Chrome for Android is latest app to receive update from Google

chrome-for-android-630

I hope you’re still hungry for some piping hot app updates, Android users, because Google has announced that it’s now rolling out a new version of Chrome for Android.

The newest version of the Chrome for Android app is version 35.0.1916.122. It includes some pretty significant new features, including the ability to undo a tab close and support for select multi-window devices. It also includes support for fullscreen video with subtitles and HTML5 controls, the ability to cast some videos with Chromecast and unspecified bug fixes.

This is the third major app update that Google has issued in the past 24 hours, with the other two being Gmail and Google+. It’s great to see El Goog continue to refine its apps and add significant new features, and I’m betting that Android users are happy to be getting so many new toys to play with.

The new version of Chrome for Android should be available from the Play Store in the coming hours. You can find the app itself by clicking the Google Play widget below.

    Still not over how badly they nerfed tab swiping a few months back, and now they add a visual screen que for every single tab I close? Are people really having that much trouble with tabs?

      I’m just honestly not even sure how someone would close a tab by accident on mobile (as compared to how easy it is on desktop- a single click). On mobile, you’ve gotta launch the tab view (with a specific tap) and then drag a tab off screen (with a long, solid swipe). Who does that on accident?

      • vforvortex

        On mobile, once you are in the tab view, you could press on the ‘x’ at top right instead of having to close using swipe gesture. I get what you are saying, but this kind of makes it more uniform as is their goal across all platforms that most actions have an ‘undo’ option be it in contacts, photos, gmail and now chrome.

    So I no longer need Chrome Beta to cast HTML 5 videos to my Chromecast? Sweet. I hope is bugfree (or almost) now because on the Chrome Beta is a pretty buggy to use feature.

  • Soboku

    In till they add plugins extension and a close button it’s Worthless to me. I’ll stay with open source firefox.

  • Mikes_phone_and_tab

    Is anyone else having trouble with tapping to click in this latest update? It seems to me like it’s much more finicky. Things that used to take one not-so-careful tap are taking several attempts, or even zooming in to increase the size of the target.
