The Text UI is attractive as well as it features corner shortcuts to crop, expand, and delete. In addition to that, doodling allows you to choose from 18 colors and six-stroke sizes. The new tool also enables a user to undo or redo any screenshot.

When you take a screenshot, click on “Next” in the top-right edge and you will be asked to ‘Share this screenshot, Save to device only, or Delete.’ On clicking the ‘save to device’ option your file will download from the web and will pop up in Chrome’s built-in Downloads manager.
