Today Google finally launched support for Apple’s Touch Bar on all compatible MacBooks with the release of Google Chrome 60, which launched today and brings the new support to the browser.
This comes after it was launched to developers and beta users on Google Chrome Canary a few months ago. It doesn’t change much since it was first launched on that channel, aside from the addition of a Google logo to the Omnibox and a new tab and bookmark shortcut button.
Sadly, there doesn’t seem to be support for media scrubbing just yet, so you won’t get that outside of Safari just yet.
Here’s what it looks like:
You can also customise the look of the bar by heading over to View and then Customise Touch Bar.
From here you can change the placement of buttons, remove some, and disable typing suggestions.
You can check for the new feature today by hitting the dot menu in the top right corner of Chrome, hovering over the help setting and then selecting About Google Chrome.
From here it will show the version of Chrome that you have and then it will begin to install the new version, then you just need to relaunch Chrome and you’ll have the new version.
Aside from the Touch Bar support, Chrome 60 also brings a total of 40 security fixes that you can read about on the Chrome Security Page. There’s also support for the Payment Request API and a number of other behind-the-scenes updates.
