Google Chrome is automatically updated on your Android phone by default. However, you can run a manual update check to find and install the latest updates. You can also enable the automatic updates option if it is disabled. We’ll show you how.
Just like updating Chrome on a desktop, you need an active internet connection on your Android phone. This is because the browser updates are downloaded from the internet.

Update Chrome on Android Phones and Tablets
To start the Chrome update process, launch Google Play Store on your Android phone.
Tap the Play Store search box, type “Google Chrome” (without quotes) and press Enter. Then choose “Google Chrome” from the search results.
Tap “Update” on Chrome’s app page to update the browser.
If you don’t see the Update button, your Chrome version is already up to date and you don’t need to do anything.
Turn on the automatic updates option to let Chrome automatically check for and install updates in the future. To do this, on the Chrome app page, tap the three dots in the top right corner.
If the box is not checked, activate the option “Enable automatic updates”.
And that’s all.
With the updated version of Chrome, you now have the latest bug fixes, new features and general performance improvements. Enjoy an enhanced web browser on your device!
If you’re trying to troubleshoot a problem with Chrome and the issue is still unresolved, consider forcing an update to the Google Play Store itself or updating Google Play Services.
