Chrome Beta for Android Gets a Solid Update to Version 27
A surprisingly high number of Android users have been relying on the beta version of Chrome for Android to bring their browsing experiences to a new level. In this regard Google has done a more than adequate job at upgrading the software with the latest features that for the most part reach the stable release weeks later.
Google is currently testing beta version features for both the Android platform and the desktop version. These versions are meant for tasting the latest features that the developer decides to implement so that users can report any issues that will get fixed for the final release. It is the kind of practice that more and more developers seem to be adopting, greatly reducing the number of problems with the stable releases.
The latest version 27.0.1453.49 for Chrome Beta contains a number of great features, including a new full screen experience on phones, while if you scroll down the page the toolbar will disappear to give you the full real-estate. Another feature that has been implemented is for improved search, and like the developer states “searching from the omnibox will keep your search query visible in the omnibox, making it easier to edit, and show more on your search result page.” You can also long press the browser back button to view your tab history, just like with the webkit based version. Chrome Beta is available now on the Store.
