Google just announced the availability of version 35 of Chrome, the default browser on many Android devices and one of the most popular mobile browsers around.

Chrome 35.0.1916.122 is now available in the Play Store, and brings several new features and bug fixes, of which the native support for multi-window functionality may be the most important. Google’s announcement post doesn’t specify what these devices are; Samsung, for instance, already supported Chrome on the Galaxy S5, Note 3, TabPRO series, and other devices, but the feature should make life easier for other OEMs looking to add multi-window support to their devices.

Another neat feature is the ability to reopen a tab you accidentally closed, just like you can on the desktop with the Ctrl-Shift-T shortcut. It’s a small, but thoughtful touch.

Subtitles and HTML5-based controls in full screen mode are now supported and Google extended the ability to cast more types of videos. An assortment of bug fixes applied in the update can be checked out here.

Head over to the Play Store to install Chrome for Android or fire up the Play Store app on your device to check for an update.
