Google is rolling out a new update for Chrome on Android that adds a “Sync and Google services” section to the web browser. The addition was first announced by Google back in March as a way to consolidate all the Google related browsing preferences.

Google has also added Google avatar to the New Tab page which serves as a shortcut to access the “Sync and Google services” inside the Settings menu. The Sync and Google services menu has a bunch of options that you can enable or disable as per your preferences along with an option to manage individual settings like Bookmarks and Passwords under “Manage Sync”. You can also select Encryption and decide if you want to encrypt the data using your Google Password or if you want to use a dedicate passphrase.

The new changes are rolling out to Google Chrome Android users via a server-side update with Chrome 76.
