Options don’t work
by Black-1LE on 2021/10/25 08:18
Turning trending searches off does absolutely nothing. I still see a huge list of suggestions when I open to search. If you are going to have this option available at least make it work correctly.
Links have stopped working on iPhone
by Rebecca7694 on 2021/10/25 01:35
Chrome was a great browser on iPhone until recently all links within the app stopped working. I’ve tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but the problem persists.

I can’t login to anything on Chrome and after I deleted and redownload the app, the bug is still there and my recent tabs with today search history completely gone, this is making me really annoying.
Slower than on Mac, overheats my iPhone 13 pro
by JDfromTN99 on 2021/10/24 04:44
Why when I push the microphone on the widget to search does it take like 3 seconds to be able to voice search. Also makes my phone feel like a tiny pocket heater after a few minutes of use. What is going on Google??

No show reviews
by Joggboy on 2021/10/24 00:51
I like to share my POV on reviews but as of lately I am unable to post reviews. The reviews do not show up on the business being reviewed. I have tried countless attempts to get the review to be posted…with no success. Google Maps use to be a breeze with reviews..now it’s almost as if your google account has to be an older account for any reviews to show. Even if the account is made with a phone number, the review does not show 👎👎👎

Google chrome does not let me sign in
by shiwnxao on 2021/10/23 18:01
Ok I love google chrome but it’s so buggy why does the app not let me sign in??? I try to sign in to YouTube but it just doesn’t work. I also try other websites that need me to enter my email but it still doesn’t work. I’ve tried re downloading checking if it needs updates but it still doesn’t work.
Bad.

Links only work occasionally

Latest update has thoroughly broken this browser. Links almost never work now unless you press and hold for a new tab (and then it’s 50/50).
Can’t access other chrome profiles
by Mevans87 on 2021/10/23 12:11
I have multiple Google accounts for different clients. Unlike many Google iOS app, chrome does not support switching your selected Google account. I’m signed in to all of my Google accounts in my phone, but in chrome, I can only access bookmarks and passwords for the “default” account, which just happens to be the first one that I signed in with. Google’s support docs indicate to “switch” the “default” account selected in chrome, I need to log out of my currently “selected” “default” account (I say “selected” since I not not actually select anything - chrome chose for me). The problem with this guidance is that all Google apps on iOS have their login sessions synced. If I sign into 3 Google accounts in Google Drive, they will all 3 be signed in on chrome as well. Vice versa, if I log out of my accounts in chrome, I will get logged out in Drive, which is undesirable.
Crashes all the time
by Leonel dies 4585 on 2021/10/23 00:18
For some reason chrome wants to stop working and just becomes unresponsive i’d rather use safari
Worked great before the update
by Leefoo26 on 2021/10/22 22:26
Now it seems to want to open a new tab EVERY stinking time I open the app. Why would you want to add that feature?
Works very well but odd sign-in issues
by insertnombre on 2021/10/22 21:53
I have had this app for a few months and I love it. That said, a week or so ago, it randomly signed me out of all of my tabs that I had on it, mainly YouTube, and doesn’t work when I try to sign back in. It shows me all the way through the prompt, but never registers afterwards. I know that it’s no my device because Safari has no issue with this. I love this app and will continue to use it, but would like this to be looked into.
This product is stinky
by lexie73 on 2021/10/22 20:27

I am trying to type a comment in the comments section on YouTube but every time I’m in the comment section the video zooms in automatically and zooms out when I exit the comments section. Why is it doing that, please fix it.
Somehow manages to get worse every day
by Aa4bb3cc2dd1 on 2021/10/22 11:33
As if the constant inexplicable crashing wasn’t enough, now it’s not letting me click links or allow me to activate recaptchas for logins on sites that require them. And yes I have “mAdE SUre i aM uPDaTed tO tHe LAteSt vERsIon” What used to be hands down the best browser on the market has over the past 12 months or so become literally worthless and unusable.

Chrome has betrayed end users
by Tealie-o on 2021/10/21 17:45
Chrome is now allowing ‘domain administrators’ full access to users’ settings, extensions, data, etc. I now cannot sync my data across devices due to a work policy and would not want to due to privacy. Multiple monitoring and security extensions were installed without my knowledge, no prompts, no acknowledgement. I will now permanently stop using chrome on ALL devices.
Have it
by Lks58 on 2021/10/21 16:49
Don’t really care for chrome I’ve had it for along time loaded it only when I had a chrome device. No longer have that device haven’t used it since.
Websites
by Rosecal27 on 2021/10/21 04:25
Why in the last two weeks has Chrome decided that websites I have always used, are not secure? Or that they take so long to open that they crash? I'm not doing anything different.

Links not working; Voice typing broken
by Pjvander on 2021/10/19 07:17
Glad I came to the reviews to learn I’m not the only one having problems clicking on links or using voice typing. Come on Google! The ONE thing you should be able to do, beyond searching, is to be able to actually tap the hyperlinks in the search results! JFC.

