Control media playback in your Google Chrome web browser without having to search for the tab in which they are played.
Google has just updated its web browser Chrome to version 77. This update introduces a new feature within its flags, making it easier to control the playback of media played in your tabs.
These experimental Chrome functions, disabled by default, can be officially integrated into future stable versions, but also disappear without warning from one update to the next.
First, check your browser version. Deploy the main Chrome menu, then in Help, click About Google Chrome. The browser displays the version number and if it is not up to date, automatically downloads and installs the latest version.
If the update is not applied, it is also possible to force its installation by downloading the dedicated installer.
