Google releases official Chrome beta channel to the Play store


Want to stay at the very forefront of web-browsing technology? Don’t mind a few hiccups along the way? Google’s got your back. Just announced on the Chrome blog, Google has released an official Chrome for Android beta channel into the Play store, compatible with all Android 4.0+ devices.

According to the blog post detailing the release, Chrome beta will include early access to new features, and will be able to be installed right alongside stable Chrome releases. In the latest beta build, accessible only by clicking the link below (searing apparently won’t work), Google has improved the Octane performance benchmark on average by 25 to 30 percent. There are some HTML5 features for developers included, as well.

Even though Google was quick to mention Chrome beta builds may contain bugs, all of Google’s beta products have a reputation for being daily driver worthy. I’d expect the same out of Chrome beta for Android. Be sure to download the latest beta build and let us know what you think.
