Chrome 40 for iOS brings browser Handoff support, Material Design UI

20 January 2015, Mike Williams

Google Chrome for iOSGoogle has today announced the release of Chrome 40 for iOS.

The big addition to version 40.0.2214.61 is Handoff support, which enables mobile users to continue from Chrome to their default browser on OS X.

Elsewhere, an interface revamp gives this release a full Material Design-based look, which the official release notes suggest means “bold graphics, fluid motion, and tactile surfaces”.

Chrome 40 for iOS

Chrome 40 brings a visual revamp, but Handoff support is the big news

The release brings optimisations for iOS 8 and improved support for larger phones, reportedly the iPhone 6. (This was first supported back in Chrome 38, so presumably it’s just been tweaked to deliver better results.)

Chrome 40 for iOS also includes the usual selection of “stability improvements and bug fixes”.

The release is available now in the App Store.
