Google has introduced new features such as partial custom tabs and auto-filling passwords to make in-app browsing on its mobile operating system smoother.
Google disclosed this information in a blog post on February 15, 2023.
Partial custom tabs give developers more control over the initial launch height of tabs, allowing users to interact with both their app and the in-app browser simultaneously. Additionally, auto-filling passwords allows users to enter saved details like addresses without leaving the app or having a login popup appear. Google advocates Chrome Custom Tabs over WebView as it offers many additional features that can help improve the user experience within apps. This is useful if your app has an in-app browser login popup.
Google advocates Chrome Custom Tabs over WebView, claiming that it offers more features. “By adding a web experience to your Android app, you risk the user simply launching a browser from your app, leaving your app, and abandoning their session.” With WebView, you can build your own in-app browser. but it can be a complex process with high maintenance overhead,” Google said in a blog post.
These new features from Google should have a positive effect on how people use apps across different devices, as they provide an easier way for them to navigate between different pages and websites while staying within an application environment instead of being directed away from it entirely.
