Google has announced that they would soon be performing a trial of utilizing DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) in the Google Chrome browser. This experiment will be conducted in Chrome 78 and will attempt to upgrade a user's DNS server to a corresponding DoH server, and if available, use that for DNS resolution.

For those unfamiliar with DoH, it allows DNS resolution to be conducted over encrypted HTTPS connections rather than through the normal plain text DNS lookups.

As some countries and ISPs block connection to sites by monitoring DNS traffic, DoH will allow users to bypass censorship, possible spoofing attacks, and to increase privacy as their DNS requests cannot be as easily monitored.