Dumb rotation behavior
by stevendelarosa on 2021/10/19 00:56
Recent update allows you to use chrome upside down, wow, what a useless feature that you can’t disable. I wonder why the simpletons developing this app thought this was a good idea.
Bad privacy monopoly
by Youwontfreeze on 2021/10/18 22:12
It’s super bad privacy doesn’t run best but Google chrome has convinced every website to use its framework so it’s the recommended one. I tried to delete and use safari but Google def has entrenched itself in the internet ecosystem
i have a question of legality
by sllydell on 2021/10/18 17:50
simply put i always turn off all invasions of privacy google implements in all there data mining attempts. so why do i have to keep turn off this innvasion of privacy when the app updates? i'm not agreeing to allow you to mine my personal information. i'm not agreeing to a new set of terms and services. So my question is why do i have to turn them off again when your app updates? i feel this is illeage and infrigens on my privacy.
Voice to text disappear-like me from chrome !
by Rooooooooooooooo123 on 2021/10/18 15:51
Reviewer Brad Beeman described the issue perfectly! Speech to text search ‘works’ with native iOS keyboard - and then the text disappears before you can actually search! However google microphone searches work..not impressed. Text to speech is an important option!! I have stayed on Chrome for years because of access to all bookmarks, however I think I will have to make a switch to Safari unless issues are fixed where speech to text is not an issue. Also why is dark mode sporadic? When iPhone is in dark mode and all the settings are selected- on many websites it’s still not “dark”.. unless it is website dependent? These issues are disappointing!

New update is terrible
by Frenchrikku on 2021/10/18 07:20
I don’t know what they’ve done to the touch abilities, but now I have the hardest time selecting links in a web page. I have to click on it multiple times. Often, in my frustration or attempt at a double click, I click too many times and end up selecting something on the next page. Then I have to go back one page and load it again. It’s such a time waster. I used to be able to touch ONE time and browse easily. I’ve checked my settings and nothing has changed. I know it’s chrome and the links because typing works just fine still inside and out of the app. Please fix. I use Chrome bc it automatically translates the Japanese pages I have to visit.
Broken links!!
by Its_Rambo on 2021/10/18 01:52
I’ve always chosen Chrome over Safari. It was just better. Now with the latest update , nothing works correctly anymore. Number one, being links.. can’t open anything no matter how you tap it. So I’m finding another browser

Closing tabs
by Toddturtle on 2021/10/17 12:19
Chrome is my browser of choice, but the newest version for my phone makes it nearly impossible to close a tab/page without choosing “close all.” The X is in a ridiculous spot and it’s so small you can’t tap it without opening the page you’re trying to close.
Broken. iOS 15.0.0, 15.0.2 voicing text clears
by BradBeeman on 2021/10/17 03:05
I’m surprised you haven’t fixed the problem we’re pushing the microphone on an iPhone especially the 12 and the 13 is broken. Pushing to make invoicing text types the text but then it disappears when the mic gets deactivated by pushing the mic or somewhere else on the screen when you are done dictating. Fix it. Makes me switch over to Safari to do things so you are missing out on revenue.
Take out the “Deleted all save tabs” opción
by JeanWilson1 on 2021/10/17 01:48
I have use this app for more than 8 years and the opción to delete all tabs has made me so mad “l use it for reading and looking for interesting topics”, is the 8 time it has happened to me that all my tabs where close by acidity when on my pocket and scroll over my tabs if only you add in “are you sure you want to delete all the tabs” yes or no button) every day l use the app and this time l had close to 200 tabs, l still like the app but the problem really got to me this time. 4 star’s but once fix 5 star ezz. Hope you have a best day ever
Latest update problems

Voice issue when searching?
by Maxwell9002 on 2021/10/16 18:27
Tap microphone, say what I want to search for, then nothing happens. If I tap any button at all, the text I’d just spoken disappears. The only way to use is to use keyboard. Will update if I figure out solution.
Recent problems
by Jodeeaway on 2021/10/16 17:04

Not great for IPadOS
by some Rando Name on 2021/10/16 16:02
This app doesn’t take Advantage of iPadOS and serve the mobile version of websites instead of giving a full desktop experience like in Safari. You can set it to request the desktop website but in my experience the websites will be desktop friendly but the whole user interface is just a mobile app blown up for the bigger screen giving the user a less enjoyable experience than the desktop version of chrome that I like a lot more.

by Gheienvjgsignend on 2021/10/14 16:56
I’ve been using Chrome on my iPad for a while now and not had any problems. I don’t know whether it was an update or the new iOS with Apple but the last 2 to 3 weeks it crashes all the time or randomly opens another app or window….I’m officially not going to use it anymore.
Too glitchy.
by Mini-braniac on 2021/10/14 15:41
These updates keep getting worse and worse. I can’t even sign in without it just booting me back to the Home Screen now, still signed out. Also, the app crashes occur a lot more frequently now. Absolutely garbage app.

