Google Chrome update to the latest version

We are often asked how the Google Chrome browser should actually be updated to the latest version . We would like to explain this in this short guide, because it is actually very simple.

A Google Chrome update to perform, you have two options. Either you call the URL in the URL line

chrome: // settings / help

or you click on the 3 vertical dots in the top right corner of your Chrome browser and then choose


and then

Via Google Chrome

We have marked the individual steps accordingly in the following illustration.

The Google Chrome browser then automatically starts to search for the latest update and shows this with

Check for updates …

Below you can see the currently installed Google Chrome version and whether it is a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Chrome.

If the Chrome has found a newer version, it will automatically start installing the latest Chrome update without asking .

After installing the latest version of Google Chrome, the browser acknowledges this with the message:

Almost there! Restart Google Chrome to complete the update. Incognito windows will not be reopened.

After clicking

Start anew

all windows are closed and Chrome is restarted. If you had previously opened several websites, these will be opened again after the update. Only the incognito windows are not called up again.

Then the Google Chrome is already up to date . In our example, the Chrome has been updated to the latest version 80.0.3987.116.

As a rule, the update from Chrome only takes a few seconds and you should check from time to time whether a new Google Chrome version is available.
