Chrome for Android has been updated to version 29, adding support for WebRTC, which enables video and voice communication directly in the browser without a plugin.

The highlight feature in this release is support for WebRTC, which is an open web standard for video and audio communication via the browser. Web app support is still limited, but the Chrome browser is ready for future developments of the web.

In addition, support for WebAudio has been added, allowing developers to process and synthesise audio in web applications.

Minor visual improvements have been made to the app as well. There is now a visual indication when scrolling to the top or bottom of a page – a burst of glowing light like other applications in Android. There is also a new colour picker UI for web forms.

You can find today’s update in the Google Play Store. Chrome requires Android 4.0+ to use.
