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 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.

Drone sightings ground planes at UK's Gatwick airport
Police said the "devices used are of an industrial specification", an indication that the drones weren't small, low-cost machines. Passengers waiting Friday to check in at Gatwick's South Terminal building faced the longest delays seen there in several years.

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.
