Google is preparing to add a new page called chrome://games on Desktop.

“Top Sites” page will likely feature a “Games” section on Chrome for Android.

Google is also working on a browser version of the classic Snake game.

We have all been there - playing the Chrome Dino game to keep the mind distracted from the frustrating reality of not having an active internet connection. Now, Google could soon add options for the users to choose games from. The company appears to be working on a set of changes for Chrome under the codename “Joy,” which will add a 'Games Hub' to Chrome for both desktop and Android. 

Google is preparing to add a new page, chrome://games on desktop. One the other hand the “Top Sites” page will likely feature a “Games” section on Android. The latest findings come from Chrome Story that says both of these sections could have a curated list of games built for the browser. 

Chrome Story further discovered that Google is working on a browser version of the classic Snake game, which is said to be hosted at chrome://snake when it is ready, similar to the way users can access the Dino game at chrome://dino even when the internet connection is not available. Moreover, a reference to Proxx, a web-based game, was also found.

It is not completely clear what is Google planning to do with the Games Hub. As of now, the lastest change made in the Incongito Mode of Chrome. 

Chrome now makes it harder for publications, which rely on subscriptions, to detect if a user is using the Incognito Mode for browsing their websites. These websites use FileSystem API loophole to detect whether a person is browsing in Incognito Mode and once detected, they provide users a different experience, that is, they are still able to limit the “free articles.”

Further, starting with the Chrome 76, the Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) checks for updates daily instead of every three days before. You can read more about the changes  here.
