Chrome for iOS Can Now Show Maps, Translations, and many More

Chrome has been refining itself for quite some time now. With the ability to easily make Chrome your default browser on iOS, the search engine has gained severe momentum on iPhone. If you are one of those users who rely on Google Chrome as your third-party web browser on iOS, this news is for you as here’s a new useful update! Continue reading below to know more.

Chrome for iOS Just Got More Functional!

As part of version 114.0.5735.124, Google Chrome has gained the ability to let you access a plethora of Google services, baked right within the app without even leaving it. This means that apart from being a third-party browser, Chrome is venturing towards being a “power tool” for iOS users.

This means that now, when you click on an address, Chrome will not redirect you to Google Maps. When you want to set a Calendar reminder, you won’t have to specifically do so via the Google Calendar app. You can also gain real-time text translation within the Chrome app itself. This makes the Google Chrome app much more enticing for iOS users. You are no longer needed to carry the baggage of other Google apps within your iPhone just to use the Google browser.

Google will also add Lens to its list of integrated apps in the “coming months.” You will then be able to use your iPhone camera to look up objects, translate signboards, and much more. However, do note that these “ease of accessibility” features are limited in nature. You will still need to individually visit these apps for advanced options. For example, to use the driving mode you need to visit the Google Maps app, to add specific events to your calendar you need the Calendar app, and so on.

With the present integration, your life should become better and drain your iPhone battery lesser. This is way better than running multiple apps at once in the background,

Roomba j7 Series Robot Vacuum and Mop Launched In India

Puresight Systems, the exclusive seller of iRobot products, has officially introduced the Roomba Combo j7 series in India. The series consists of the Combo j7 and the Combo j7+ and is touted as the “world’s most advanced robot vacuum and mop,” which is 100% hands-free and is powered by the next-gen iRobot OS. Keep reading to know more.

Roomba Combo j7 Series: Specs and Features

The key USP of the Roomba Combo j7 series is that it can vacuum and mop at the same time. This means that the robot vacuum can complete two tasks at one go without any human intervention. The j7 and j7+ are designed to first target rugs and carpets first before venturing into cleaning hard surfaces.

It is able to achieve this via a flurry of sensors that make it easy for the robot to recognize different floor types. To avoid wet trails, the sensors work with fully retractable mop arms to raise the wet pad on top of the robot once its purpose is fulfilled. The j7 series robot’s PrecisionVision Navigation system allows it to take advantage of the onboard sensors to detect obstacles and create a 3D map of the target area.

What makes the Combo j7 series truly hands-free is its automatic garbage collection and cleaning system. For the cleaning part, combined with the mopping facility, the Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal system ensures automatic vacuuming. The Clean Base of the j7+ can collect and hold dust and debris for up to 60 days.

The iRobot OS makes all of this possible via advanced software support and integration. The robot can understand 600 voice commands and can be easily paired with smart assistants like Alexa and Google. With the ability to identify 80 different common household objects, the j7 series can easily avoid objects you want.

You can even skip rooms during an active cleaning session just by using the skip button on the iRobot Home app. With that being said, the iRobot Home app is made iOS compatible with a plethora of Siri shortcuts. For example, you can save cleaning layouts under favorites, schedule cleanings, set reminders, and much more.

Additionally, the j7+ is committed to the privacy and security of users and can seamlessly connect to users’ smartphones via the iRobot Home app giving you full control at your fingertips.

Price and Availability

The Roomba Combo j7 is priced at Rs 69,990 while the Roomba Combo j7+ retails at Rs 89,990. The j7 variant will be available for purchase starting today via the irobot website while the j7+ will be made available via select retail outlets.
