Google Chrome is planning to switch to 64-bit on Android soon

AlbertflexAlbertflex in July 04, 2020

Bravo, finally Google Chrome is switching to a 64-bit platform application. For Android users this was a long overdue upgrade that people have been waiting for. If you are wondering how important this is, just know that 64-bit allows for better performance of a smartphone. 

Android users can now ease their minds as the time has finally come because our friends at  Android Police reported that Google Chrome might be switching to 64-bit on Android pretty soon.

This is also because Google Chrome Dev and Canary versions have already switched to 64-bit versions meaning that next up in line is Chrome Beta which is a stable version compared to Dev or Canary while Canary is the least stable. On the other hand, the regular Google Chrome will switch to 64-bit only a month or more after Chrome Beta gets it so the wait will be longer.

But this will be great for anyone who has a 64-bit device because Chrome will now support it natively rather than running 32-bit Chrome even on phones that support 64-bit apps. The reason why 64-bit is important is that a 64-bit CPU “can process a larger set of data when compared to a 32-bit processor, while also being faster and more responsive” as per AA’s report.

At the moment, Chrome’s Canary and Dev versions running on 64-bit only support devices running Android 10 and forward meaning that 64-bit Chrome is unlikely to run on Android 9 later on too. Having said that, Google has made a rule that each and every app on the Play Store “must be updated to 64-bit by August 1, 2021” meaning that 64-bit Chrome for everyone might come next year. It is also reported that the plan is for “Chrome 85 to go stable in August” which comes with a 64-bit version so we might not have to wait long before getting to use the same.

This is a switch. That is changing to a more larger processor. Well, that's okay, but those phones that don't support it has to be changed too, if not directly.

If they think it would be best for them then there is no problem updating chrome. But they should consider others whose phone do not support 64bits

At last!! I don't like the responsiveness of the former Chrome. The problem now is that it support devices running Android 10.

Wow, I love this development, it will enable one process a largi set of data which always takes one to a cyber cafe. The little challenge is my smart phone may not have the capacity for it. No problem when we get to the bridge we must always find a way to cross it

If they think upgrading to 64-bit is the best way to go, they should go ahead and do it but first reconsider those andriod users with low bit system....

HomogeniusHomogenius in Jul 09, 2020 Reply

This is a really strong move, lots of users Wont be able to access some app updates like what happened when Apple switched to 64-bit

It is a great improvement though. But it should be noted that not all phones will be compatible with it... Really a strong step taken. Kudos

Yeah I think this update is very good and it will help a lot but what will happen to android users with low version .

It will make a hail of sense but let it not slow phones and make it compatible to all Android phone and faster.
