Chrome’s new tab page may soon show your favorite Google Photos memories
Google doesn’t want you to forget your glorious past
Google is increasingly integrating its services with Chrome’s new tab page to increase visibility and usefulness. After rolling out Drive file shortcuts, the company is now experimenting with showing your Google Photos memories when opening a new tab.
As spotted by ChromeStory, there is a new NTP Photos Module flag in the latest Canary version of Chrome. Turning it on allows the browser to display your Google Photos memories on a new tab page. The first time, you will need to accept the prompt to allow the browser to display your old and forgotten photos. After that, Chrome will automatically extract your memories from the account you’re currently signed in to.
This indicator to enable the Photos module must also be present in the Dev and Beta versions of Chrome for Mac, Linux, Windows and Chrome OS.
Google Photos’ Memories feature is very appealing, but some people tend to miss the photos it resurfaces if they don’t frequently open the Photos app. On the flip side, Chrome’s new tab page is something you see all the time, so this cross-integration between Chrome and Photos could be a good way to add some nostalgia to your day.
