also new, webapps using Chrome can now display notification badges, to indicate, for example, the arrival of new messages, or the presence of new content.

In addition, Chrome 81 launches Web NFC, a technology that will allow web apps that use it to read or write NFC tags. This system could be used, for example, in museums, to allow visitors to obtain more information on a work, read the information contained in a badge, etc.

Finally, on Android, Chrome 81 improves the Media Session API which allows you to navigate to media currently playing from the player displayed in the notification center on Android.
