Google Chrome for iOS is now letting users edit the look of the browser on their device. This editing ability allows users to move the position of the address bar from the top to the bottom of the page. By letting users do this, Google gives a sense of unison across Safari and Chrome for users of iOS devices.
Some beta testers got to experience or try out this customization feature earlier this year. Now users are getting this customization feature on their Chrome app, and they can use it if they want to. With the roll-out of the iOS 15 version, Apple gave a similar customization ability to its users.
The aim of this upgrade, which first came on the Safari browser from Apple and now on Google Chrome, is to give users the freedom of choice. With this freedom, they can select the area of their screen where they want their address bar to sit. If you are among those iOS users tired of seeing the Chrome address bar at the top of your screen, you can now move it to the bottom.
How to move the address bar on Google Chrome for iOS from the top to bottom part of the interface
If you want to edit the location of the address bar on Google Chrome on your iOS device, there are a few steps to take. The first step involves updating your app via the App Store to make this feature available for usage. Head over to the App Store and install the new update for Google Chrome that is currently rolling out.
Once you’ve installed this update, you can now change the location of the address bar. Simply open the Google Chrome app and as usual the address bar will sit at the top of the interface. Tap and hold down the address bar at the top of the interface and a pop-up will appear.
The options available in the pop-up window are copy link and the new “move address bar to bottom” option. By selecting the new option, you’ll be able to move the location of the address bar to the bottom of the interface. With this change, your Google Chrome for iOS app will bear some design similarities with the Safari app.
Users will also benefit from this change as it’ll make the address bar more accessible. This will be of help to users with short fingers who find it hard to reach the address bar on their 6.8-inch iPhones. Google might also be planning to roll this customization feature out to Android devices in the coming weeks.
