Search giant Google has put the RSS feature to the test in the Android version of the Chrome browser to make it practical for users to follow their favorite sites.
Google developers have started testing the new Tracking feature in the Chrome browser for Android devices. The new feature builds on the web standard RSS, which was the backbone of many web content aggregation tools in the past.
It will come to stable version soon
This tool will allow users to subscribe to site updates via the browser menu, and the content on this subscription will be displayed as cards in a separate tab. The offered functionality will also help users quickly learn about new posts from their favorite sites.
It’s hard to say why Google decided to turn to RSS after all these years, but most likely there are certain reasons for that. The new functionality is currently available to a limited group of users. It is not yet clear when exactly this tool will be available to all users with the stable version of the browser.
