Chrome Beta for Android updated with Material Design tweaks and simplified sign-in

Google updated its Chrome Beta for Android app today with Material Design elements and “simplified sign-in,” which gives users the ability to have their log-in credentials submitted for Gmail, Maps, Search and other Google websites automatically.

With the latest version installed, you can dive into the Menu – located in the top right hand corner, with three dots stacked vertically – followed by Settings and the option ‘Sign in to Chrome.’ Google will also remember your password for multiple accounts if more than one is stored on your device.

“In addition to having your accounts a click away, your bookmarks, passwords, and other Chrome stuff will be kept in sync across your devices, using the account you choose,” the company added in a blog post.


If none of this sounds particularly enticing to you, Google is also promising some visual tweaks that incorporate its new Material Design language. This isn’t the full-blown revamp expected for ‘Android L‘ later this year, but a tantalizing glimpse at what’s to come. Download the update now if you’re curious.