If I could give 0 stars I would
by nervous breakdown kid_1000 on 2021/10/13 15:40
I normally use chrome on my phone to access google classroom when I need to submit pdfs (as I can scan on my Notes app). However, the day I have a test with an unempathetic teacher, chrome decides to crash. And there she is shouting about how I am taking over ten minutes after the she said time’s up to submit because every time I try to open google classroom chrome makes me sign in (which obviously takes a while) and then after I sign in it leads to me a blank page. I probably repeated this process ten times all the while I messaged the teacher as to why I can’t submit and she’s still going on and on about late submissions. So there I am having a meltdown and the reason she’s rushing us is because SHE has somewhere to go. So I give up on chrome and email my laptop the work and message on my submission why it’s so late. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH CHROME FOR COSTING ME MARKS FOR A LATE SUBMISSION AS WELL AS LOTS OF TEARS COMING WITH A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN I REALLY APPRECIATE IT AND I AM NEVER USING YOU AGAIN.
Glitch with talk to text on chrome
by BratBrizzle on 2021/10/13 00:53
Ever since updating to the iOS 15 there has been a glitch with the talk to text whenever I use this chrome app! Every time I talk to text it shows it in the search engine, but then disappears. It works so seldom now and it’s highly annoying because I depend on talking to text versus typing it. Using the talk to text works fine when I’m using Google search in Safari, so I don’t know if this is a glitch with Apple or a glitch with the Chrome app.
Latest update broke links
by DriftingEarth on 2021/10/12 23:45
My app updated today and suddenly NO LINKS will work. I have to long press a link and then I can open it in a new tab, but they won’t just open. And of course with google, there’s no way to actually share app feedback or issues. The app support button only goes to a useless article in the google help section which doesn’t answer the question or offer to provide any real help. So frustrating! Uninstalling and reinstalling didn’t help so now I’m stuck waiting for them to make another update and who knows how long that’ll be. I am pretty loyal to chrome, but this is SUPER annoying.

by desr28 on 2021/10/12 12:27
I used to love google. Until they started being biased toward one political party. Used to be a browser with unbiased content. I’m not against people of either party. But when you gear your content to only support one party’s pov, that’s pretty sketchy in my book. Thanks for making a search engine political instead of keeping your bias out of it Google. Will be using a different browser from now on.
Voice to text accessibility problems
by Mr Scorp on 2021/10/12 04:03
Google intentionally removed apples voice to text feature on Chrome and is forcing you to use their google voice to text only. That’s extremely disappointing with people that have accessibility problems.
Double tap to open links???
by jtcromer on 2021/10/12 01:42

Complete garbage
by KevStover on 2021/10/12 01:32
Once upon a time you could simply Google something and get answers that were relevant to what you were searching. Google broke itself in an attempt to control the populations thoughts and opinions. You can’t get anything done with this app anymore. It’s simply worthless

Latest update has rendered this browser useless
by ScorpionReaver on 2021/10/11 21:42
Longtime user of Google Chrome, on PC and mobile. On mobile, ever since the recent update, I can't click on links. I can hold down and open in new tab, but I can't click on them directly. I've checked the settings, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled. Nothing has solved this problem, and Google has been nonresponsive. I dislike Safari, so I'm looking elsewhere for a decent browser now.

Crashes and Restore Tabs Drive Me Crazy
by Katherine A. L-S. on 2021/10/11 05:05
I am SICK and TIRED of losing all of my tabs whenever the app crashes AGAIN. Either fix these ridiculous crashes or make the restore tabs feature more reliable as most of the time it doesn’t even appear after a crash and there’s nothing in my Recently Closed Tabs. I like chrome, I do, but NOT if I am going to CONTINUE to lose my weeks worth of research tabs.

Because this browser has gone so far downhill and the last 2 updates have rendered it useless. The browser is so glitchy and now doesn’t store any info needed to make usage easier i made changes. I found 2 other browsers that are work the way I always dreamed CHROME would be so I can move away from all google products. I found better products than YouTube, better email products and search engines . Not duck junk but now I can surf without 20 blog sites coming up 1st like in Google. Now the internet is useful like in the beginning and find myself spending more time on the net than ever . I guess Google should spend less time tracking people and spying than actually making their stuff useable!! BYE !!!!

