Android Chrome is about to welcome a screenshot editor

To provide a simple, convenient, and direct annotation experience, Google last year introduced a new tag tool for Android 9 Pie. It was initially limited to devices running Android 9, but was quickly informally ported to phones running older Android mobile operating systems. In early September, Google began testing several new features in the official album app, including a fresh tag feature. Now, Google plans to introduce similar features to the Android version of Chrome.

It is reported that the emerging screenshot editor has appeared in the recently submitted merge code on Chromium Gerrit. Known by Tags, Chrome Screenshot Sharing supports editing and sharing in the user interface state.

For now, though, we don’t know the exact editor UI or the features that are included. Predictably, it will be similar to the editing UI in other Google apps.

Interestingly, the feature’s error report also reveals some key information, such as ink labeling of screenshots.

The feature appears to be in its early stages of development and is expected to be available soon in the Chrome Beta test channel. But users of Android Stable Chrome obviously have to wait a long time.
