Google Chrome

New version will roll out to users over the next few days

Google has updated the Chrome browser for Android today, bringing the version number up to 33.0.1750.132. Along with the usual performance and stability tweaks, there are several changes highlighted by the Chrome team.

  • Download progress notification for file downloads using the Chrome network stack
  • Updated help and feedback UI
  • Support for <datalist> tag

The new help and feedback UI is a simple modification that opens the help center in its own view, with its own action bar. The functionality is the same, just with a new look.

The new version will follow the usual Google #trollout, and all users should expect to have it within the next few days. Try your luck by using the Google Play link above.

Chrome for Android updated to version 33, brings minor user-facing changes


I just got this update today actually, which is shocking considering I usually get shafted when it comes to Google's rollout

Me too. I got my update before I read this article. I usually get Google's app updates like a week after rollout starts.

It had been waiting since yesterday in the Play Store for me. Just didn't update it right away. There is an update notification in Chrome now that I have not seen before. It was quite annoying in fact.

Just received this update on my N5 and N7 2013 about an hour ago.. nice! s well as the GNL update.. very nice!! :)

Can you recommend a better one? I guess I like the simpleness of AOSP.

I'm currently using Tint Browser and its very light but feature-packed. Naked Browser is also good if you don't mind its UI.

Did they finally fix that annoying issue where pictures don't appear in the gallery app when you download using chrome?

P.S I'm not able to sign into my google account on Chrome after updating. LG G2 on Rogers btw.

Same thing happened with my account on my Sprint LG G2. I went into Chrome settings, deactivated my account, and then signed back in. It seems to have fixed the annoying "can't sign in..." pop-ups.

How about just fix the random crashes that plague it? That would be novel. Only reason I keep going back to chrome is the saved browsing across multiple devices. That service works better than any other I've tried.

Chrome started crashing on my phone this week, but it worked great before. On my laptop it's a totally different story, though. Anyway, I hope this update fixes things. The crashing didn't happen often enough for me to notice so soon after updating, but so far so good.

It must have been a huge dump, 'cause it took forever to download via LTE with a strong signal.
