Google is moving out two new Chrome version settings to save memory and battery power. If you’re on a laptop and your battery level reaches 20%, Chrome will move into Energy Saver mode, which will extend battery life. Memory Saver mode means Chrome will use up to 30% less memory to push for a faster browsing experience.
I currently have 38 tabs open on Google Chrome. If you’re like me, you’ll want to listen to a new update. Over the next few weeks, Google is moving out two Chrome performance settings to save memory and battery power. The update will be available for Windows, macOS, and ChromeOS desktop users with the out of Chrome 108. Here’s what’s arriving and how to make sure you download the updates.
Energy Saver mode
If you’re on a laptop and your battery level gets 20%, Chrome will move into Energy Saver mode, which will extend battery life. It will do this by limiting background action and visual effects for websites that have problematized visuals, like animations and videos.
When the update is live, you’ll see a leaf icon on the top right-hand corner of your browser that will authorize you to activate Energy Saver mode. When your battery life hits that 20% entry, Energy Saver mode will turn on automatically.
Memory Saver mode
Google is also moving out of Memory Saver mode. This is for people who have a bunch of tabs open at the same time. When the Memory Saver mode is on, it prioritizes the tabs you are actually using. Chrome will free up memory from the tabs you aren’t now using, but the inactive tabs will supply for you when you need them.
Google says the new feature represents Chrome will use up to 30% less memory to make for a slicker or quicker browsing experience. When it’s in use, you’ll see an icon on the upper right-hand corner of Chrome showing how much room Memory Saver has freed up.
How to update your Chrome browser
The new update will be accessible globally the in just next few weeks. To make confident you’re on the most up-to-date version of Chrome, follow these steps which are mentioned below.
