Google updates Chrome for iOS with data compression and translation tools

Advertisement

If you all remember last week’s news about Google’s Chrome browser receiving an update with very interesting features for Android users. Among these we saw Google launching new data compression tools that would use Google servers to optimize website navigation speeds and data consumption on mobile devices, in a similar way to what we’ve seen from Opera for years.

As expected, this new feature has just been announced for iOS today, and you should be seeing the update now, or you may access it on the iTunes Store as well. Aside from these data compression features, Google is also including translation tools for iOS customers, making it easier to navigate on foreign websites like you can with the desktop version of Chrome.

Just remember that you have to activate this service, and that your privacy is guaranteed if you use Incognito mode at any point. It’s still hard to tell if these changes make Chrome faster on iOS than Safari, but time will tell.
