Google Chrome holds the title of being the most popular browser in the world and this speaks volumes about the services that it offers. There are many reasons to why Google Chrome is so popular, but one of the most important ones has to be the frequent updates that it receives. Google is the company that is in charge of this browser and if there’s something everyone knows about the Android parent, then it must be the fact that Google is on a never-ending pursuit to improve the performance and user experience that its apps offer.
Google Chrome 68.0.3440.85 Update
As already mentioned, Google keeps releasing software updates for all its apps on a weekly basis. Therefore, it shouldn’t shock anyone to find out that Google Chrome has just received a brand-new update that changes its version number to “68.0.3440.85”.
Android Package Kit (APK)
Before we get into the contents of the new update, we need to mention that its available only in the form of APK. This means that the update is exclusive to Android users and that Google Chrome fans who want to get it need to do it manually since APK updates are not rolled out OTA (over the air).
Improved Stability and Performance
The patch notes for Google Chrome’s latest update include the following message from the developers: “Thanks for choosing Chrome! This release includes stability and performance improvements”. Therefore, Google Chrome fans should be happy to know that if they install this latest APK update on their smartphone, the browser will run faster than ever!
The reason why Google release APK versions of its updates is because it wants eager Android users to test them out for bugs. Furthermore, APK updates remain exclusive to beta testers for only a couple of weeks because they are rolled out OTA after that. With that said, the new Google Chrome update will start rolling out to everyone during the upcoming weeks.