Tabs won’t close
by "mom" on 2021/10/09 18:56
Every time I try to close a tab on an iPhone the tab simply opens so I’m stuck with a lot of tabs I can’t close.
Terrible
by hi7565 on 2021/10/09 18:16
It is extremely slow crashes and is just annoying to work with
Close all function is stupid
by herecomedatjake on 2021/10/09 17:53
Whoever designed the app to have the button “close all” right next to the “+” button, and letting it close all tabs immediately after pressing it, WITHOUT a warning prompt, has screws loose in their brain. How dumb could you possibly be to design such a thing? I’ve constantly loss countless tab sessions because of this and wasn’t able to recover them.
It’s a good app but..
by 🤞🏼❤️🌍 on 2021/10/09 13:35
I have been using this app for over a year now and it was all good until a a few days ago. When ever I try to log into anything it works but won’t sign me in. For example I tried to log into YouTube I put in my email my password and everything, and after I press next it does nothing and I’m still logged out.
Used to be great!!
by BigOkieChris on 2021/10/09 13:12
Links no longer work after a search. I have to hold down a link, and open in a new tab, for it to work.
Undo
by Carl Wheezer x reader33 on 2021/10/09 05:54
I honestly just wish there was a way for you undo a close all on the mobile app, occasionally I accidentally hit the close all prompt and everything’s just gone. Now granted I do understand that the origin of the problem may be my clumsy fingers but it’s still a hinderance.
Bug or irritating change
by Hippy hoodo on 2020/12/04 16:27
I’m not sure if it’s a bug or some new annoying thing, but recently this has been happening. Whenever I go out of the app, I close out my tabs. So when I come back to the app, those tabs should be gone. But for some reason, they’re back, even though I had already closed them off. So that’s one irritating thing, but then also sometimes I purposely leave a tab open when I close the app because I plan on coming back, and in the past it has always kept the tab there, but now sometimes I will come and it will have closed off the tab. I thought this just might be a glitch so I tried deleting the app and re downloading it but that did not work.
CAN’T Download PDFs
by CEOofSimp on 2021/04/20 23:27
I like google chrome, but I really dislike that I cannot download simple files that I need to save to my phone, because of some error that keep refusing to let me save or download any PDF. It keeps on telling me that “The file could not be downloaded at this time.” I thought I tonight be because I wasn’t running the latest version of chrome, but even after the update, it still shows the same error message. I’m going to leave it as 1 star, so the issue is noticed and hopefully fixed ASAP, thanks! Also if you can make it an option to set the tabs to line up like back to back like it used to, that would be amazing, because me personally, I enjoyed the old Tabs set up over the newer one, as it makes it much easier to bring older tabs to the front if I wanted to, where as the next window tabs set up, makes it a slow and frustrating hassle, especially when you missplace the tab and have to start all over again, just annoying and frustrating. Please consider making it an option to have it set up stacked or windowed and let the people choose the way their tabs are set-up.
Absolutely Horrible
by Nolan034 on 2021/07/19 19:13
Every browser on mobile is terrible in one way or another but Google Chrome has one thing that makes it especially terrible: the close all tabs button. It’s in the worst possible place on the screen if you have an iphone newer than the 8 and it’s way too easy to hit. Never, ever ever have I hit the button to close all tabs and meant to do so, only ever accidentally and in the worst possible times. That button should not be on the screen at all, much less right where it’s easy to hit. It’s not possible to reopen all the tabs because the history doesn’t include enough of them so I’m completely out of luck trying to go back to all the important websites I had open. Remove the button. No one uses it, it’s unnecessary and should be in the options menu, not on the main screen. I only use google chrome because safari is worse and microsoft edge crashes and also closes everything I have open. Overall, it’s an okay app with a terrible layout that desperately needs to be fixed. I will update my review to 5 stars when and if they remove the close all tabs button.
Counterintuitive and unproductive!!
by the actual people on 2019/07/03 02:53
I really wanted to like the Chrome app for iOS but it turned out to be counter productive. I use a lot of other Google apps over Apple (notable Gmail and Google Maps) and after a lot of prompting from those apps to use Chrome when pushing to Safari, I decided to give it a try. After a month of Chrome usage, the app options, gestures, buttons are counterintuitive and slow. For example, I understand some people like to close their browsing session after but I never do- sure, have a close all button but why is it displayed so prominently in the app start. I have pressed it accidentally so many times and closed out my plethora of tabs which is really annoying. There’s no way to recover them if you open a new tab. There’s no option for opening tabs in background, quick new tab from a current tab just to name a few others. Page loading is slowing and constantly reloads instead of saving page data. The iOS Chrome app needs a major refresh and update before I use it again. But right now it is counterintuitive, inefficient, and unproductive.
Terrible privacy problems. Find a better browser
by Christofer Williams on 2021/01/26 07:06
It lets me sync my bookmarks with my laptop (on which I also use Chrome). That’s a nice feature. But it’s so mind-blowingly awful with privacy that I’ve deleted it from all mobile devices. iOS Chrome is completely lacking in every basic privacy control one would expect of any browser built after 2014. This thing doesn’t just track and save everything you do; it presents a list of all recently-visited sites any time you open a new tab... and there’s no way to opt out of this or turn it off. You can’t even delete in bulk; you have to remove these recently-visited sites one by one unless you’re willing to clear your entire browser history. The new tab also automatically loads a selection of news stories, and there’s no way to turn off that feature. It’s like logging onto AOL circa 1996. Sure, you could use incognito mode, but it shouldn’t be an all or nothing choice. If I want to have my cookies and history saved without my search history being immediately presented to anyone who picks up my iPad, that should be an option. (And why, when visiting Google sites, does it assume I want to use the most recently added Google account used in my Gmail app? Wouldn't it make more sense to assume I'm using the default/primary one if it's going to autofill the login screen? And why make it so difficult to log out so that I can log in to the proper account?)
