Chrome is Testing a New Guided Method for ‘What’s new’

Google recently added a ‘What’s new’ page to Chrome detailing all the new features in a release. The next iteration of this page will have a ‘guided’ flow.

Allow me to explain.

Guided ‘What’s New’

Have you noticed little popups on your phone screen showing you how to use an app when you launch it for the first time? They are guided flows showing you the basics of how to use an app.

There are software tools that help create guided flows for apps and websites. Google is testing something similar for the next version of ‘What’s New’.

Instead of simply telling you about a new feature, the new design will teach you how to use it.

The new design is still a work-in-progress. However, here is an early look.

I clicked Tab Groups and Chrome started teaching me how to use tag groups.

The next time you see a Google Chrome update, it will contain guided learning along with texts and images like usual.

What do you think about this new approach to release notes? Let me know in the comments section below.
