Chrome for Android is updated; release 52 reduces the drain on your battery and more
No one likes a battery draining app. That is why Google has sent out an update for Chrome for Android that reduces the browser's appetite for power. Release 52 is "smoother, loads faster and consumes less battery," according to Google. Videos will start right away instead of making you sit through a little pause, and your battery life will show improvement.
Videos will now work on Data Saver Mode, which will allow you to use only 50% of the data that you would normally burn to watch a particular video. However, with that mode enabled you will be viewing a "lightweight" version of the clip.
Google tells us that over one billion hours of video is viewed on Chrome each week, with many of those hours spent watching on mobile devices. To improve the experience, Google has prepared this update for Android users. If release 52 hasn't hit your phone, you can go to the Google Play Store and tap on the hamburger menu in the top left corner. Click on My apps & games, and scroll down to see if the Chrome update has arrived. If it has, tap on the screen to install it.
If you want to see some of the improvements that this update is bringing to Chrome's Android users, click on the video at the top of the story.