Drives me crazy!
by kabie33 on 2021/04/26 21:07
While most things about this browser are fantastic- but the one thing that absolutely ticks me off about this app, on nearly a daily basis, is the random crash. This problem has exceeded my threshold of tolerance, as it is such an inconvenient, annoying, fault of this app- which easily docks it down three stars for me. Out of nowhere, almost every day, I need to turn off my phone, turn it back on, open the app, and press the restore link that pops up in the right corner. And of course, this always seems to happen when I need to pull something up quickly. I have done everything from cleaning out my phone storage, deleting history, closing all tabs- to completely deleting and re-downloading the app, etc, etc... I’ve come to the conclusion that perhaps iOS and chrome don’t mix- and I should just use safari on my phone- but that is a whole other kind inconvenience. Just disappointing.
No Real Desktop Browser Support
by Solomon Arnett on 2021/04/22 08:55
The fact that the screenshots for this app are in portrait should tell you all you really need to know about this app. With the initial release of iPadOS, Apple brought desktop browsing support to the iPad Pro. Google Chrome has been extremely slow in receiving updates to bring it up to par, and it's still miles away. Even when the Request Desktop Site option is enabled, it is hit or miss. Usually miss for me. And there's no inspect window support in this app, so if you're looking to use your iPad for quick webkit debugging, use Safari. Don't waste your time downloading this app. Transfer your passwords over to keychain and get comfortable with Safari as it has better password support and, like Google Chrome, will inform you whenever your passwords have been compromised. I'm in no way affiliated with Apple or the Safari development team, but I am a developer that has been perpetually let down by Google's iOS and iPadOS development team.
why with all of the unexpected crashes
by TheRadSam on 2020/11/28 09:41
the app has been crashing unexpectedly and randomly crashes for months on end for me and I don’t know weather or not the app can’t handle all the searches I do on the actual app itself or my iPad Pro can’t handle the searches from the Chrome app leading to a crash. And for further notice, it’s been behaving like this for me for 2 years now and my perspective is the Chrome app can only handle limited searches were the desktop version can handle nearly insane amounts of searches depending on the laptop or computer and experiencing sudden random crashes almost makes me think weather the Chrome app has a hidden bug or something like that or an hidden virus possibly. So developers do the best of your knowledge to fix and repair it now please because it gets on my nerves if something doesn’t work properly...
If I could give 0 stars I would
by nervous breakdown kid_1000 on 2021/10/13 15:40
I normally use chrome on my phone to access google classroom when I need to submit pdfs (as I can scan on my Notes app). However, the day I have a test with an unempathetic teacher, chrome decides to crash. And there she is shouting about how I am taking over ten minutes after the she said time’s up to submit because every time I try to open google classroom chrome makes me sign in (which obviously takes a while) and then after I sign in it leads to me a blank page. I probably repeated this process ten times all the while I messaged the teacher as to why I can’t submit and she’s still going on and on about late submissions. So there I am having a meltdown and the reason she’s rushing us is because SHE has somewhere to go. So I give up on chrome and email my laptop the work and message on my submission why it’s so late. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH CHROME FOR COSTING ME MARKS FOR A LATE SUBMISSION AS WELL AS LOTS OF TEARS COMING WITH A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN I REALLY APPRECIATE IT AND I AM NEVER USING YOU AGAIN.
ever since the latest IOS update, google doesn’t load at ALL.
by Prince12347 on 2021/07/10 09:07
i’m losing my mind over this, seriously. every website loads within a millisecond because i have t-mobiles unlimited 5g high speed data plan and i have bars almost all the time, but whenever i open chrome (google is the default browser) IT NEVER LOADS. every other website works perfectly fine. i tried reinstalling the app. i tried deleting all the cache. i tried resetting my network settings on my phone. i tried getting tmobile themselves to reset my network and literally even change cell towers and nothing. i EVEN REPLACED MY PHONE. and google doesn’t load. i cannot understand this whatsoever and nothing helps. what’s stupid is the website sometimes loads 1/10 times but if i try going back to google it doesn’t again. like google is the fundamental website EVERYONE uses to navigate the internet. and i cannot use it. so i’m uninstalling this app and never using it again.
Can’t access other chrome profiles
by Mevans87 on 2021/10/23 12:11
I have multiple Google accounts for different clients. Unlike many Google iOS app, chrome does not support switching your selected Google account. I’m signed in to all of my Google accounts in my phone, but in chrome, I can only access bookmarks and passwords for the “default” account, which just happens to be the first one that I signed in with. Google’s support docs indicate to “switch” the “default” account selected in chrome, I need to log out of my currently “selected” “default” account (I say “selected” since I not not actually select anything - chrome chose for me). The problem with this guidance is that all Google apps on iOS have their login sessions synced. If I sign into 3 Google accounts in Google Drive, they will all 3 be signed in on chrome as well. Vice versa, if I log out of my accounts in chrome, I will get logged out in Drive, which is undesirable.
Pop-ups
by Bee-Bee Cyndaquil on 2018/02/09 01:18
Despite the fact that I have checked my settings numerous times and have “block pop-ups” enabled, I continue to be bombarded by quite obviously malicious pop-ups. The only options I have are to press “ok” and quickly close the tab that is now open to a malicious site, or completely delete the app every time that happens (about every 45 seconds on certain sites.) I used to love using this app for all of my internet browsing, but it has been rendered unusable. Constantly getting pop-ups on wikipedia pages and articles from reputable sources (which I have no problems with on my computer) is absolutely unacceptable. I love google products and the company, and if this problem is fixed then I will most certainly continue using this app as my main browser, but for now I simply cannot because I have to protect my device and my security. Truly disappointing.
