Google announced today on its Chrome Releases blog that Chrome for Android Beta has been updated to version 0.16.4301.233 (that's Chrome 16.0.912.77 for anyone counting).

The update primarily brings bug fixes, specifically addressing "issues in the compatibility check which prevented Chrome from starting up on some versions of Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich." In other words, whatever it is that broke compatibility with custom ROMs in Chrome's previous update seems to have been eliminated this time around.

While there's no official change log available for the update just yet, Google does list remaining known bugs:

  • 112923 : No way to toggle between mobile/desktop UA
  • 113140 : Youtube links do not prompt for which application to use
  • 113132 : Chrome for Android beta doesn't support configured proxy in wi-fi settings
  • Other notable issues listed here

Google also urges users to report new issues by filing a bug report. For more information, and to stay on top of future Chrome updates, just hit the source link below.
