Chrome for Android Beta Sees Third Chrome 68 Build

The third Chrome 68 build has arrived for the Chrome for Android Beta app in the Play Store.  The app, which anyone can download and install on their phone, is now running build 68.0.3440.33.  If you already have the app installed, you should have the OTA update ready to install on your phone.

The focus of this update, as per the norm, is bug fixes and performance improvement in the browser.  As you may recall from the first beta release from a couple of weeks back, there are a slew of changes coming to Chrome for Android with Chrome 68.  A new horizontal task switcher is available, a new Home screen mini bar instead of a banner has been added as well as new identifications for non-HTTPS sites that you visit.

We still have some time yet before Chrome 68 is released for Android, browsers and Chrome OS.  The release is expected to happen July 24th, a little over a month from now.  That means that we can expect at least another 2 or maybe even three updates to the beta build before it gets released to the Stable channel.

If you want to give the beta a try, you can download it from the Play Store.  You can run both the stable version and the beta version on your phone at the same time.
