Google has updated the Android version of its Chrome browser to 25. With the update comes numerous feature additions, such as the ability to play audio while the app is in the background. Of course, like all app updates, this update brings with it numerous stability and performance fixes.


The full update list includes:

  • Improved scrolling performance
  • Increased responsiveness to pinch-zooming on pages
  • Faster interactive pages thanks to the latest version of the V8 javascript engine
  • Audio now continues to play while Chrome is in the background
  • Expanded support for HTML5 features
  • Support for pausing audio in Chrome when phone is in use (note: this requires an additional permission)

You can pick up the latest version of the app on the Google Play Store.
