Chrome is one of the most popular web browsers out there and since many of us use multiple devices these days it’s common to use a browser of choice across all of those devices. If your browser of choice happens to be Google Chrome and you own an iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus then you’ll be delighted to find out that a beta version of Chrome for iOS has been released which brings support for the 3D Touch feature that’s as yet exclusive to Apple’s 2015 iPhones.
The beta version is not being distributed via the App Store, the update will only arrive there when its out of beta, for now it’s available through TestFlight which enables app developers to allow people to test their apps. TestFlight was acquired by Apple some time back.
If you’re interested in trying out Chrome for iOS beta which features support for 3D Touch first register at TestFlight and then download the app. It’s a painless process that doesn’t take more than a few minutes after which you will receive a notification from TestFlight letting you know that the app is ready for download on your device.
3D Touch will let you hard press on the Chrome icon on the iPhone’s home screen, this will bring up a menu that for now has three options, allowing you to quickly initiate a Voice Search, open a New Tab or a New Incognito Tab without first having to launch the app.
It shouldn’t be long though for this update to be out from the beta channel and distributed en masse via the App Store.
