In this article you will learn how to enable Google Chrome Flags to Test Beta Features. The Google Chrome browser has many valuable features, but many are disabled by default. Chrome “flags” can enable experimental and beta features if you know where to find them. It’s surprisingly simple.
Google frequently hides features behind flags until they are ready for use. These features occasionally make it into stable releases, but they can also vanish without a trace. Unfortunately, it is the nature of working with experimental and beta features.
Flags are also available for various platforms. There are, for example, different flags for Chrome on Android, Chrome on Windows, and so on. Enabling these flags is a very simple process.
Warning: For a reason, these features are not available to everyone. They may not function correctly and may harm the performance of your browser. At your own risk, enable flags.
How to Enable Google Chrome Flags
To begin, launch the Chrome browser on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Chrome flags are available on nearly every platform, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iPhone, iPad, and Android.
Then, in the address bar, type chrome://flags and press enter.
You are now on the “Experimental” page. There are two columns: Available and Unavailable.
You can either scroll through the “Available” flags list or search for a specific flag.
When you find a flag, you want to enable, click the drop-down menu (which will usually say “Default.”) and select “Enabled.”
After enabling a flag, you must restart the browser for the change to take effect. Before relaunching, you can allow multiple flags. When you’re finished, select the blue “Relaunch” button.
That’s the only thing there is to it. You’ve stepped into a larger realm of browser customization. Now get out there and test out some of the potentially upcoming Chrome features! Also check How to Enable Chrome Flags, 10 Best Flags To Improve Your Browsing Experience.
