Google Quietly Announced Chrome Beta For iOS
It's no question that Google's ubiquitous internet browser is one of the most essential apps to any platform, be it mobile or desktop. With its fast rendering performance, clean user-interface and syncing capabilities for cross-platform use, Google Chrome is easily one of the most downloaded apps to date. Now, the search engine giant wants to share something more to users on the iOS platform as it quietly launches Chrome Beta for iOS with neat features, including support for Apple's innovative 3D Touch as well as minor tweaks.
Google Chrome Beta delivers a wave of new features and improvements, but the most notable addition is the support for Apple's 3D Touch that's seen in Cupertino's iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Pressing hard on the Chrome icon will display a couple of access to common tasks such as opening a new tab, switching to incognito mode and starting voice search. Other than that, Google has also added Bluetooth keyboard support for a new set of shortcuts such as opening, closing or changing apps as well as quick access to voice search.
To sign up for the beta version of Google Chrome on iOS, users on the platform will have to download the app first from Google's beta download page. Afterwards, they can enter their email address and wait until they receive an email with a link to download the app through Apple's TestFlight.
Usually, the TestFlight service is only limited to a pool of 2,000 users per app. However, it seems that both Google and Apple are allowing to make room for more users to jump into the test group as there is no mention of how much the service can accommodate.
Google has long offered beta and development channels for several of its applications and programs in major platforms such as Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. Now the company's development channel has arrived on iOS, thereby expanding the search engine giant's reach further.
