Minor Chrome for Android Released

For those who use Chrome for Android, you can expect a minor update to hit your various devices this week.  Build 59.0.3071.117 was released yesterday for Android and follows up on a similar update released for the desktop version of the browser late last week. This update for Android fixes a few crash issues, a performance issue, and an issue which prevented some users from downloading images.

The update is rolling out in the Google Play Store now and everyone should see the OTA update for it this week or next.  It will be particularly important to get this update if you have run into some of the specific issues outlined in the release notes.

The release of this update to Chrome for Android follows up on a release of an update to the desktop browser last week.  That

update also addressed some bugs and performance issues but also included some security updates too.  Last week also saw an update to Chrome OS released and you can expect that a similar update to this midstream build will be coming shortly – likely in the next week or so.

This is the third consecutive month in which the Chromium team has released a midstream release for Chrome.
