Google has today announced the roll out of their new beta release of Chrome 34 for Android devices, which brings with it new features, tweaks, crash fixes and performance improvements, including battery usage optimisations.
The new beta Chrome for Android is now available to download directly from the Google Play Store and Google has enabled Chromecast support to the Chrome browser for Android.
Currently the beta version of Chrome browser is just an experimental release and allows you to send embedded video clips to Google’s Chromecast media device. Removing the need for you to launch a native application on your Android device to watch media on your large screen TV.
At the current time support for YouTube and Vimeo is fairly robust but unfortunately Google does need to work on the support for additional sites which at the moment is still a little flaky.
“The Chrome Team is excited to announce the beta release of Chrome 34 for Android. Chrome 34.0.1847.36 will be available in Google Play over the next few hours. A partial list of changes in this build is available in the SVN revision log. If you find a new issue, please let us know by filing a bug. More information about Chrome for Android is available on the Chrome site.”
