Chrome for Android Update Brings Chrome 65 to Everyone

A new update of Chrome for Android has been released to the Play Store, bringing the mobile browser up to Chrome 65 along with a few new features.  The new version is build 65.0.3325.109 for those keeping score at home.  It will take several weeks to reach everyone.

This Chrome 65-based build has been through four beta builds in that version of the browser, with the last one coming just last week.  That build from last week is the exact same build that has now been promoted to the stable version for everyone.

Along with bringing all of the stability improvements and fixes that come with Chrome 65, this new build of Chrome for Android also has some new features and changes.  First, you can now set language preferences for web content in the browser.  This is done via Settings>Languages.  Next, you can turn on the prompt for simplified viewing for all supported articles in the Accessibility settings.  Finally, you can share and delete download more easily on the Downloads page.

As is normally the case with updates to Chrome, don’t expect it to be available today.  Google tends to slow roll these updates out from the Play Store so it could be another week or so before you actually see it on your phone or tablet.  That said, if you really  want it now, the team over at APKMirror has it available to download and sideload to your phone.
