How To Change The Default Browser On Google Pixel 7

The default browser of your Google Pixel 7 is, of course, Google Chrome. It is the most popular web browser in the world but there are people who prefer to use other browsers. 

But just because you own a Pixel 7 doesn’t mean you don’t have a choice but to use Chrome to browse the web. You can change the web browser of your phone to whatever browser you want to use. 

Estimate Cost : 0

Time Needed : 3 minutes

In fact, Google made it very easy to change the default apps on its Pixel phones and that’s what we’re going to show you here. 

So here’s what you should do: 

  1. Pull up the App Drawer and tap Settings.

    This will open the Settings app that allows you to change most of the settings and features in your device. 

  2. Find and tap Apps among the other options.

    This brings you to the screen where you can manage the applications in your device. 

  3. Under the General section, tap Default apps.

    This will show you a list of services with their respective default applications. 

  4. Tap Browser app.

    It’s the first on the list and it will list down all the available web browsers in your phone. 

  5. Simply tap on the browser you want to use.

    This will immediately change the default app used in opening links from the text messages and other apps. 

  • Google Chrome
  • Google Pixel 7

However, if you don’t see any other web browser in that list, it means that you haven’t installed alternative browsers yet. 

So you just have to launch the Play Store, search for a browser you like and then install it. Among your options are Mozilla Firefox, Brave, Opera and many more. 

And that’s how you change the default web browser on your Google Pixel 7. 

We hope that this guide can help you.
