Google has released its Chrome version 46 for desktop computers a few weeks back and it seems that the big search engine company has decided to release the same version for the iOS devices, which comes with two new features: iOS 9 multitasking on iPads and autofill.

The Chrome 46 can be installed on your iOS device directly from the Apple Store.

Chrome 46 For iOS: What’s New?

Using the new Chrome 46 version on your iOS device, you will be able to enable the split view feature, which allows you to run Chrome beside any other iOS application that has been updated and supports this feature. At the same time, the picture-in-picture feature allows you to view videos in a smaller separate window, while using a second application.

However, we remind you that these features will only work on Apple tablets such as iPad Air 2, iPad Pro or iPad Mini 4. Google has tried to explain that nowadays everyone wants to do multitasking and that’s why the company added the split view support on its application.

At the same time, the Chrome version for iOS has also received the Autofill feature that was only available for the Chrome version for Android, Mac, Windows and Linux. This feature was already available for the operating systems we’ve mentioned above for a few years already.

The Autofill feature will help you fill in any information you’ve entered before, so you won’t need to specify your name, credit card information etc. This feature will most likely help you shop faster than before, so you won’t need to look for your credit card every time you want to make a new online purchase.

According to the change log, the Chrome 46 for iOS also comes with improved handling of RTL languages. RTL stands for “right to left”, which refers to languages that are read from the right to the left.
