Google releases Chrome Beta for iOS testers

Google Brings Chrome Beta to iOS through TestFlight

The beta version of Google’s mobile browser for iPhone, iPad comes with 3D Touch support.

Google has released a beta version of Chrome app for iOS users, expanding its beta and development channels even further with the addition of iPhone and iPad to the list. The tech giant has even added 3D Touch support to the beta version of the mobile browser that users can try through Apple’s TestFlight developer tool.

The 3D Touch lets you open a new tab, start a voice search, or open a new incognito tab by hard-pressing the Chrome home screen icon. This feature works only on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, as only these handsets meet the hardware and software requirements for running 3D Touch.

In order to try out the exciting new features in Chrome beta for iOS devices, you have to first get yourself registered for TestFlight from the App Store, and then go to the company’s dedicated Chrome beta page and hit the download button. You will first receive an email confirming your registration, after which you will be directed to the app for downloading.

The beta version of Chrome also has additional new features, including support for more keyword shortcuts.

It is the first time Google is offering developers access to in-test beta features on iOS platform. Previously it only introduced development channels for other platforms, including Android, Windows, Mac and Linux.
