In this guide, we will show you the steps to make the navigation bar or pill transparent in the Chrome browser. Back with Android 10, Google introduced the gesture navigation style and alongside that, it also made one of the most infuriating additions to the OS- the welcoming abode of the pill. To make the matter, you cannot remove this pill until you have a rooted Android device [though some OEMs are now providing an option to remove it].
However, it seems that now Google s now finally taking a small yet significant step in the right direction. Beginning with the Chrome version 114 update, you could now make the navigation bar or pill transparent in the Chrome browser. As a result of this, you could now clearly see the content behind the navigation bar without any intrusion or UI/UX disruption. So without any further ado, let’s show you how this could be carried out.
