Google is today rolling out Chrome 40 for iOS and with it introducing a redesigned UI, OS X Handoff support, and optimizations for iOS 8 and the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
Google is giving the entire app for both iPhone and iPad an overhaul based on its new “Material Design” design language introduced with its latest Android release. That includes “bold graphics, fluid motion, and tactile surfaces,” according to Google.
The updated app also gains support for Apple’s Handoff feature, which allows users to pick up where they left off in one app in another on OS X. The Chrome iOS app now supports “handoff from Chrome to your default browser on OS X.”
Version 40 of Chrome for iOS also brings optimizations for iOS 8 and the larger screens of the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
