Chrome for iOS receives Material Design makeover and support for Handoff

Quite a long time after the Android version of Chrome got its Material Design makeover, it’s now finally time for the iOS iteration to get the same treatment. Google has published a new version of Chrome in the iTunes App Store today, and the main new feature it comes with is Material Design.

But that’s not all. Aside from now adhering to Google’s newest design guidelines, Chrome for iOS also got optimized for iOS 8 and received support for bigger phones.

Additionally, the browser now supports Apple’s Handoff feature, letting you pick up your browsing where you left off, syncing sessions between iOS and Mac OS X. So you can start reading something in Chrome for iOS, and then continue in Safari for Mac (or any other Mac browser, as long as you’ve made it your default).

Of course the usual bug fixes and stability improvements are said to be in the update as well, though as always they shall remain unnamed. Chrome 40.0.2214.61 is compatible with iOS 7 and later, and it works on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices alike.
