Apple's iCloud Passwords extension is now available for Google Chrome on Windows 10. The extension lets you use the passwords saved to your iCloud Keychain within Chrome. Syncing works in both directions, so any changes you make on Chrome with the extension on or in Safari will sync to both platforms.
9to5Google notes that a new "Passwords" section will appear on iCloud for Windows after you update to version 12.0. Within that section, you can select "Apply" to see a shortcut to download the new Chrome extension. You can also grab the extension from the Chrome web store.

Since Apple released iCloud Passwords for Chrome, you can also install it on the new Microsoft Edge. The new browser from Microsoft has its own add-ons section but you can also install Chrome extensions onto Microsoft Edge.
