Google Search and uncover not open websites in fullscreen

In a curious change, the Google Search app and uncover on Android not opens websites in fullscreen, however considerably makes use of a sheet.

When opening a Search consequence or uncover article (each the Google app feed and to the left of uncover), web websites now open in a sheet that reveals a sliver of the current background.

When in Search, you both get the Google mannequin inside the event you faucet the important consequence or the sector collectively with your question as a consequence of the background. this might be Google’s method of preserving navigation context and reminding these that there are extra outcomes. 

in the meantime, this internet sheet continues to be a Chrome personalized Tab, with Google reminding you that it’s “working Chrome” on the biggest till the online page completely a complete bunch. you proceed to get a detailed button on the very left, whereas share, save, and the overflow menu spherical issues out. there is a pull tab on the very prime that permits you to swipe all of the method down to dismiss, whereas going the incorrect method extends the sheet so the background is hidden. 

by the use of usability, you do lose some vertical space nonetheless it’s not that impactful to the studying expertise. in the meantime, Google Search/uncover is sensible about what opens in a sheet and what goes fullscreen. for event, an ESPN video routinely opened with earlier conduct for a better viewing expertise.  

We’re encountering this variation on a handful of Pixel telephones working Google app thirteen.37, which is at the second in beta. It’s unclear how extensively rolled out this variation is or whether or not it’s simply an A/B confirm.
