chromebeta androidIt seems as though Google is working to roll out the latest version of its Chrome web browser for Android, where there will be new features that include support for full screen video alongside subtitles, not to mention HTML5 controls as well as the ability to re-open tabs that you have closed recently. This new update will be made available first to Chrome Beta users, where it ought to eventually arrive on the stable version of Chrome for Android.

For desktop users of the Chrome web browser, you would know that you have had the ability to undo the close tab command for the longest time, but in Chrome for Android, that particular feature is sadly missing from the mix. It would have been nice if that feature had been thrown in right from the get go, since retracing one’s steps is not all that much fun in the first place.

Of course, the latest Chrome beta for Android update will also come with other features including support for select devices that have multi-window features, as well as support for casting some videos from the Chrome browser to a Chromecast. It is nice to see Google do their part to bring up the mobile web browser on par – or at least, try to, with the desktop version. [Press Release]
