Chrome for Android is still not the perfect browser we want it to be, but Google is taking it there with every update. Google has started rolling out a new update for its browser, making it much funner and convenient to surf the web while on-the-go. This update brings improved gestures, which are a huge part of a touchscreen, mobile experience.

The update brings 3 simple, but very useful features. You will be able to use these features anytime, while using Chrome, so the experience should be rather smooth.

What new gestures does Chrome for Android feature?

  • Swipe horizontally across toolbar (top) to switch tabs.
  • Swipe down from the toolbar to access tab switcher.
  • Tap menu and drag finger down. Menu will appear and you can lift your finger in your selection.


The update should be rolling out within the “next few days,” along with a desktop Chrome browser update. That one will feature the all-new “search by image”, which you might want to check out as well. It allows you to right click any image and find search results related to it. Pretty awesome, right?
