While the auto-answer feature worked well when I tested it out in Chrome Canary (giving me the Yankees score from last night, and completing mathematic equations), its use of already-opened tabs didn't work during as well. Still, background tabs only get a vertical separator, rather than distinct shapes. No sign of a dark mode, outside of Incognito mode.
The new design takes up more space. The tab and address bar (shown here, maximized) is taller now.
Front and center is a redesign of Chrome's UI.
There are a few tweaks to the autocomplete pop-up, too.
The new update will be coming your way today and will be visible on all platforms including desktop, Android and iOS.

Google Celebrates Chrome's 10th Birthday With Password Manager, Design Overhaul
"Today, in honor of Chrome's 10th birthday, we're launching several new features", Rahul Roy-Chowdhury, VP of Product Management at Google, stated in an announcement. Google says that Chrome can recognize sign-in forms more accurately, so you hopefully won't come across sign-in fields that aren't recognized. That all changes with the release of version 69, targeted for September 4, which brings what Google calls its Material Design language to the web browser.
In general, the new design of Google Chrome features more rounded corners, new icons, and a whiter color palette. You see, Chrome was simplistic and focused.
Fancy new aesthetics aren't the only thing arriving with Chrome's latest version.
Circling back around to the New Tab Page, Chrome will now let you customize it by adding your own shortcuts and even adding your own wallpaper. Unlike most of the Chrome upgrades we see roughly every six weeks, this update is packed to the brim with new features. Google's also doubling down on security with an upgraded password manager that'll now automatically generate passwords for you so you don't use the same password for all your accounts.
Perhaps, most useful is the "Already Opened" feature in the Omnibox, which will alert us tab warriors of page searches that we now have buried in pile of open tabs.
Chrome's Omnibox, the one that sits at the top and combines the search bar and address bar just got a lot better with this update. It's far from flawless, of course, and the Chrome development team knows it. "Say you're shopping for a couch online and want to see how it would look in your living room. With the power of AR and Chrome, you'd be able to place a virtual rendition of a couch in your living room, right from your smartphone". "We've also integrated machine learning to detect phishing and malware sites, and most recently began applying it to detect malicious extensions".
