Official Windows 10 Timeline Extension for Google Chrome

Google Chrome Icon Big 2

If you find Windows Timeline useful, here is the great news:  Now you can add the Timeline support to Google Chrome using the official extension from Microsoft.

Timeline is a feature that allows users to review their activity history and quickly return to their previous tasks. It shows a list of your recently used apps, documents and web pages. With the help of Cortana, your activities from all devices running under the same Microsoft Account can also be shown!

Microsoft made Timeline available to the public with Windows 10 build 17063 of the Redstone 4 branch. According to the press release, the company is thinking of simplifying how you can get back to stuff you were working on in the past. The user can easily forget which site or app he was using or where he saved a file. Timeline is a new tool which will allow the user to get right back to where he left off.

How it works

Timeline is integrated with the Task View feature and can be opened with an updated taskbar icon. Running apps and virtual desktops now appear above the Timeline area. Timeline's groups occupy the entire area below it. Activities are organized by dates for the last 30 days. Once you click on a group, it is expanded to a view organized by hours.

Timeline is only enabled for users who sign in with their Microsoft Account. If you are using a local account, then it is not available for you.
