Google brings fingerprints to the Chrome browser for Android

There is still no information as to whether other biometric security forms, such as Windows Hello or Touch ID scanners in older iOS devices, will receive the update.

The latest beta version of Google Chrome is adding a handy update: support for fingerprint sensors on both Android and Mac devices, which will allow developers to use biometrics as an additional layer of security.
Updating will allow Chrome to utilize existing Android fingerprint sensors and MacBook Pro Touch ID sensors for its scans.

The Chrome 70 beta has some other interesting features: Bluetooth Web Support is coming to Windows 10, giving Chrome the ability to communicate with other nearby Bluetooth devices. (Other versions of Chrome already had features.)

Google is also presenting a new experimental formatting API that will allow users to identify faces, barcodes, and text in images, including QR code scanning.

Chrome will now automatically exit fullscreen mode when dialog boxes are opened for things like authentication, payments, or file collectors, so users will have a better context for decisions when they meet this information.
