Chrome’s Screenshot Tool to Get Emoticons & More

Google Chrome for Android is about to get a revamped version of its screenshot tool. The project, named Screenshots for Android V2, is clearly a work-in-progress, but I have screenshots from its first iteration.

Let me start by telling you about the experimental Chrome flag I spotted today:

Screenshots for Android V2: Adds functionality to the share screenshot panel within Chrome Browser on Android.

Google is definitely planning for multiple new features for the screenshot tool. However, for now, there is only one new feature we can test.


With the new flag enabled, we can add emoticons to screenshots.

I remember Google trying out something similar with another Chrome feature. However, I do not remember what that feature was called. Do you?

Doing cool things with screenshots is a popular tech thing. However, I am not sure if a browser needs such functionality. I remember someone complaining about every other app on your phone trying to be a web browser. This is similar.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments section below.

  1. There’s been a flag to test the emoji thing for a while. It’s been under a flag called “lightweight reactions”
