After testing pre-orders for books on Google Play, after updating Google Drive to support spreadsheet editing on mobile, and after adding more supported languages on YouTube, the Mountain View-based technology behemoth is also announcing that it has updated Chrome app for iOS. Perhaps, the best feature of version 23.0.1271.91 is Passbook integration. This simply means that iOS users can now save their boarding passes and tickets from the mobile browser.
Essentially Chrome will prompt users to add a ticket or a boarding pass to the Passbook app, provided that the website supports it. The new Chrome version now also lets users open PDF files in other apps. There’s also the capability to turn on text encoding detection in the settings menu and a slew of security and stability enhancements. As with other updates, it’s also customary for Google to include a couple of bug fixes. If you haven’t downloaded the new version yet, you can get it here.
