Google Chrome: The new play-pause button will get you started!

It's sure to have happened to most of you. You have opened many different tabs and one of them seems to have started reproduction of a song or video alone. At this point, you are trying to find out which tab sounds to turn off and it usually takes more time than you want. The good news is that Google has created a new button for Chrome browser , which you can mute in a video without first having to find which one tab took this initiative. At this point, let's say that the button works for the reverse process. 


Essentially this button is suitable for those who usually have a lot of tabs open in Google Chrome and are in a hurry to shut down an annoying sound. Currently the new feature is in the experimental stage, so it may work differently when it is officially released. However you can if you want to see how it works for the time being.

Make the necessary updates.

You must have the latter first Update on your desktop, Chrome 77.

  1. Go to Chrome browser and press the three vertical tweaks, located in the upper right corner.
  2. Then click FAQ and select about Google Chrome. If you get a message that Google Chrome is up to date, skip this step.
  3. At this point make sure you have saved everything you do in Google Chrome, as you must click restart.

  Now you have the latest browser update and you can move on to the next step.

 Turn on the Pause-Play button.

  1. Open the browser and type in the address bar chrome: // flags / 
  2. In the search write Global Media controls.
  3. Then select Enabled.
  4. Once again you need to be sure that you have saved everything you do, as it is time to choose Relaunch nowthat is, restarting now.
  5.  Now you see a button that writes play on the toolbar. Use it to stop or start the sound. 


Check that the function is working.

  1. Open one website, such as YouTube, and select a video or song to play.
  2. To stop it, simply select the new button you created.
  3. Press it again to continue listening to that song or video. It is worth noting that you are given the choice of fast forward and rewind.

 This is the specific function of Google Chrome for the time being. Now it's time to see how it works when it's officially released.
