Google presents Canvas for amazing handcrafted drawings

If you're into doodling, Google has released a progressive web app named Chrome Canvas for making quick doodles.

The native Chrome OS drawing tool is quite basic for now, giving users only a handful of tool options with different widths and opacities, accompanied by a colour palette where you can select any hex tone. These doodles can automatically be save to your Google account, via Chrome Unboxed.

Visit https://canvas.apps.chrome/ to open Chrome Canvas and you can begin drawing with virtual pencils, chalk, markers and fountain pens (with an eraser to undo any mistakes).

TheVerge says the feature first showed up in a recent Chrome OS Dev build, but it now supports any browser supporting WebAssembly, which includes Firefox. This gives you a massive range of palettes. After finishing the doodle, you can export it in the form of a PNG file to your smartphone.

Zero becomes Shah Rukh Khan’s 5th highest Opening Day grosser
Biz should've witnessed solid growth on Day 2 after an underwhelming Day 1, but is struggling at the BO. While Zero has got mixed reviews, the performances of SRK, Anushka and Katrina are being praised.

The most convenient part of this web app is that you can pull up your drawings on any platform-be it smartphones or desktops-and continue working on them.

For those with a Chromebook, you can install Canvas right into your app drawer just by tapping the three-dot menu and selecting "install Canvas".

The app is swift to use and a delight for all the artists out there.
