Do you love using Google Chrome on your Android-powered smartphone to surf the web? If that is the case, then you should make sure to keep your smartphone connected to Wi-Fi today. The reason why we are saying that is because a brand-new update that sports the 84.0.4147.125 version number is now rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels.
Google Chrome 84.0.4147.125 Update
The first thing that we want to note about Google Chrome’s new update is that there are two ways to download it. You can get it via Google’s official OTA channels by simply keeping your smartphone connected to the internet or by manually downloading and installing in the form of APK (Android Package Kit). Although, we do need to mention that installing APK releases is possible only on smartphones that have enabled the “Unknown Sources” option.
The question that all Google Chrome fans must be asking right now is what’s new?
