Google is reportedly working on a new feature on Chrome browser that will now show an option to delete browsing activity like history, cookies, and cached images of the last 15 minutes.


Chrome Story report confirms that this new feature will be dubbed "Quick Delete" as spotted on the Chromium Gerrit, which is a website that tracks the development of the browser from Google.

Currently, Chrome has the option to let account holders delete their browsing activities for the last hour, 24 hours, 7 days, 4 weeks, and "all time". However, this new 15-minute option which is still under development can help users easily delete activities of the last few minutes.

Under clear browsing data, the tip range has a list of time frames for users to choose from. The new 15-minute option will appear first, just above other time range options already available.

Google's standalone search application (Not Chrome), already has the feature of deleting the last 15 minutes already been implemented on Android and iOS since 2021. This can be accessed through the app, then tapping on your Google account profile picture, you will see the 'Delete last 15 minutes' option.
