Chrome 67 with WebAuth, Generic Sensor API and WebXR Device API Support is Now Available

One of the things that Google puts a high price on is user security. The Android parent is always looking to enhance the security of all its apps, Chrome included. Talking about Chrome, fans of the browser should be happy to know that Google just released a new and stable version of Chrome 67 for Windows, Linux, and Mac. The new version comes with 34 security fixes and support for WebAuthn.

WebAuth

The first thing we need to mention about the new Chrome 67 is that rumors were pointing towards the fact that Google is looking to remove passwords because they are so easy to crack. However, the addition of WebAuth is confirming to us that those rumors were false and that Google is, in fact, setting WebAuth as a default security measure.

Sign Up Using Biometrics

The reason why the addition of WebAuth to Chrome 67 is so important is that it means that users are going to be able to sign in with biometrics such as facial images which are stored on a smartphone, USB hardware (Yubikey’s Authentication Device) or even fingerprints.

Generic Sensor API

Another important change that the Chrome 67 new introduces is support for the Generic Sensor API which is a W3C specification produced by Intel. Generic Sensor API allows the browser to expand the use of sensors from native apps to web applications which are used for gaming purposes, fitness tracking, VR, and AR.

WebXR Device API

We should also mention that Google added WebXR Device API to Chrome 67 which is going to help companies that create mobile VR gadgets such as Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, and Daydream enhance the immersive experiences that they offer. Not just that, but the API will also help applications that use 360-degree videos, 3D or 2D immersive surroundings to better present data visualization, art, and home shopping.
