The Google Chrome team is working on a feature that will use iOS 12’s “Shortcuts” feature. When launched, this will enable you to say “open most visited sites” and Siri should open Chrome for you.
Is it going to launch Chrome and show the new tab page with the most visited sites? Or, is the team working on something more interesting? We will have to wait for few more weeks at the least, to figure that out.
So, here is what I found today:

Now, for those of you who do not know what iOS shortcuts are, here is a quick video explaining this feature:
So, what do you think? Would you like to have such a feature on your Android phone too, perhaps working with the Assistant? Let me know in comments!
