Google announced back in August that Chrome 55 which launched this December and that HTML 5 would replace Flash as the default choice. But Chrome 55 for Android will take this experience further. It will now feature Downloads which allows you to save web pages, video, music among others for further viewing offline. In a blog post yesterday, Google says the release will feature the following;
- Easily download music, videos, and even full web pages for viewing offline
- View and share your downloads within Chrome
- See misspelled words highlighted in text fields
- Improvements to contextual search UI
Users will now see the new feature at the top of the menu and it’s not clear when this feature will come to Chrome for iOS yet.
Memory usage efficiency also comes with the new update to Chrome on Android. Devices with low RAM will see up to 35 percent less memory usage.
