If you enjoy using Google Chrome to surf the web at fast speeds on your smartphone, then you might want to consider enrolling in the beta program. The reason why we are saying that is because beta users are always the first ones to access all the latest stability and performance improvements. To make things even better, Chrome’s developers are allowing everyone who uses an Android-powered smartphone to join the program. The only requirement is to provide the developers with solid feedback.
Google Chrome 84.0.4147.69 Beta Update
As previously noted, the beta version of Google Chrome is updated regularly with improvements that are taking the mobile browser’s performances to the next level. Therefore, it should come as no surprise to find out that a new update that sports the 84.0.4147.69 beta version number has been made available for download.
How to Download the New Update
The first and simplest way to access the update and all the improvements that it brings is to join the beta program and to wait for the update to pop up in the notifications panel because it is being rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels.
There is also an alternative way that doesn’t require Chrome fans to join the beta program. The update can be manually downloaded and installed in the form of APK (Android Package Kit). However, we do need to mention that APK releases are compatible only with Android-powered smartphones that have enabled the Unknown Sources option in their Settings panel.
The new update for Chrome focuses on improving the overall performances and it does that by introducing a handful of bug fixes and software tweaks. Thanks to these stability and performance improvements, the new update is categorized as a high priority release.
