Google Chrome for Android: According to the Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) “The Chromium Blog,” Thursday January 10 marked the first day users can “install Chrome Beta channel for phones and tablets on Android 4.0+ from Google Play.”
Since being launched last year, there have been a couple of updates here and there. That being said, this is by far the biggest update since its original launch.
If you are interested in installing the Chrome Beta for Android, you will need to visit this link to the Google Play app store to do so.
According to CNET, this update has been a long time coming:
“Google has been working to put Chrome for Android on the same six-week update cycle as the personal computer version of the browser, and it looks like this release is part of that change. The Chrome 25 beta brings a number of new features, but Google warns of sluggish performance and some other problems.”
In other words, don’t get too excited about this update from Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) just yet. As you get started, you may realize that there are some issues that need to be worked out. That being said, this is a “beta release” so it is to be expected.
At this point, you are probably looking for some information on the new features.
