Just in time for the holiday shopping, Google today announced several new shopping features coming to Chrome browser.

Chrome for Android in the US can now show an item’s updated price right in your open tabs grid (check the image above) so you can easily see if the price has dropped. This feature will be available on iOS in the coming weeks.

You can now search your surroundings with Google Lens in Chrome for Android. To access it, from the address bar, tap the Lens icon and start searching with your camera. Also, Google Lens is coming to Chrome on desktop. You can just right-click and select the “Search images with Google Lens” option. You can then draw over the product you’re interested in, and Lens will display the results in a new tab.

Starting with Chrome on Windows and Mac in the U.S., you can now open up a new tab and scroll to the “Your carts” card to quickly see any site where you’ve added items to a shopping cart. Yes, all the items you have added in cart in different websites will be listed in one location.
