Google Chrome for iOS To Add Data Compression & Translation Tools



Google announced today that they will release an update for the Chrome web browser for iOS, bringing data compression functionality that can reduce data usage by up to 50%. The update will be rolling out “over the next few days” and it will also bring a translation bar that will automatically offer to translate pages into the user’s language ( similar to what Chrome offers on the desktop version ). We will let you know as soon as the update will be available for download. Stay tuned…

To start saving data and turn on an even more secure browsing experience, visit “Settings” > “Bandwidth management” > “Reduce data usage.” Then simply turn the toggle to “On.” From this menu, you’ll also be able to track how much bandwidth you save each month as you browse on Chrome.

Chrome for iOS is available for free as an universal app ( iPhone and iPad ) on the App Store
