Google has begun rolling out a new update for its Chrome Beta app, we are now on version number 45, which brings some new features and tweaks to Google’s mobile browser.

Perhaps the biggest change comes with the introduction of Chrome Custom Tabs, which allows apps to open up tabs as part of their own software. This is said to be useful for securing your passwords and passing data straight into Chrome. The feature was first announced for Android M at Google I/O earlier in the year.

As part of Chrome Beta 45, Google has also updated the bookmark interface and media playback controls within the browser. There is also improved logging for feedback reports, along with a selection of bug fixes and improvements designs to speed up the browser.

The update is now available to download directly from the Google Play Store. You can see all of the little changes over at the Git log.
