Google today updated its Chrome app for iOS with two new nifty features, one plugged security hole, as well as the usual stability improvements and bug fixes. You can download the new version now directly from Apple’s App Store.
First and foremost, the browser now supports the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus displays. You can now properly use the extra screen real-estate on the new iOS 8 devices. The awful scaling up from the 4-inch default on older iPhones is now gone.
The second feature is a smaller one, but it applies to all iOS users: You can now download and open files in Google Drive. If you stumble on a file hosted in Google’s cloud while browsing the Web, Chrome will now help you view it without any issue.
