Identifying Chrome Tabs That are Currently Playing Audio
Google is working on identifying Chrome tabs that are currently playing audio (or recording it). The feature is expected to show an audio animation if a tab is broadcasting or recording sound.
François Beaufort first spotted the new feature, a part of which is already available in the latest Chromium build. For those who don’t know, Chromium is the open source web browser project that shares much of the same code and features as Google Chrome, and new features are often added there first.
Beaufort recorded a short clip to show how the new feature looks (it currently shows a small indicator on top of the tab favicon).
This is going to be a very cool feature, especially if you tend to open a lot of tabs. Sometimes it can be pretty hard to find out which tab makes the noise. If they had asked me, I would even colored that tab in some “yelling” tint.
