Chrome Beta for android in full screen mode

Google Chrome has been since its launch one the best browsers in the world, be it any platform Windows, Android, Mac or iOS. Google keeps on working on new features and updates all the time under the Google experiments banner. Thanks to renowned app developer Smackel from Reddit, we are able to get our hands on one of the new features found in Google’s flagship browser for Android. The feature which allows a user to use Google Chrome Beta in full screen mode just as you can access it through a normal browser can be downloaded by following a few simple steps:

First, you need to have an Android 4.0+ device and download Chrome Beta (not Chrome for Android).

  • Type “chrome://flags/” in the address bar
  • Enable WebGL
  • Go to the Boids and Buildings Chrome Experiment page
  • Click on the “Launch Experiment” button
  • Click on “Run”
  • You are now on full-screen and can close this page

Keep in mind this is not an official feature just yet, so it’s not perfect. Full screen mode will automatically turn off once the app has been closed but does not if left running in the background which means that you have to manually kill the process every time. If Chrome Beta gets closed, though, you have to follow the last 3 steps again. As mentioned earlier, the app is still in its beta stage and as a result is not yet close to the actual one. Give it a shot at your own risk !
