Google Chrome Gains New Badge Feature on Menu Items
Chrome ‘New’ Badge Feature

The tech giant Google is now working on bringing a new feature called “New” badge on menu items. This feature is similar to the “N” badge on mobile applications or the “New” badge on newly installed programs and apps in the Start Menu of Windows 10. This new feature helps desktop Chrome users to learn about newly added features to the desktop version of the Chrome browser.

The “New” badge on menu items feature is currently in the pipeline and yet not available publicly. This feature is hidden behind a flag and available in the stable version of Google Chrome 85 or higher version through the flag. 

As of now, this feature is disabled by default and if you’re interested in using it, you can enable it manually.  After enabling it, you can easily identify and access newly added features and options in the chrome browser just like the badge feature in mobile apps and Windows 10. 

The following screenshot shows the “New” badge on the menu items live in action on the “Add tab to new group” in the tab menu in Chrome.
