Chrome for Android out of beta, available now on Google Play

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 8:28PM EST

Google is trying to end the debate over which mobile browser works best for Android by releasing the mobile version of its popular Chrome browser to the Google Play store on Wednesday. The Android version of the browser had been in Beta until Wednesday and is currently only available for devices that have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher. Google says that the latest version “picks up important stability and performance fixes since the last Beta, along with some minor UI adjustments, especially for tablets.” Key features in Chrome for Android include the ability to sync open tabs, bookmarks and passwords from users’ desktop browser to their smartphone or tablet; the ability to send open pages on users’ desktop version of Chrome to their tablets and smartphones to be read later; and the ability to switch tabs “the way you would fan a deck of cards,” according to Google.
