Chrome for Android Update

The Chrome team is excited to announce the promotion of Chrome 27 to the Stable channel. Chrome for Android 27.0.1453.90 contains a number of improvments including:
  • Fullscreen on phones - Scroll down the page and the toolbar will disappear.
  • Simpler searching - Searching from the omnibox will keep your search query visible in the omnibox, making it easier to edit, and show more on your search result page.
  • Client-side certificate support - You can now access sites that require you to use a certificate and Chrome will allow you to select an installed certificate
  • Tab history on tablets - Long press the browser back button to view your tab history
  • And a ton of stability and performance fixes
A partial list of changes in this build is available in the SVN revision log. If you find a new issue, please let us know by filing a bug. More information about Chrome for Android is available on the Chrome site.

When we will have full screen on tablets?

5.8 inch screen size phone. Trying to scroll down a page and still NO fullscreen!

Rafael Hilário said...

Google Play for updating Google Chrome for Android 27 final and there is no update in store. When will you provide the update?

Marvin Uksini said...

The play store says Version 26 is the latest for my Sony Xperia J. Was my phone left out for this release?

Andy Merskin said...

Yeah, same here. My Nexus 4 on TMO doesn't seem to want to update to 27. The app clearly says "updated May 22, 2013" on the Play Store, but isn't actually updated.

Just wait, Play does not roll-out update at the same time for everyone you know and maybe the Chrome team too, whatever. Anyway, if you look at the latest comments in Play you will see that they are already using v27.
