Google has announced that WebGPU, an API (application programming interface) that allows high-performance 3D graphics and data-parallel computation on the web, is now available by default in Chrome 113, which is currently in the beta channel. .
According to the company, the initial release of WebGPU is available on ChromeOS, macOS and Windows.
However, support for other platforms will come later this year.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai also shared about the release of WebGPU on Twitter, saying: “WebGPU in Chromium 113, excited for the web and great to see this ship stable!”. WebGPU will allow developers to achieve the same level of graphics as they do now with much less code.
Google further noted that the initial release of WebGPU serves as a building block for future updates and enhancements.
Meanwhile, Google is reportedly working on a new “Search Companion” feature for Chrome. Search Companion will be a useful new way to search the web using Lens, reports 9to5google. With the new feature, the tech giant aims to create a deeper connection between Lens and Chrome.
