Google Chrome is Google’s internet browsing solution. The software is available on both PC and mobile platforms and is considered the best choice on both. Having Chrome as your default browser surely presents its perks but if you don’t keep the app updated it will stop performing as well and over time, as more updates that you don’t install roll out, you will notice that Chrome will be more and more sluggish.
You can prevent that by making sure Chrome is always updated, even when you don’t have an internet connection. Some might say that lacking an internet connection on your phone will completely stop you from updating an app, but that’s not the case. Here’s how to update Google Chrome on your phone through an APK file.
- Download the APK file for the latest Google Chrome build. Make sure you download from a secure and trustworthy source so that you avoid unpleasant surprises.
- Copy the APK file into your device, in a place in your local storage that you will remember.
- When you are ready to actually install the update, navigate to that location on your phone and tap the application.
- This will start the installation process, and after a couple screens where you just have to agree to the terms, the installation process will start.
- Once that’s finished, you will have the latest version of Google Chrome installed on your mobile device, without even needing internet.
- Most Android phones will not allow people to install applications that are not from Google’s Play Store (at least not by default). Make sure to enable “Unknown Sources” in your phone’s settings so that your phone will allow you to install the APK file.
- Once everything is done, make sure to open Google Chrome and check to see if the latest build is the one that is installed.