Problem saving bookmarks
by De Vanna 7654 on 2018/03/08 14:40
Right now, it is really annoying to save bookmarks. My Bookmark Bar has 14 main folders and 186 subfolders (yes, I just counted), plus hundreds of actual bookmarked sites. The bookmarked sites don't show up while I try to save a new bookmark... but the 186 subfolders do. So if I need to save a new bookmark, this app forces me to scroll past ALL of my folders and subfolders (which this app alphabetizes - meaning they are NOT arranged in the order I have them on desktop) to FIND the folder I want to Save Bookmark in. This is ridiculous. I would LOVE to be able to FIRST select one of the 14 main folders in my Bookmarks Bar, and THEN scroll to the correct subfolder and simply save the new bookmark. Funny enough, this is the EXACT system you have in place for FINDING a bookmark that I've already saved. Sooo... you have a great system in place for FINDING a bookmark, but SAVING A NEW ONE is a nightmare. If you could find it in your hearts to update this, I'd be hugely grateful!!
Old look is dead
by bitterpoet on 2018/12/14 05:08
Google officially killed the old look of Chrome. You used to be able to revert to the older and more functional layout by adjusting hidden flags. This was removed in the latest update and I really hate it. The new look makes everything too big. Finding tabs is actually harder and the new tab manager makes tabs not “feel” like web pages. Every time I open a new tab I almost hit the “close all” button which would be catastrophic. This looks closer to Safari than ever. If I wanted Safari, I’d just use it since it’s already in my phone. Google should be setting themselves apart and pushing the standards and not following other tech companies. I also just don’t understand why the new “in” look is flat graphics, oversized buttons or icons, and huge amounts of wasted whitespace. I have a large phone. I don’t need help with giant menus and buttons that look like they were designed for a senior citizen who forgot their glasses. And what does Google have against labels on the bottom menu bar and in the tab switcher? Sometimes I like to read what I’m about to select before I touch it. The one good thing is the compact menu. It’s concise and reachable. Bring back the customizability that used to exist in software and let me choose how I make my own device look. I don’t need to be forced into the user experience that you think I want.
Change to look of chrome
by Camlav16 on 2018/09/09 12:52
I first have to say that I love chrome. It was always my browser of choice. I just updated it and now it’s not as good. I’m sure bugs were fixed and things were improved but what I really don’t like about the new chrome is the new set look. The think I loved about the only look was the sharpness of everything. It looked really good and totally different from any browser. Then you roll out this new look, and let me say that it is terrible the sharpness is gone and everything feels like it’s made for the elderly and children. It is terrible looking. Everything is sized up to be bigger and everything looks like it’s child guarded. It just doesn’t look right. I’ve searched for a way to change it back but that doesn't seem to be an option. I would delete this review if an option was made to allow you to change it back.
Overall a great browser for mobile with some kinks
by Myrkskog on 2018/10/02 19:56
I love chrome mostly because it saves my passwords and bookmarks in the same place. I use chrome on my PC, and its also nice to see my open tabs on my iPad or phone when I walk into another room and forget what the screen said. Writing this reveiew because I just found a pretty horrendous bug in this app involving the Gmail web client on the iPad 9.6 running iOS 11.4. Was trying to send an email within the “compose” popup within the Chrome Browser. I typed my whole email then selected to add an attachment. I didn’t see my file, so I selected to cancel the file upload. This brought me to a blank Chrome logo and the Chrome app was unresponsive. I was forced to reset the app causing me to lose my work. Hope they fix this quick because its a repro rate of 100%.
Stopped using due to full screen spam ads
by xocoatlturtle on 2018/03/15 14:28
I've always enjoyed using Chrome as my default browser on iPhone, until about two months ago i began experiencing spam ads that would pop up and take over the entire app functioning. Even when I would close the window and the app and reopen it, the ad would pop up again. There was no option except to click on the ad, which one time i did, and it led me to further spam pages that asked me for my personal info. I have even deleted the app from my phone and then downloaded it again, but inevitably the same thing would happen again. Because of this, unfortunately I have had to stop using Chrome. This problem has not occurred with Safari, so for now I'm sticking with that. I'm writing this in the hopes that it can be addressed, so I can safely return to using Chrome again. Thank you!
Unnecessary Changes
by stonestonebrick on 2018/09/18 02:27
I really liked the interface of Chrome. It was fairly similar to adjust to from the PC because they are so similar. Now I have to adapt to this new interface that looks similar to Safari. I dislike Safari's interface with the tabs and other settings in a low bar because I felt that it was inconvenient. Now that Chrome has switched to this new interface, I find it very difficult to adjust my mind on this system especially since this is the browser that I only use. I do like that I can access many of the settings (e.g. History) without having to open up a new tab. Other than this, there weren't any issues the previous interface. It would be lovely if the developers reach back for a conversation with this. If not, then either give us the option to use the previous interface or undo the update.
Constant Crashing
by DoubleeDee on 2020/06/23 00:09
Chrome has been my main browser for yearsss. As of lately, it constantly crashes. Everytime I close out of it to check on a different app, when I open it back up I have to Restore my tabs. But there have been multiple times when I open it up and it doesn’t give me the option to restore. I have to scroll and scroll and scroll through my history to try and find the pages I had open. The first time it did it was when I had certain tabs up for a long time and it was impossible to find them again since the date I originally opened them were more than a week or two old. Wish they would fix it. An update late last year had this same kind of bug, but I thought it had been fixed. Pleaaase get this corrected!
