Chrome Beta for Android has been bumped up to version 28, bringing along several new features for users of the browser on smartphones and tablets. The most notable addition to Chrome for Android 28.0.1500.21 is the Google Translate translation bar. Just as is the case with the desktop version of Chrome, when you navigate to a foreign language page on your phone or tablet you will now be given the option to translate the page to your native tongue.

Additionally, Chrome 28 brings fullscreen mode to tablets and support for fullscreen API. It also comes with a nifty new graph to showcase bandwidth savings when using the browser’s experimental data compression mode. This, of course, is on top of the usual bug fixes and tweaks you would expect in a Chrome update. The full changelog can be found at the Chromium project site.
