Google has opened up a new channel for experimental release version of Chrome Canary for Android. It is now also possible to obtain the Canary builds, in which new features are tested first.
Not a stable browser
“Just like the Canary channel for other platforms, new versions are built from the most recent code available and often contain a variety of new features, enhancements, and bug fixes.”
Wrote Google in a blog post.
“These builds are shipped automatically with no manual testing, which means that the build can be unstable and may even stop working entirely for days at a time.”
Nevertheless, it is the aim of the Chrome team to make the Canary app usable at all times. Fixing major issues is the priority.
Updating the app
Initially, the Android app will be updated every day. In the future, there may also appear new builds at the weekend. Updating the Chrome Canary app costs usually more than 100MB of data traffic per week, warns Google.
On Android, the dev channel of Chrome was available to download since last year; which is the second-earliest test version of the browser. Up to now, the Canary builds were not available on the mobile operating system. Though there were already Canary builds for Windows and Mac.
