Google updated its Chrome browser for Android and iOS-powered mobile devices to version 32, to match the desktop version.

This latest release for smartphones introduces a data compression feature that reduces data usage by as much as half. This means that you can access your favorite online content and use up less of your data plan.

Chrome for Android and Chrome for iOS were both recently updated by Google to version 32. This update addresses your need to save money on your mobile data plan and your need to access online content without using up too much data. This update introduces a data compression and bandwidth management feature that reduces data usage by as much as 50%.

To enable the data compression feature presented above, you must go to the Settings Menu, the Bandwidth Management submenu, and then toggle Reduce Data Usage to ON.

Please note that the data compression feature enables the Safe Browsing technology that Chrome uses to protect your from malicious webpages. That’s not a bad thing, it only means you will be protected for dangerous sites when you surf the web on your mobile.

In related news, it must be mentioned that Google also updated Chrome for desktop to version 32. The main new feature Chrome 32 has to offer is a means of visually identifying tabs that play music. When several tabs are open and one of them starts to play music, a speaker icon will be displayed by that tab.



From a visual point of view, Chrome 32 for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 comes with an updated user interface. The UI was revamped to match the new Chrome Metro interface.

If you want to get Chrome 32 for your Windows-powered desktop machine, you can get it right here on FindMySoft.
If you want to get the latest Chrome version for Android or iOS, you can get it from the Play Store and App Store respectively.
