According to the post of Twitter user Leopeva64, this new feature is named Automatic Permission Removal and is located under Site Settings in the website settings. As the name suggests, this function can automatically remove the permissions of websites that users haven't accessed for a long time. For example, if a user once allowed a website to send notifications but later no longer visits the website frequently and forgot to revoke the notification permission, this new feature can automatically disable the notification permission of this website.

TapTechNews needs to point out that this function has existed in the Chrome desktop version for a long time, and this is the first time it appears in the mobile version. Currently, this function is still in the testing stage, but it is likely to be officially launched in the Chrome 128 stable version to be released next month.

In addition to automatically removing website permissions, Google seems to be testing a new function that allows users to decide how long a tab remains inactive before being moved by the browser to the inactive tab partition.
