Microsoft Officially Brings Windows 10 Timeline to Google Chrome

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft has just announced a Google Chrome extension that enables Windows users to access their Windows 10 Timeline activities in Google’s browser.

Previously, Timeline was only supported in Microsoft Edge, and users could expand it to Google Chrome with an unofficial extension that was rolled out in late 2018.

However, with the new extension, called Web Activities, Microsoft makes it possible for all browsing history to be synced between devices and show up in Windows 10 Timeline for seamless transition even if you use Google Chrome.

What’s more important is that your browsing data in Chrome also syncs with Microsoft Launcher on Android, so it’s not just Timeline.

“See your browsing activities across all your devices in surfaces like Windows timeline and Microsoft Launcher for Android,” the extension description reads. “With this extension, your browsing history will appear across all your devices in surfaces such as in Windows timeline and Microsoft Launcher for Android. Just sign in with your Microsoft account, select a site you’ve recently visited, and pick up where you left off.”

In a post for insiders, Microsoft explains that the target for Timeline is to expand it in a way that more apps could be supported. Google Chrome is just one of the first, with many more to come, Microsoft promises.

“As we move into planning for future development, we are focusing on yet another Insider request: add support for more apps in Timeline. Browser support was especially high on our Insider’s wish list — which lead the recent introduction of our Chrome extension. Now, Timeline can now bring together even more activities,” it says.
