Sometimes the simplest updates can dramatically improve user experiences, and that’s the case with the latest update to Google Chrome on iOS. Although this handy little feature may not seem like much, it has been eagerly anticipated by many.

Google announced on Tuesday that Chrome users on iOS will now be able to choose a new location for the address bar, with options to place it at the bottom or top of the screen, as shown in the image below.
Placing the address bar at the bottom of the screen makes it easier to reach with your thumb when browsing the Internet, rather than having to reach the top of the screen.
To move the search bar, all you have to do is long press on the address bar where the “Move address bar to top” option will pop up. If you want to move it back to the bottom, you can do the same steps.

Safari users have had this ability since 2021, with the introduction of iOS 15. However, to switch between the two address bar positions, users had to go to Settings. This is a little more complicated than Google’s new alternative.
If you’re an Android user, unfortunately, Google shared with a media outlet that it has no immediate plans to bring the feature to Android.
