Google Chrome’s “Kaleidoscope” project aggregates video streaming services on one page
Google is reportedly working on a new feature for Google Chrome, which will aggregate content from various streaming platforms onto a single page. The feature, called Chrome Kaleidoscope, is currently available on the Canary version of Google Chrome, however, it isn’t functional yet.
As per a recent report from Chrome Story, the Kaleidoscope project can be accessed on Chrome Canary by visiting the URL chrome://kaleidoscope/ and the page displays the following message:
“Chrome Kaleidoscope is not currently available for your account. If you are a Googler check out go/kaleidoscope-not-available for more information.”
But Chrome Story was recently able to access two new pages for the feature before being redirected to this message. The first Chrome Kaleidoscope page states: “All your shows in one place…You can see all your favorite shows in one place, no matter where they’re hosted. Select the providers you use below.” The page also lists down a couple of streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+.
Selecting the services and clicking on the Next button on the bottom of the page redirects to the second page, which states: “Continue watching across all your devices.” The rest of the page, however, is blank. We believe that this page would list down content from the platforms selected on the previous page once the feature rolls out.
Chrome Kaliedoscope could prove to be a useful addition to the browser, especially for those of you who have subscribed to multiple streaming platforms. As of now, we have no further information about the feature or its release timeline. However, since Googlers have started testing the feature in Chrome Canary, we expect to learn more in the following weeks.
