Although Google’s detailed changelogs about the new update have not been published yet, we can take hints from all the features of the Chrome 89 beta.

One of the key features of Google Chrome 89 is customizable user profiles, which enables users to use colors and backgrounds to customize their Google Chrome profiles within the browser. This will make it easier to recognize and switch between different profiles.

The second feature is Web sharing on desktop (Windows and Chrome OS). It allows users to share website links through a native sharing menu. 

In a website that supports the new Web sharing feature, press the “Share” button on the website. A native sharing menu will appear showing all the apps installed on your device. 

With this feature, you are able to share website links with social media platforms, as well as with any app that supports it. There is no need to add any code for the functionality to work on Windows and Chrome OS.
