What you need to know

  • A Chromium Gerritt finding sees Google eyeing stylus support for Chrome on Android.
  • Many Android phones do not come with a stylus, so a feature like this may largely benefit tablets.
  • Seeing as the feature is in its early days, it’s difficult to tell which way Google will launch the feature on Chrome.

Early findings suggest Google could be working on bringing stylus support for Chrome on Android.

This comes from Chrome Story, who found the sign of stylus support on Chromium Gerritt. A description found within the Chromium Gerritt explains that “if enabled, on an appropriate platform, this feature will allow the user to input text using a stylus.” If they’re interested in this feature, users would have to enable it in settings.
