According to the latest reports, the search engine giant, Google has been planning to add a button to its Chrome browser.

Through this feature, the users will be able to play or pause the video from any tab. Recently, the company has released the Canary development versions of Chrome.

The new version of Chrome contains a new feature named as Global Media Controls. Once you have enabled the feature, you will be able to see the play icon next to the URL, just beside the bookmark star.

The play icon will be displayed only if a video is being played on that particular tab.

If you click on that icon, a larger control appears before you that allows you to play, pause or skip forward/backward, you do not have to see the video.

This video will help a lot of people and let them avoid annoying auto-play videos. Moreover, you can control YouTube videos if you have switched to another tab.

It is considered as one of the best moves by the search engine giant. Recently, the company allowed its users to mute a particular tab by clicking on the speaker.

Global Media Controls are more versatile and play an important role in improving the user interface.

It is reported that the feature might not work properly. It works on limited no of tabs not all. Obviously, this feature is in the testing phase and needs improvements as well.

If you want to give it a try, just download the latest Canary browser from here. And, then enable the flag chrome://flags/#global-media-controls