Close All Option Needs to Be Fixed!!!!
by SDJ8684 on 2021/05/22 02:26
I use chrome as my preferred browser of choice. On the desktop, it’s great. However, the app for iPhone need some improvement. I am an individual that likes to keep MANY web browser tabs open, I mean upwards of 30+ tabs, either for reminders, quick reference, or follow up on reading something that I didn’t have time to. I absolutely HATE that the “close all” command is located on the lower left side of the screen. I have accidentally pressed that option on more than one occasion and it’s infuriating that there is not a simple “Are you sure you want to close all tabs” prompt. I wish that Google would consider this or at least allow users to restore ALL closed tabs and not just “recent” tabs. Google please consider this!!!!
Increasingly poor & invasive updates
by holly519 on 2019/02/14 04:56
Breaking my silence in the 7yrs I’ve shopped in the App Store w/o one review to express my frustration w/ the most recent update to the Google Chrome app that I’m using on my new generation iPad. One, it auto-updated; so that p*ssed me off, on sight. Then, when I saw how utterly hideous the pages were, that added a whole other level of outrage. I’ve been too busy this week to research ways to reverse the update (like I successfully did with my phone) and got a feel for the performance, which - not to my surprise - is also lackluster. Additionally, the bottom toolbar that holds the autocorrect/-fill covers the content near the bottom of the page, which was not the case in previous versions. So not only am I being force-fed your incompetence, I will also be forced to look at your ugly mug during that realization..? No bueno. The Google’s privacy violations were more than enough, actively researching alternatives.
From great to terrible
by Jjjjjjjjkjkkkk on 2019/07/04 13:04
I’ve been using just chrome for years, until recently been going great. However now that I can literally not search for anything on chrome without 100,000 ads popping up for my search, especially if it’s a product. And this is not just on chrome, it’s any app I use that has ads. For example. I recently purchased a different VPN since my ISP(looking at you Spectrum) is terrible. I’ve already purchased the product through no effort on chromes part. Now I cannot pull anything up without seeing an ad for it. And I do mean I cannot get away from it on any apps, even after marking the ad as irrelevant. Pop up blockers are apparently being disabled, started seeing more and more get through so I guess it’s time to switch back to Firefox only. And please note, when force fed ads over and over for products means I will never buy said product at all or ever again.
I hate using chrome on iOS can’t restore tabs after it crashes
by Ginamarina on 2020/06/04 22:39
This app is awful. It errors often (“oh snap!”), and crashes pretty consistently - losing every open tab. I have syncing on, but it rarely actually syncs. Unlike Firefox, you can’t manually sync. (That I can find). I’m so tired of chrome, and google’s stuff is proprietary enough that you can’t choose other default browsers. I just lost another 40-some tabs today. Chrome let me restore them after the first crash, then proceeded to crash again. I reopened chrome, saw it “sync”, it crashed again, and when I tried to recover recent tabs, there was nothing - because it synced right after it crashed! Too frustrating to depend on. I looked on my pc’s browser and it showed no synced tabs from my iPad. This has been going on for over 2 years with no improvement. Bookmark all open tabs regularly or you’ll be screwed. :(
Typing lags and bookmark icons have disappeared.
by Kirk Markarian on 2017/12/06 04:02
UPDATE: Still issues. Now the bookmarks don't show unless I go hunting for them in a menu. So, now they are still gone from the old bookmark grid page style AND NOW I have to actually LOOK for them. Why? Browser is slow, typing lags horribly, bookmarks icons disappear when scrolling down the screen. Chrome for iPad keeps forgetting my passwords. Please let us have the old bookmark method back, where we would have larger square icons that did not disappear when I scroll down the screen AND they sorted themselves horizontally across the screen, from left to right. I remove the titles on all of my bookmarks to be able to fit more on my desktop Chrome browser. The list-view of small icons is really poor design. I used to rave about how wonderful this browser was, but back in March, it seems to have taken a turn for the worse.
New update is a tad buggy
by chickennuggetqween on 2018/03/25 05:09
The recent March update has a few issues with it? The main issue I face is when I try to hit the tab button and look at all of my open tabs. When I exit a tab to do that, all of my tabs disappear and I can only see the black/grey background, along with the New Tab, Tab Count, and Options buttons. When I hit them they don't do anything, and I have to restart the app to have my tabs come back. I can't tell if it's because I have a gazillion tabs open (which I wasn't facing this issue a few days ago, before I updated and had a bunch of tabs open) or if it's just a bug with the new update. Otherwise, it works great! I just hope this gets fixed :D
This was great
by Chris while driving on 2018/10/10 00:07
I love chrome. I gave it 2 stars, but let’s be honest, it’s still the best browser out there. BUT, this new update took a 5 star rating and turned it into a 2 Star. I abhor tr new layout. I stopped using safari precisely because I HATED the forward and back (and all the function buttons for that matter) buttons along the bottom of the screen. It makes zero sense to have address and navigation buttons in different places. Chrome had it beautifully placed. And what do they do? take 10 steps back to do exactly what their competitors failed to move on from 8 years ago. Their multiple tabs are not nearly as easily reached and navigated. Not tough to use at all, but another definite step back in terms of intuitive design. I’m not here telling you not to download it, but for the LOVE OF GOD put stuff back where it belongs!!!!!
LOVE the Update!
by AngDeHoo on 2018/11/18 20:23
No more thumb stretch, HOORAY!!! I LOVE that you moved the back button and tabs down to the bottom! My thumb thanks you as well. I try to never use Safari so I can’t say if it looks like Safari as the Reviewer who didn’t care for the update mentioned. Frankly, I only care about the “useability” (this should be a word and not 2 words). I’m a busy mom with young kids so I need to be able to navigate quickly and switch between saved tabs often for teams schedules and recipes and shopping and poison control. You have made that infinitely easier with this update. BAM 6 screen views at once, swipe for 6 more....GAME CHANGER....dogs that ate entire packages of Oreos saved! Thank you.
