Google Unlock pairing feature for Chrome to reduce computer battery level and memory space
Pubnews: Google Unlock pairing feature for Chrome to reduce computer battery level and memory space. Google Chrome is a widely used browser across smartphones and laptops due to its excellent performance, user-friendly system, and customizable settings. Moreover, Google regularly updates the browser to address any security concerns that arise. However, some laptop users have reported a decrease in their device’s battery backup or charge when using Google Chrome. To tackle this issue, Google has introduced two new modes for Chrome users, namely ‘Memory Saver’ and ‘Energy Saver.’ These modes are designed to enhance the performance of active tabs and improve the battery life of computers. Users can now take advantage of these special modes to improve their browsing experience and conserve their device’s battery life.
New features of Chrome for all computer users
In December 2022, Google introduced the memory and energy saver modes for Mac, Windows, Linux, and Chromebook users. Now, these features have become available to all computer users who use Chrome as their browser. The Memory Saver and Energy Saver options have been added to the Performance Settings as default features. However, users can easily turn them on or off based on their preferences. These two new features offer more control to users over their browsing experience, allowing them to optimize performance and extend their device’s battery life.
Google Chrome’s ‘Memory Saver’ Mode
Google has recently introduced a new ‘Memory Saver’ feature for Chrome users, which aims to provide smoother performance by clearing the browser’s memory space. With this feature, inactive or unused tabs will be unloaded from memory, allowing for more available memory space. If users have multiple tabs open in the browser and haven’t used them in a while, Chrome will automatically remove them from the computer’s memory. When users decide to reopen those tabs, Chrome will reload and restore them to the browser’s memory. Additionally, users can choose specific websites that they don’t want this mode to affect, giving them more control over their browsing experience. Users can easily turn this feature on or off depending on their needs.

Chrome’s ‘Energy Saver’ mode will save battery backup
To conserve device battery, Google has launched the ‘Energy Saver’ feature for Chrome users. When this mode is turned on, the browser’s background activity will be limited, and certain animations and video frame rates will be disabled. Additionally, the smooth scrolling feature will also be turned off to reduce energy consumption. Chrome users have the option to turn the Energy Saver mode on or off at their convenience. Moreover, users can choose from two options – one of which is to enable the feature automatically when the battery is 20% or less and the computer is unplugged. This will further help users extend their device’s battery life by minimizing energy usage.
How to turn on/off Memory and Energy Saver modes in Chrome?
If you want to control the Memory and Energy Saver modes in Google Chrome, follow the simple steps mentioned below:
- Launch the Chrome browser and open the Settings menu.
- Click on ‘Performance’ from the left sidebar.
- Choose the Memory Saver or Energy Saver Mode options and toggle them on or off based on your preference.
Note that the latest update (version 110) for Chrome is currently being rolled out by Google and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks. However, if you don’t want to wait, you can paste the chrome://flags/#battery-saver-mode-available and chrome://flags/#high-efficiency-mode-available links in the address bar and press enter. This will give you access to the feature before the official release, and you can always modify the settings later.
