Google has started displaying a warning to people using Microsofts new Edge browser while accessing Chrome web store.

Recently, the search engine giant has added to the Chrome web store which detects when a user is installing extensions to Microsoft Edge, 9To5Google reported on Friday.

The extension simply explains that Google “recommends” using Chrome instead of Edge to use extensions “securely”.

The message does not appear when using other Chromium-based browsers.

As per the report, the warning does not affect the ability to install Chrome extensions on Microsoft Edge, rather it just warns users against the practice.

According to NetMarketShare, Chrome has a 67 per cent share of the browser market, while Edge has just under 6 per cent.

Google on Monday said it has started showing the locations of food shelters and night shelters in cities across India on its services like Maps, to help people especially migrant workers find relief centers with ease.

The tech giant said it is working closely with state and central government authorities to surface the locations of these relief centres. “As the COVID-19 situation develops, we are making a concerted effort to build solutions that help people during these times of need,” Anal Ghosh, Senior Programme Manager, Google India, said in a statement.

“Highlighting the locations of food and night shelters on Google Maps is a step to make this information easily available to the users in need, and ensure they can avail the food and shelter services being provided by the government authorities,” Ghosh said.

People can now find these locations in 30 cities at the moment on Google Maps, Search and Google Assistant. This will soon be available in Hindi, Google said, adding that the company is working towards making the facility available in other Indian languages over the coming weeks, as well as adding additional shelters in more cities across the country.

People can also enter the above queries into Google Search, or ask their Google Assistant on smartphones or on a KaiOS device. In the coming days, it will become even easier to access this feature, with features like quick-access shortcuts that will appear beneath the search bar on the Google Maps app, shortcuts on Google Maps on KaiOS feature phones, and food and night shelter pins appearing on the map by default when the Maps app is first opened, Google said.

“With the help of volunteers, NGOs, and traffic authorities, we hope to convey this important information to the affected people, many of whom may not have access to a smartphone or mobile device during this time,” informed Ghosh.

Google Maps is also offering user location data to help public health officials spot increase or decrease of movement across high-level categories of places � such as retail and recreation, groceries and pharmacies, parks, transit stations, workplaces and residential areas.
