Google Brings Chrome For Android Out of Beta

By: Chris Richardson - June 27, 2012

While you’ve been able to download the beta version for a little while now, are you ready for a non-beta version of Chrome for Android? Google thinks that you are, or, well, at least their mobile browser is ready for prime time consumption, and so, they’ve officially removed the beta status from mobile app.

According to the Google Chrome Releases blog, the non-beta Chrome for Android is compatible with devices that have Android 4.0 or better installed. Essentially, you have to at least have an Ice Cream Sandwich before Google allows you to play with their mobile browser. Updates the official release include, “important stability and performance fixes since the last Beta, along with some minor UI adjustments, especially for tablets.”

If you’d like to look at a list of known features concerning Chrome for Android, you can do so here.

Google’s mobile browser is available for download at the Google Play store, and if you’re one of the Chrome users who created a user account that keeps track of your preferences across multiple devices, then you can sync Chrome for Android with your already-established settings, including:

  • Sign in to Chrome to sync your open tabs, bookmarks, passwords, and omnibox data from your computer to your phone or tablet. Pick up right where you left off.
  • Send pages from Chrome on your computer to Chrome on your phone or tablet with one click and read them on the go, even when you’re offline.
  • Google for Android also supports Incognito mode, for those of you who like to surf porn without having cookies and other temporary Internet files attached to your session.
