New Chrome for Android requires a lot of RAM

Google has released a 64-bit version of Chrome for Android devices. The new build of the browser has become not only faster, but also more demanding on the hardware. In particular, to run it, you will need an impressive amount of RAM and a relatively fresh version of the operating system.

The update is available only for smartphones with at least 8 GB of RAM and running Android 10 and newer. If the device supports all of the above requirements, the user can easily check if Chrome has updated on their device. To do this, enter “chrome: // version” in the address bar of the browser and press Enter.

The advantages of 64-bit applications include improved performance due to the use of more RAM, improved security, lower power consumption and support for functions not available on 32-bit devices.

Back in 2019, Google put forward a requirement for developers to support 32-bit and 64-bit architecture applications for Android devices. In August of this year, only 64-bit applications will be uploaded to Google Play. Existing 32-bit builds will remain available for download, but high-end ARM processors will only support 64-bit programs.
