Google is expanding its AI capabilities beyond the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro smartphones and bringing them to its Chrome browser. Recently, Google announced the introduction of an “Help Me Write” AI feature for Chrome. Now, it seems that Chrome users will soon be able to create custom AI-generated themes for their browser. This feature was discovered by a Twitter user who examined the code of the latest unreleased Canary version of Chrome.
Similar to the Pixel 8, the feature begins by asking users to choose a theme. However, the themes available for Chrome are more extensive than those offered for Google’s flagship phones. The themes are organized into categories such as Buildings, Food, Everyday Objects, Nature, Space, US Cities and Parks, and more. Each category offers a range of options to choose from. For example, under Buildings, users can select themes based on Airport, Cafe, Castle, Lighthouse, Office, and more. Everyday Objects includes numerous household objects that can be used as themes. The Space category offers themes based on Constellations, Satellites, Moon, Sun, Stars, Solar system, Spaceships, and more.
Of all the categories, the US Cities category seems particularly exciting. It includes options such as Arches National Park, Chicago, the Grand Canyon, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and the Everglades, among others. Once a theme is selected, users can further customize it by choosing specific colors and moods. This allows for the creation of unique themes, such as a steampunk sad Chicago with blue hues or an expressionist romantic airport with red tones.
As the feature is not yet available, we can only speculate on what the AI-generated wallpapers will look like. However, based on the experience with the Pixel 8 Pro, it is expected that Chrome’s version will offer even better options. It typically takes some time for features to go from code to full deployment, so it is likely that we will see a complete rollout of this feature in the coming months.
In conclusion, Google is expanding its AI capabilities to its Chrome browser, allowing users to create custom AI-generated themes. This feature offers a wide range of categories and options for users to choose from, making it possible to create unique and personalized themes for their browser. While the feature is not yet live, it is expected to be available in the near future.
