Google released a new Chrome Beta update bumping the version number to 69.0.3497.41. It adds a new feature, which shows a button to fill in a text box with your credentials. There is a key icon shown above the keyboard when you type. The settings also got a revamp. Now, the font is smaller and there are no dividers to be seen.
As some of you already know, Material Design 2 is the successor to the original Material Design - a design language introduced by Google in 2014 in parallel with the debut of Android 5.0 Lollipop. The 2nd iteration is still in the works, but you can test and see how it looks on Chrome Beta right now. To achieve that, you will need to enable close to a dozen flags, but we promise - it is worth the effort. You can open this article on your Android device and long click on the hyperlinks with # signs to copy the direct flag addresses and enable them directly, without the need to search for every single one of them.
