Google has rolled-out the latest update for the Chrome Beta for Android app. The updated app is available by way of Google Play and remains compatible only with devices running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The app is still also clearly noted as beta with a version number of 0.18.4409.2396. That bit aside though, there has been some nice additions this time around. Just to begin with, Chrome Beta for Android now has support for an additional 31 languages. In addition, here are the other features that one can expect in this latest release;

  • You can now request the desktop version of a website, in case you would rather not view the mobile version.
  • You can now add bookmarks as shortcuts on your home screen, so you can get to your favorite sites faster.
  • Choose your favorite apps to handle links opened in Chrome.
  • Have a proxy setup for Wi-Fi access? You can now use Chrome with the system proxy configured in Android settings.
