Once it’s widely available and adopted, smartphones owners could simply fire up Google Chrome and tap to get audio guides from museum exhibits, for example. In theory, this could enable websites to authenticate door locks that usually require a badge with NFC. You could also sync online services, like Spotify, with NFC-enabled speaker systems to play music throughout the home.
That should free-up some storage on your handset as they’ll be no more need to download specific apps for a single trip or activity.
Chrome is designed to update automatically. However, if you’d like to make sure you’re one of the first to get your hands on the new features, head to your computer, launch Chrome and in the top-right corner, tap on the three-dots. Click Update Google Chrome. If you can’t find this button, you’re already on the latest version.
On mobile, you’ll need to head to the Google Play Store to download the latest version of the app.
