However, Google suddenly decided to take Chrome‘s search history to the next level by introducing “Journeys”, according to a report from The Sun.

The new Journeys feature on Chrome helps its users go back to what they’ve searched for over the years without scrolling through a long chronological list.

Browsing through your previous searches now comes with an option that narrows down your entire history to various topics.

In addition to that, if you ever search for a single topic in your search history, it will provide other relevant queries that might also be useful to you.

Google Chrome Journeys: how to get

According to a report from 9to5Google, Chrome has been testing the “Journeys” feature as an experimental feature on Chrome Canary on desktop since October 1, 2021.

On February 10, Google is already rolling out its latest tool for Chrome to the stable version of the web browser.

If Journeys is still not found on your Chrome, it should be there within the next few days or weeks. The tech giant says it is already rolling out the new feature. So, expect it to hit your web browser soon.
