Google Chrome for iOS 37.0.2062.60 (iPad screenshot 001)

The Internet giant Google on Tuesday issued a small update to its Chrome for iOS browser, adding better support for the “Retina HD” iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus screens.

The free download also enables another interesting feature — the ability to download and open files directly in the Google Drive application, if installed on your device. Finally, this release includes customary bug fixes and stability improvements.

Google Chrome is available free in the App Store.

Last month, Chrome for iOS received timely support for App Extensions in the multi-purpose systemwide iOS 8 Share menu, following an emergency fix soon after iOS 8 launched for public consumption.

Google Chrome 38.0.2125.59 changelog:

  • Better support for iPhone 6.
  • Download and open files in Google Drive.
  • Stability improvements and bug fixes.

In addition to Chrome, Google today updated YouTube for the iPhone and iPad with a fix for the “Add to Playlist” issue, along with a few other minor bugs.

And just yesterday, the search monster refreshed Gmail for iOS with support for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus display sizes and previously rebranded the Currents app as Google Play Newsstand.

Google Chrome is a free download in the App Store.

    if only they would update youtube to actually fit the 6 we would be good to go…. even tho making it fit the big screen is the LEAST of the problems with the YT app it would make it that much better i think…

      You tube just got a update 2day but was just bug fix..??

      • JS3

        yea i know and we will see how it goes but i bet money it doesnt fix the playback problems…. sometimes the app will play videos fine and other times its complete shit and just sits on loading. on my ipad mini w/retina in my house, in front of my router that has 30 meg down internet, it will NOT play 1080p video no matter if its 30 seconds or 30 mins. the shit is broken for me….

      • Fevostone

        I never have a problem with that pal works every time you sure its not ur internet of WiFi problem..? I have virgin media 100meg

        and having to go in and change the res settings on every single video is biotch and shouldnt have to happen….

      • HooDatty

        This is exactly what has happened with the android version of the app with the latest update. Impossible to watch videos unless resorting to downgrading the resolution to 360p or under. Meanwhile. Using the browser is fine.

        Luckily, this haven’t happened on my ios devices (yet)…

    Safari is my default browser, so this update doesn’t concern me. Hopefully Youtube & Google Search app is is up next..

      Youtube app is so bad! i have tried alot of apps. My facortie was Mctube but the dev removed the cache feature which sucks and Mxtube just copies the Mctube so same thing. Tried Protube it is the worst, the dev doesnt listen to your requests. so at the moment i’m stuck with the Youtube app and i hate how it all works but i just gave up lol. The way to close the video is just 2 steps more than how much easiernit is to just tap the back button. Google could seriously do wayyy better.

      • Al

        Yeah, I tolerate the YouTube app only because of when people send me links it directs me to the app. I wish there was a way to configure it to go any default YouTube client, but I had purchased UltraTube Pro and it supports iPhone 6/6+. It also does background audio…

      • Straw hat

        Does ultratube have cache? Because i just tried the free version and theres this offline feature idk what it does because i disabled my wifi and tried to play it offline it didnt.

      • Al

        Not sure if it has cache.. Most YouTube clients apps end up abandoning due to Google policies. I think the Pro Version only offers no ads.. I don’t see any other features..

  • Jamessmooth

    Looks SOOO much better now on my 6+!

    I wish they would make Chrome like Safari. Need to be able to swipe to go back instead of switching between pages. Even on the OSX Chrome browser you can swipe to go back.

    • Gary32283

      or at least put the back arrow at the bottom of the app.

    Google Currents was my favourite news app. Does anyone knows any news app that you can read offline? Preferably customisable too

    Question is anyone can answer does this update support Nitro JavaScript

    • s0me

      You can ask(mail) the dev of Nitro, I asked him something a few months back and he replied in no time.

      • Daniel

        Did you ask them this time? If not, what’s is the address to send them and email…. We all should love to know if nitro support has already been added or not. And if not, when is it coming…

      • s0me

        You can contact de dev from Cydia, I dont have a jailbroken device anymore.

      • GuyBey0ndC00L

        Apple is now allowing all apps can now use the Nitro Engine in iOS8. No jailbreak is needed. I don’t see now asking the developer of Cydia (Nitro) will help.

      • s0me

        You are right! I tought you were talking about the jailbreak tweak my bad.

  • Antzboogie

    Google Chrome is very smooth on my iPhone 6 Plus looks amazing as well.
