WhatsApp Will Now Integrate With Google Chrome

Although Whatsapp is one of the most widely used communication tools in the world, it is also one of the few applications with less functionality compared to its competition. However, the Whatsapp development team is still working on some news, so soon we can use the Chrome Custom Tabs.

The Chrome Custom Tabs were announced on Google IO 2015, and allow any application on Android to integrate Google’s browser to avoid leaving the application when a link is needed.

This means that soon we will be able to access the links that open in Chrome or in some other browser without having to leave the application of WhatsApp. And although this new feature has not been made official, some users of the beta have already tested the feature.

Another interesting feature of Chrome Custom Tabs is that to prevent your phone’s RAM from saturating due to the number of open tabs in WhatsApp (plus those already running in the Chrome browser at user’s request), Chrome Will close all those that work under this development once we press the back button.

According to Android World, the new feature of Whatsapp has arrived in a staggered way for some beta users, so if you are enrolled in the program, you may not have access to the Custom Tabs. This situation could change in the next few hours, but thanks to some images filtered by the source, we think that the update could soon fall with this function.
