The study says that as of March 2024, 3.45 billion internet users use Google Chrome, which is about 63.87% of the global browser market. Maybe the free-of-charge is the key reason behind this. And now, to expand its versatility, Google has launched a paid version of Chrome called ‘Chrome Enterprise Premium.’ 

Chrome is a browser developed by the brand and is one of the most familiar pieces of software in its category, as well as one of the most preferred. All credit goes to its several features that suit the convenience of the users. The company consistently strives to improve the browsing experience through constant enhancements. Recently, Google has introduced the possibility of forcing dark mode on all sites, as both a function capable of bringing order to the multiple tabs open in the browser is arriving, or even as soon as the Incognito Mode of the software will surely protect the privacy of users. 

Now, Google is introducing a subscription plan, as it offers a business-oriented version of Google Chrome named Chrome Enterprise Premium. However, at the moment, the giants have not revealed detailed plan information or what features the premium version offers. 

Google has therefore decided to debut a new version of the paid Chrome browser, dedicated to business users. Chrome Enterprise now boasts two options, which are as follows: 

  • The Core Plan (free) 
  • The Premium Plan (paid) 

The brand’s ‘new browser can offer an extra layer of data protection to users while they are online, using tools such as automatic updates to protect against newly emerged vulnerabilities and personalized site permissions across all managed devices. But not only that, the new version of Chrome is specially introduced to block suspicious add-ons to better prevent any type of hacker attack. Both versions of Chrome Enterprise differ in some features; however, the Core version also represents a more than valid solution. The recently introduced Premium subscription plan can offer additional features such as: 

  • Deep malware scan 
  • Power to filter URLs based on website category 
  • Data loss prevention 
  • Context-aware access for Saas, Google Cloud, and private web apps through Chrome.

VPN by Google One will no longer be available as Google decided to shut down this service sometime later this year. 

Google informed Google One users through an email that it was shutting down the VPN Google One service. However, in the mail, the exact date to shut down the service is not mentioned; instead, it is just mentioned that the benefit will be phased out “later this year.” 

Google One VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. Until now, it has been a part of the Google One subscription service and is available on Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows. It just encrypts the web traffic and protects privacy online. Google One introduced this VPN as an optional service to other well-known virtual private networks, such as Nord VPN and Express VPN. 

Google made the VPN available on all Google One plans, even the cheapest $1.99 per month one. In an email, Google stated that it’s phasing out VPNs through Google One to make way for more in-demand features and benefits. Apart from all this, Google also confirmed that it is shutting down the VPN feature, and the aim behind this is that ‘people simply were not using it.’ 

However, Pixel users will still be able to access Google’s VPN through Pixel settings if they have a Pixel 7 or upper model, as Google confirmed. Also, free shipping for select print orders from Google Photos in Canada, the UK, the US, and the EU starts on May 15.
