Chrome for iOS updated, brings “interoperability with other Google Apps” and more

Google Chrome LogoChrome for iOS has been updated to version 28.0.1500.12 (I still don’t understand the long version numbers), and brings with it a host of new features and improvements. One of the improvements is the ability to open links in other Google applications, such as Maps, YouTube, Drive, and more. Here is the full list of improvements from the App Store:

What’s New in Version 28.0.1500.12

• Interoperability with other Google Apps
◦ Option to open links for YouTube, Maps, G+ and Drive in the app instead of the browser.
• Enhancements to voice search
◦ Text-to-speech for all variations of English, Spanish, German, Italian, French, Japanese, and Korean.
◦ Toolbar controls are always available when using voice search
• Fullscreen on iPad
• Data cost savings
◦ Reduce data usage and speed up page load times.  View data savings in Bandwidth Management settings.  This feature is being rolled out and will be available to all users over time.  
• Access to browser history
• Stability / security improvements and bug fixes

As you can see, there is a whole list of things that have been updated. Full screen has come to iPad, the new interoperability features, and more. Something that has been added that was interesting to see absent before is access to the browser’s history. Many users are sure to find that, any the other new features useful. Get the app for free here if you don’t have it already: Chrome.

    Well, it does seem to be faster, though its still a two step process to see bookmark.  Safari has the bookmarks menu right at the bottom.
