In web browsers, it is frustrating when you opened multiple tabs and forget the tab, which is playing the video or songs. As a result, you cannot stop or pause the media instantly when you need to pay close attention to something else on the web. However, the recent Chrome version 79 update fixes this by adding a centralized toolbar button that stacks all the playing media on the browser to play, pause, and skip those.
After updating to the latest Chrome version 79, you will find three lines with a music note icon on the toolbar. Now, if you are playing some media on the browser then just click on the toolbar button, a drop-down box will appear showing the media which are being played on the browser.
Moreover, YouTube videos in the toolbar show the preview images so that you could know what video is getting played or paused. You can click on the x button to remove an audio or video from the stack if you don’t want to control one from the toolbar. This feature is somewhat similar to the play controls in the Chrome OS notification center and Android notification shade.
The feature was available in Chromium test builds, now Google released it with Chrome version 79. However, the feature is rolling out, so everyone does not receive this feature yet.
