Google released BETA version of Chrome a few days ago. It came up with many changes to its core features.
Chrome added a flag that adds Google Lens in top of address bar which makes it easy to search Google with images. You just need to tap on Lens icon and upload image to search.
“Search with Lens” flag is removed and it is now integrated with the new flag. Other core changes include removal of native Lazy loading flag of Chrome. It is now removed from Chrome flags, so you cannot use it to enable native lazy loading feature.
Along with all these changes there are many other changes in the core components of Google Chrome for Android. However, there’s one issue users are facing is Discover crashes. It is reported several times on Twitter but looks like Google doesn’t care at all.
Google Chrome’s Discover section shows the latest and most relevant news articles and other content based on our browsing behaviour. It is very helpful to keep ourselves updated with what’s happening around the Globe.
But, the Chrome’s Discover section crashes many time. It shows dots and vertical lines instead of articles. You can see how it looks after crash in the screenshot below.
A lot of people facing the same issue since last update and they headed towards Twitter complaining about the issue. Here are some tweets by users facing the Discover crash issue with Google Chrome for Android.
