We recently reported that Microsoft has started collaborating on Chromium in an attempt to improve their own Chromium based Edge browser. While Microsoft has made some suggestions like Caret browsing, the ultimate decision to accept the suggestions lies with the Chromium team.
However, it looks like there is one feature that Chromium approved which will be making its way to Chrome soon. According to a new bug (via Techdows) filing on Chromium, Google is working on bringing text suggestions for hardware keyboard to Chrome soon. The feature will allow users to get suggestions as they type which is currently available on Windows 10 and on Microsoft Edge.
Google has just started working on the feature and has set the priority to 2 which suggests that the feature should be available sooner than later. It has already made its way to the latest Chrome Canary and Chromium-based Microsoft Edge version 18.104.22.168.
In the meantime, you can check out our tutorial on how to enable the feature on Windows 10. The feature currently works only with English (US) so you will need to change the language settings to make it work.
