While this progress is something to be excited about, you will have to wait before taking full advantage of it. In fact, only the Canary version of Chrome, known to be unstable but a pioneer of new features, currently has this option, which is still under development.

The vast majority of users of the stable version will therefore have to be patient. A gradual deployment seems inevitable to refine the integration of AI and its diffusion on a larger scale.

Beyond this limited availability, the new text also raises thorny questions of data confidentiality. Although page content is locally encrypted, Google recognizes that its teams access queries and results to improve AI models. And what about GDPR compliance for European users? Clubic did not have access to this feature on Google Chrome Canary, which probably means that at the time of publication of this article, users affected by the General Data Protection Regulation do not yet have access to this functionality, and that Google is considering adapting it to European rules.

This is a worrying admission for the most cautious, which revives fears of increased surveillance of browsing habits under the guise of technological innovation. Google’s transparency contrasts with Copilot’s recent controversies, but the balance remains delicate between convenience and respect for privacy.

The analysis of this new document provides important clarifications. On the one hand, we better understand the key role of the Gemini AI model, already used by Google in other services, to power this improved historical search.
On the other hand, the text highlights Google’s efforts to improve the display and organization of history, with new options for grouping by date and a more descriptive presentation of the data collected.

However, these improvements appear to be still in development and only available to a few users of the Canary version. A beta deployment should be the next logical step.
