google chrome now lets you copy video stills for easy sharing

Google Chrome now makes capturing video stills easier than ever after a new feature was added to the popular web browser.

The company acknowledged the struggle users previously faced when trying to capture video stills, noting that screenshots often produced low-quality images with the video progress bar shown at the bottom.

Today, those issues are gone, and for users of any Chromium-based browser (Such as Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Brave), capturing high-quality stills is as simple as hitting pause, right-clicking, and selecting the “Copy Video Frame” option from the menu.

After trying the new feature ourselves, we noticed that it does have a few issues. For example, you’ll need to right-click twice on YouTube to access the menu: One click will bring up YouTube’s own menu, while the second click reveals the correct Chrome menu with the “Copy Video Frame” option.

Once a user copies a video still, they can paste it directly into another app, such as Google Docs or Apple Notes, for example.

Right now, there’s no option to save a copied video frame directly to your desktop as a standalone file. The feature is also limited when used on videos from streaming services, with many sites restricting the ability to capture their content. So far, we’ve had the best luck using “Copy Video Frame” on YouTube, which is no surprise given that Google’s parent company, Alphabet, owns the video-streaming giant.

The “Copy Video Frame” feature is available now on all desktop platforms that can run Google Chrome, including MacOS, Windows, Linux, and ChromeOS.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
