To line up with the Chrome 35 desktop release, Google today also updated Chrome for Android with a bevy of new features. You can download the new version now directly from Google Play.

Here’s the full Chrome 35 for Android changelog:

  • Undo Tab Close.
  • Fullscreen video with subtitles and HTML5 controls.
  • Support for some multi-window devices.
  • Support for casting some videos with Chromecast.
  • Other bug fixes.

Being able to undo the action of closing a tab will be useful to all users, as well fullscreen video improvements. Yet it’s the Web video support for the Chromecast that will lead to the most excitement: Google won’t say exactly which clips will work, so you’ll have to test to see yourself which content you can send from your Android device to your TV.
