Machine learning has long been used by Google to improve its products, notably Chrome. According to the business, it was able to make the browser safer to use. Google said in March that a new on-device machine learning model can detect 2.5 times more possible phishing assaults and potentially harmful sites than the prior one. Users and their data should be better protected as a result of this.

In addition, the business is addressing vexing demands from specific websites to send you alerts. They’re helpful for sites where you want to get updates, but they’re also annoying. Chrome can already predict when a user will refuse to grant a website access to deliver page alerts and instantly block them. Chrome will feature an ML model in the upcoming version that can handle these predictions on your device.
Google also intends to employ machine learning to improve the Chrome toolbar’s functionality based on what you’re doing at the time. It could emphasise a voice search option if you use it frequently, or it might add a sharing option if you read the news on public transportation and share links to your friends. It’s hardly the largest upgrade in the world, but it can come in helpful for the tasks you do most frequently in specific situations. You’ll also be able to change the toolbar actions manually.
