Google Gives Chrome Android Users Access To Beta Channel

Are you a die-hard Chrome convert? Do you crave access to the latest bleeding-edge versions of your favorite browser? Google’s got just the ticket for you, announcing today the availability of the Chrome Beta channel for Android devices.

Not to necessarily try and dissuade you, but Google’s quite clear in its announcement of the Beta channel that running these brand-new releases can end up exposing you to some buggy behavior you wouldn’t otherwise see in a stable Chrome release. On the other hand, you could also get access to new features and improvements before anyone else, so it’s really a bit of a trade-off.

If that balance sounds good to you, hit up the link below (Google explains that you won’t find this version in a normal Play Store search, probably to keep unsuspecting users from getting themselves in over their head) and get cracking with the most recent changes to come to Chrome. Newest on the list: benchmark enhancements and new HTML5 features.
