Chrome for Android Update

The Chrome team is excited to announce the promotion of Chrome 25 to the Stable Channel for Android. Chrome 25.0.1364.123 is currently rolling out to Google Play over the next few hours. This update contains a huge number of changes over the previous release, including:
  • 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)
This update also picks up other important stability and performance fixes since the last release, along with some minor UI adjustments. Known issues are available on the Chrome support site.

Interested in other release channels of Chrome for Android? A Beta channel is now available and can be run side by side with Stable. If you find a new issue, please let us know by filing a bug. More information on Chrome for Android is available on the Chrome site.
