Chrome is currently testing a feature that lets iOS users use passwords saved in the browser in other apps, according to MacRumors.

Available on TestFlight for beta testers at the moment, this means that Chrome will soon be available as a source for iOS’ Password AutoFill feature, which you can get to via Settings > Passwords & Accounts > AutoFill Passwords.

For the uninitiated, Apple’s Password AutoFill is designed to simplify login and account creation tasks for iOS apps and webpages. While most iOS users are likely to be saving their credentials on their device and sync them across devices through iCloud Keychain, it’s long been possible for Password AutoFill to work with third-party managers too (e.g., 1Password), which is what Chrome is doing here.

It's unknown when this feature would exit beta.
