Google just update its Chrome app for Android.

The latest version hit Google Play on Wednesday afternoon and notably includes improved scrolling performance, increased responsiveness for pinch-zooming on pages, and faster interactive pages due to V8 javascript engine.

The mobile browser also now allows audio to continue playing in the background when open, except for when the phone is in use, and boasts expanded support for HTML 5 features.

Chrome for iOS might see an update soon, as well, since it hasn’t been tweaked since mid-December.
