Google has updated its Chrome web browser for Android that now has improved responsiveness along with addition of new features. The update can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. The big deal with the update is that Google has added background audio support, which will allow music playing via Chrome to run in the background even if someone has switched an app. Also Read - Easter egg!

Moreover, the audio playing in the background can also be paused while receiving a call or for different purposes. This feature is more or less similar to Safari on iOS, which also supports audio in the background while switching between apps.
The updated Chrome browser also offers improved scrolling performance as well as a better responsiveness for pinch to zoom on pages, which will make it even better to use on mobile devices.
