Google has announced that Chrome desktop will now autocorrect typos you make in the URL bar. The search giant said that it will roll out the feature to mobile in the coming months but for now, it’s just on desktop. If you make a typo in the URL bar, Chrome will show you suggestions based on corrections but shouldn’t mess with what you’re typing.

The company has announced the feature as part of Global Accessibility Awareness Day. It hopes the feature will help people with dyslexia but also those still learning the language and anyone else who makes typos from time to time, which is basically everyone.
