Following the release of Chrome 31 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android last week, Google today released version 31 of its browser for iOS. You can download the latest version now directly from Apple’s App Store.
The main addition is undoubtedly Autofill, which lets you quickly complete Web forms by syncing your information from your computer to your iOS device. Google first detailed the Autofill feature for iOS last week, but only released it today.
We noted at the time that Chrome for Android was updated with autofill and password syncing some seven months ago. While the feature means you will have to be signed-in with the same account across platforms, it saves a lot of time filling in the same data over and over, including your name, surname, telephone number, and so on.
Here’s the full Chrome 31.0.1650.18 for iOS changelog:
- Fast form completion with Autofill: Tired of filling out web forms with the same information time and time again? The Autofill feature lets you complete forms with just a few clicks. Sign in to sync this data from your computer to your iPhone or iPad and save even more typing.
- Long press on an image to search for related images.
- Stability / security improvements and bug fixes.
This isn’t a big release, and frankly we don’t expect to see Chrome for iOS get many new features given Apple’s stringent rules and Google’s plans with Blink. Nevertheless, we’re happy to be proven wrong.
