How can I know if I have the latest version of the browser?

The browser developed by Google has new functions with each update.

We have frequently shown the advancements of Google Chrome to its users, whether from new functions, to recent limitations that come with each version that the American company releases.

However, for the user, it remains as a task to identify if they have the latest version of Google’s browser so that in this way you can access the new functions.

To know if you have the most recent version of Google you must do the following step by step:

Identify Google version

The Google blog explains that updates take place in the background when you close and reopen your computer’s browser. But if you haven’t closed the browser for a while, you may see a pending update:

On your computer, open Chrome.
In the upper right corner, look at More More.
If there is a pending update, the icon will have a different color:
Green: An update was posted less than 2 days ago.
Orange: An update was released about 4 days ago.
Red: An update was posted at least a week ago.

To update Google Chrome:

On your computer, open Chrome.
In the upper right corner, click More More.
Click Update Google Chrome.
Important: If you cannot find this button, it means that you are using the most recent version.
Click Restart.
The browser will save open tabs and windows and automatically reopen them when it restarts. Your incognito windows won’t reopen when Chrome restarts. If you’d rather not restart your browser immediately, click Not now. The next time you restart it, the update will be applied.

Update from mobile device

Chrome should update automatically based on your Play Store settings. You can check if there is a new version available:

On your Android phone or tablet, open the Play Store Google Play app.
In the upper left corner, tap Menu Menu and then My apps and games.
Under « Updates, » look for Chrome Chrome.
Next to Chrome, tap Update
