Google Chrome Adding New Feature That Will Extend Battery Life Up to 2 Hours
New Google Chrome Feature to Save Battery Life
The idea here is to significantly boost the device’s battery life, be it a laptop or a smartphone, without affecting user experience. This new feature will not affect websites / applications that use WebSockets or long polls to receive messages or updates.
Google has mentioned that the enterprise policy will allow system admins to disable the feature in Google Chrome. However, the enterprise policy will be retired 1 year after the feature ships to stable, making it a permanently active addition then. There is no word on whether this feature will be added to Chromium-based browsers such as Edge, but we’ll report more on this as soon as information becomes available.
Pokdepinion: Anything that can improve battery life is a welcome addition.
