All indications are it has been a busy week for the Google team. Earlier today I told you about the update to Google Photos and Google Play Music that brought some improvements and fixes. Now in the Google Play Store there are updates for Google Chrome and Google+ for Android available. Both of these absolutely fall into the bug fix and performance improvement category so don’t look for any new functionality or features. But, as always, you should update to the latest versions of Google Chrome and Google+ to keep up-to-date.
The Google Chrome build is version 44.0.2403.128 while the Google+ build is version 188.8.131.52065591 for those keeping score at home and like playing version number bingo. The updates are for both Android phone and tablet devices.
On both of the releases for Google Chrome and Google+ for Android, the Release Notes state only that there were bug fixes and performance enhancements. What specifically was addressed in each release is not mentioned but as readers well know, this is a normal practice for Google and many other developers on these minor dot releases. Ultimately though if you have experienced any
“weirdness” with either of the apps, it’s probably a good idea to get these updates to see if it solves your particular issue.
As I mentioned in my opening comments, don’t look for any new features. There aren’t any – at least none that I have found in either app or mentioned in the Release Notes.
Both Google Chrome and Google+ for Android are free apps.
