If you want to look through your Chrome browsing history, click on “More options” (the three dots) and then select “History.” But did you know Google Chrome also supports a similar feature called “Memories”? Think of Memories as an enhanced version of History.
What Is “Memories” in Chrome?
Memories is a built-in Chrome feature that saves your browsing history and organizes it into categories. You can use it even when switching between different accounts. For example, switch from your personal Google account to your G-Suite account. You can use Memories to look through your browsing history combined. Memories organizes your browsing history into different cards based on specific categories.
How to Enable Google Chrome Memories
- Open a new tab, and enter Chrome://flags#memories in the address bar.
- Hit Enter to open the flag menu.
- Use the drop-down menu next to Memories to enable this feature.
- You can also customize your settings and select how large you want the History cluster to be.
- Restart your browser to apply the changes.
If you can’t enable this option, go to Help, select About Google Chrome, and check for updates. Update Chrome to the latest version and try to enable Memories again.
Keep in mind that Memories is still an experimental feature. If enabling it breaks other browser functionalities, you can always turn it off.
