Google Chrome for Android is working on a new bar UI for autofill for addresses, passwords, and billing info. The autofill service gives users a better way to save time when filling out forms on the internet.
The autofill UI will most likely arrive with chrome version 85 that is set to launch in August.
Currently, when filling out a form that could be auto-filled, you’re presented with something of a dropdown list of options, below the part of the form you’re filling out. By tapping one of these options, the entire form is filled out based on the option you chose. There are a few downsides to this design, as Chrome’s autofill suggestions take up a decent portion of the screen, and there’s no way to only use autofill info for the box you’re typing in.
In recent versions of Chrome Dev and Chrome Canary for Android, as noted by Chrome Story, Google has changed over to a far more slick UI that floats just above your keyboard. In the new autofill bar, you’re offered your various addresses and payment methods in Material Design “chips,” and on the far right, you’re offered quick access to your passwords, addresses, and cards. In the new autofill bar, Chrome offers your various addresses and payment methods in Material Design “chips,” and on the far right, that will give you quick access to your passwords, addresses, and cards.
Inside the menus, you will be able to select one particular portion of your addresses and cards. Thus allowing you to fill out only the box you’re currently typing in. This comes in handy if you need to mix and match portions of your addresses. For instance, while normal shipping address but a using a different name or email address or if Chrome misjudges how to autofill the form correctly.
