The latest version of Chrome on Android has started rolling out a new price tracking feature to alert you about price drops. SmartDroid reports accepting the new feature in Chrome version 90, however it doesn’t appear to be live for everybody. When initiated, Chrome monitors your open tabs at any price drops, and sends you a notification if any occur.
It very well may be a helpful bit of functionality for the Android application, which isn’t viable with price tracking extensions like Keepa that are accessible for Chrome’s desktop customer. Yet, the requirement that you keep a tab open in order to track its prices seems clunky. Ideally Google tracks down a sleeker solution before the feature gets an widespread rollout.
In the event that your version of Chrome has been updated with the feature, you can turn it on by means of the three dot settings menu in the top right of the tab select screen where it’s listed as “Track prices.” If it’s not appearing, They’s report that you may be able to manually enable it by going to “chrome://flags/#enable-tab-grid-layout” in the address bar, tapping into the drop down menu, and selecting “Enabled Price notifications.” Your browser may should be restarted again before the feature shows up. The strategy doesn’t work for everybody be that as it may, since we couldn’t empower the feature utilizing this technique.
Information on Chrome’s price tracking feature comes only months after Microsoft’s Edge browser added a price comparison tool, which was in no time followed by worked in help for coupon and promotion codes. Firefox additionally tested a price tracking feature back in 2018 called Price Wise; however it doesn’t seem to have at any point gotten an official release since.
