In a Google+ post by the Chrome team, we should hopefully be seeing an alignment of all Chrome versions – including Android – by early next year:
Q. Chrome for Android is still at v18, while regular Chrome is at v23. When will Chrome for Android catch up?
A. Soon! We expect an update to Chrome for Android starting with a developer update to happen before the end of the year, and we’re actively working towards aligning releases across all platforms, including Android, starting early next year.
So, if you’re tired of your mobile Chrome being ages behind your desktop version, then a little bit of patience *should* pay off. Hopefully, we’ll start seeing some other features align across platforms as well soon enough.
You can download Chrome for Android via this link to the Play Store.
