Google Chrome added three new artificial intelligence (AI) features earlier this year. These features are powered by Google’s Gemini AI model and offer specific tools for personalization, tab organization, and writing assistance. These features are currently only available in the US. Now Google has hinted at what some of the upcoming AI features could be. Based on an interview published by the tech giant, it appears that searching and reading web pages may soon be given AI powers.

Wednesday Google published interview with Google Chrome Engineering Director Adriana Porter Felt, who described the process of creating useful AI features that can make using Chrome an easier experience. Felt said: “We’ve been thinking about how to implement AI technology in the browser to make the typical actions you do every day – using tabs, using Search, typing in forms, reading web pages – a little bit easier.” The director added, that the entire Chrome team brainstormed ideas together.

Now, a closer inspection of the quote highlights that two areas using search and web page reading haven’t seen any new features so far. The latest update added AI features for using tabs and typing in forms. It’s possible that the next features the Chrome team builds will be based on these two areas of the browser. Search should be relatively easier given that Google’s Search Generative Experience (SGE) already exists and can be integrated directly at the browser level.

But if the team doesn’t want to go that route, another feature could be AI-powered filters that further organize results based on the topic of the query. For example, a query for the best ice cream flavor might sort results into groups of ice cream shops, YouTube videos, opinion-based blog posts, and more.

Reading web pages is another area where the company could add a new feature. We’ve already seen AI-based web page summarization tools in Microsoft’s Copilot and Samsung’s Galaxy AI. Such a feature could help users quickly understand what a long article on a website is.

However, it should be noted that these features are only speculation based on comments from Chrome’s director of engineering. The developers behind the Google browser may be working on a completely different set of features. We’ll have to wait for Google to officially announce them.
