Chrome for Android v26 comes with password and autofill data syncing for mobile devices. The features were previously available for beta users. The app now syncs the autofill and password data stored on the PC, allowing integration of the browser on both mobile and PCs.

Besides syncing feature, the update comes with several other features as well. Scrolling has been made smoother while pinch-to-zoom is said to be more respectively. Interactive pages have also been made faster. Also, Chrome for Android now supports HTML5 features, while audio will play even if Chrome is in the background.
