Google Chrome is optimized for global media controls
Global media control is a new feature of Google Chrome based on user needs. This feature can mainly control the audio playback of all tabs of the entire browser.
This can prevent users from finding audio content on pages when opening many web pages, and can quickly control the direct pause of playback through global media control.
Although this function has been out for a long time, the function is still not perfect. For example, when operating through the global media control, only the pause can be performed and no more control can be performed.
Especially when the picture-in-picture video is played, fast-forward, fast-rewind, or switch playback cannot be performed, so the Google Chrome development team is now optimizing this item.
In the Google Chrome Canary version, the development team has optimized the global media control. The most important improvement of this update is the new content progress bar.
The newly added progress bar can be used directly to fast forward and rewind, especially for the picture-in-picture function. This function is very easy to use, and there is no need to switch the video back to the original page first.
In the current stable version, if you want to switch the picture-in-picture video, you can only switch back to the original page, so it is more convenient to quickly operate when watching the picture-in-picture video after adding a progress bar.
In addition to the progress bar, this update of Google Chrome also adds a next song button to the global media control button, which can be used to directly switch between the previous episode and the next episode.
Currently, this feature is only tested in the Canary version of Google Chrome and only some users can use it. As for the stable version, users may have to wait a long time.
