Google Chrome for Android to be Out of Beta in Weeks

April 25, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Google is preparing one of the most popular web browsers from its stable – Google Chrome – to suit its popular smartphone and tablet platform, Android.

The browser on Android platform will complete its beta testing stage in a matter of weeks, according to official sources in Google who is working on the browser app.

The revelation actually came out from Sundar Pichai, Senior Vice President of Chrome and Apps who in an interview said that the browser app will soon graduate from its beta stage.

The announcement comes in the backdrop of the search giant rolling out their second Chrome for Android update recently. The new update allows users to go through the desktop version of a web page. It also allows users to add bookmarks to the browser app’s home page.

As per the words from the horse’s mouth in the Google, the work on the features and performance of the Chrome app for Android is almost finished and only the polishing and bug fixes are remaining. The App team is now tracking and fixing bugs they find during the beta phase, trying to make the app more stable when it comes out of the beta stage, in matter of weeks.

With all the hints, it is possible that we find the graduated version of Chrome for Android in May, which makes the beta testing of the app to have a faster three months time or so, since when its first beta form was introduced in February.

However, presently, the app runs only on devices that run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We feel that is sad for many who are yet to join the ICS party.
