update chrome

After a few weeks of waiting, the update chrome 81 version is now available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and mobile. Its launch was planned for Tuesday, March 17, but had to delay due to the current health emergency. Although it comes with fewer features than expected, we can see significant changes, and we tell you all the news.

Even though Google’s plans have had to change, the stable version of update chrome 81.0.4044.92 has finally released.

Some of the features and updates of chrome that scheduled for this update have been removed and will enable in future versions, but there are others no less appealing such as NFC support that is.

chrome 81 brings with it exciting novelties such as improved support for WebXR or initial support for Web NFC as planned. Still, above all, it is a security update. Since the technology giant claims that it has solved a total of 32 security problems. On the other hand, there is an indication that for the future. They will skip version 82 and go directly to version 83.

With update chrome 81, Google has solved up to 32 security problems that classified as necessary. So we recommend that update your browser to this version so that your security and privacy not altered.

In addition to security patches, new features stand out in chrome 81: it comes with improved support for WebXR. An augmented reality feature that already released in chrome 79, with which you can make use of virtual objects from Google; and standard initial support for Web NFC. A chrome 81 functionality that enables web apps to read and write to NFC tags.

A function called ‘application icon identification’ has also been implemented. That will allow applications and websites to notify users of notifications without interrupting activities. This way, we will receive the news in a less intrusive way than direct notifications from email, social networks. Or messaging applications, where we see unread messages.

Chrome 81 has arrived later and without some features that planned to see the light with this version. Among them, the redesign of the user interface for the Chrome web forms and to eliminate the TLS 1.0 and TLS.1.1 encryptions.

This feature has been postponed for the upcoming Chrome 83 update unless the company changes plans again. Google has announced that it will skip version 82 in full. So the next update will be version 83 of the browser, which will become official in May.

The Google search engine offers animals in augmented reality to put in your videos

If you have an Android phone compatible with Augmented Reality, you can already place a tiger in your living room. Or a panda bear in your garden, only by searching. The Google search engine has released the option to search for animals in augmented reality. To place in your photos or videos.

It is a functionality that Google announced, at last, the I / O 2019 conference. But that it has activated this weekend. To enjoy it, you need an Android smartphone compatible with ARCore Augmented Reality or ARTKit Ready. That is, a mid-range or high-end mobile with the latest version of Android, such as the Pixel 3a, for example.

In reality, the whole process is straightforward to carry out. You have to search for a wild animal in the Google Search engine, using a smartphone-compatible with augmented reality.

Not all animals are available in augmented reality format. Google has shown a tiger, a panda, and a dog. But users have also discovered an eagle, duck, a wolf, and a few more. And surely others will be added later.

A 3D model of the animal will appear in the search results, with the text. ” Meet a life-size (animal name).” And a 3D View button.
When you touch it, the animal will appear in real size in the place you are pointing to with the mobile camera, fully animated. You can record a video or take a photo.

It is not just a curiosity, but it can have practical and educational applications. For example, so that children can see the real size of an animal, placing it next to them.

In the future, Google could apply this function to different objects. Such as furniture or decorative items, to check how they would look in our house. Also, to clothing and other content that makes sense within Android’s augmented reality feature.
