Chrome for iOS updated with better voice search and data savings

Google’s popular Chrome browser for iOS has been updated to version 29.0.1547.11. It brings improvements to search, bandwidth management and voice search too.

The change with search results is a good one. Now when you search, after you click on a link you can tap back to see your search results instantly. They don’t have to be reloaded, which is more efficient in terms of time and data.

There are new Bandwidth Management settings too, to allow you to see how much data you are saving in Chrome. However, this is ‘being rolled out and will be available to all users over time’, so you may not see it yet.

Voice search has been improved by adding ‘pronoun support’. That’s not just geeky grammar: it means you can now search saying things like “Who is Kim Kardashian?” and “Who is her husband?”.
