Google engineer Carlos Knippschild made a commit on Chromium Gerrit in that regard. By taking a closer look at the actual description, we discover the very purpose of this feature.
To be more precise, the experimental flag will encourage users to keep up with relevant web content on the New Tab Page.
Moreover, he decided to choose a suggestive title, as revealed in the commit: Add a feature flag for the Web Feed feature.
What’s Google Discover all about?
At the moment, Discover is accessible via the Google app and Chrome for iOS and Android. It is a function that displays news when you swipe the home screen of the smartphone application version.
The revealed content usually displayed on Google Discover is updated by an automated system that analyzes the user’s web and app activity collected by Google.
This upcoming WebFeed feature may resemble the Discover feed already found in Chrome. However, it hasn’t been spotted in other Chromium-based mobile browsers yet. It is most likely in the early stages of development.
In spite of that, let us know if you already like the idea of enjoying Google’s personalized news feed in future Chromium-based browser apps, like Vivaldi and Brave, or even on PC.
