Chrome 63 For Android Released: A Look At All The New Features
Chrome 63 for Android is the latest stable version of Google Chrome released for Android users. The update has begun rolling out today and is expected to reach all users over the next few weeks. This is the latest version of Google Chrome web browser for Android users. It comes with various updates and is primarily aimed at preparing the browser for the Chrome Home UI. Let us take a closer look at all that’s new:
Chrome Home UI
Chrome 63, as we pointed out above, is an update aimed at preparing the browser for the arrival of Chrome Home UI – which is a radical improvement over the existing Chrome UI. The Chrome Home UI will bring the address bar to the bottom and will bring several other changes to the way we know Google Chrome to be. The UI has been available since Chrome 62, but it is available only for those who know how to access Flags on Google Chrome and enable it from the backend.
With Chrome 63, the Chrome Home is almost as good as ready-to-launch. We’d not be surprised if it will finally launch with Chrome 64. The update to the Chrome Home UI here is the addition of a splash screen that welcomes you to the new Chrome, as well as a line of text on the menu that appears when you long press on the screen which says ‘You are using the new Chrome’
In addition to the Chrome Home UI, Google has also updated the way permissions are handled on Google Chrome. With this new update, the permissions dialog will now appear on the center of the screen for Chrome 63 users. In the past this used to slide up from the lower portion of the screen.
This dialog appears every time a website wants to access some features from your phone such as your notifications, camera, microphone, contacts, etc. Chrome states that having it in the center of the screen improves user interactions by up to 5 times.