TABS AUTOMATICALLY OPENING
by WhoIsAdrian on 2021/03/22 07:04
I keep deleting Chrome app off my iPhone XS Max and re-downloading it in hopes of fixing this huge annoying problem. The problem: Every time I open a new tab it automatically sends me to another tab (usually the top left tab) I already had open. It’s clearly a bug because I’ve deleted all my caches and cookies multiple times and no luck. I usually have 6-10 tabs open. For years this never happened. Now for months this has been happening. And yes it’s on the latest update as well as my iOS. It’s like when you open your car door but then your truck opens up on its own. It’s like taking a bite out of pizza but then you realize you just ate a boring piece of dried broccoli. It’s like working at Google for $150,000 a year as a programmer on the iOS Chrome app but then realize you broke what was never broken to begin with on your updates. 😐
Password saving feature broken for good
by Enzfau on 2020/04/29 22:11
I loved chrome as long as it lasted . But there is really no support system if something does not work . The password saving feature broke on my Mac, while it still works on other computers where I had my profile installed . But that does not help me a bit. I looked into every resource , downloaded the passwords, reinstalled them, even looked I to some quite tech websites and did everything suggested , wasted plenty of time on that . Final verdict - a browsing Maschine that collects all my personal information and passwords already makes me uncomfortable ( even I could not resist the convenience for the longest time ) but passwords that first start changing randomly and then the whole password saving function runs amok without that chrome has a solution for that made me pull the plug .
Use this over Safari
by Mixus-Laxus on 2018/09/16 18:44
Occasionally safari won’t show something properly or won’t respond to a button press. Chrome has been less buggy, even with the Apple website, which did not load the iPhone XS preorder page properly. I tried opening it in chrome and it worked just fine. Same thing with the Razer Blade website, button presses responded more often. Safari loaded something that chrome didn’t only once, which was the Samsung Galaxy website. Also safari doesn’t sync with my PC, which Chrome does, so that’s a plus. It also has a smarter layout and the new update makes it look better than ever.
Please remove tab groups
by Romans12357 on 2021/09/21 05:03
The tab groups are horrible. As someone that rarely uses more than a few tabs I get absolutely no benefit from having tab groups. However, it makes using the browser much more annoying. Because all the tabs are at the very top of the screen, I can’t reach hem without moving my hand. If they were at least centered on the screen, it would be slightly more bearable. But the whole functionality just adds unnecessary and useless complexion. Overall, it makes the app much more frustrating to use. It would be nice if there was a setting to turn tab groups off. It should be fairly simple to implement since the browser has had no tab groups until fairly recently. But that would require actually giving users some form of customization and allowing them to use the product in a way that works for them.
Back to Safari for now
by nyjenvt on 2021/03/23 16:41
Recently switched to the Chrome app with an iPhone 12 Pro upgrade. I use Chrome on my PC so was excited at the thought of being able to seamlessly switch from phone to PC when needed and especially now that Chrome can be set to default browser with iOS 14. Way too many bugs in the iOS version though. Like many others have mentioned, page competition consistently messes up and jumps off the screen to the left, pages wiggle left and right when scrolling not allowing for a quick enough scroll, and I’ve experienced not being able to scroll many pages in general, with the page constantly jumping back to the top as I try to scroll down. Simply way too bugs to continue using when I’ve never had any of these issues with Safari. I’ll be sticking with Safari until these bugs are fixed.
First app review !
by Sjayy316 on 2020/09/11 09:08
I don’t do many reviews for apps in this store but ... Google chrome is amazing especially for storing data on your phone and computer, makes it so much easier, this version is great, I had this issue yesterday, I literally thought of suggesting to allow to use my chrome passwords , the only thing at the time was downloading all your passwords in PDF form, now Apple and google has made it so you can select auto fill passwords , chrome now is one of them! So I have my Apple and chrome all in one place. Maybe you saw me have the issue lol. Thanks for one of the best browsers and now more simple to use our stored private data.
Latest Update Ruined the App
by lxhford on 2019/03/17 10:21
This has always been my favorite browser but the last few updates have no improved the app. The latest update has caused the keyboard to be so laggy that it is unusable. Also, my search suggestions stopped showing up from Google. Another recent update changed the layout to match Safari. I used to love to swipe through all of my open tabs & close the ones I needed to close quickly & easily. Now, the app goes to the “tiled” screen, where you see several tiny versions of each page. I have to click on each one to even tell what many of them are, & most of the time that page has to reload & many times fails doing that! It takes about 5x as long to go through & close tabs. Super annoying. Bring back the old way! (But first, fix the laggy keyboard because I can’t even use Chrome at this point. 🙄)
I have an issue while uploading
by Wrine on 2018/09/11 21:10
I enjoy this browser. However I want to address that since the last update and this new firmware I have an issue with uploading documents online on this browser. I’m using an IPad Pro 10.5. On the last firmware anytime I selected the document and hit upload it will just go white with the google chrome logo in the center of the screen. With this new firmware, once I hit upload and it will display my open tabs, and I’m able to exit the tab selection by tapping on done. I have closed the app and have attempted over and over. I hate using Safari, but I need to upload my resume. Please fix!
Love it. Hate the update. Any way to downgrade?
by Lucy Blossom🌸 on 2019/02/18 23:06
Just use actual Chrome on a computer, it works way better then this app which has disappointed me more then I expected. I love using this app, but the update has completely threw me off. I often use google and when I'm scrolling down, my fingers are always on the bottom of the screen and swiping things all the time. I read a lot and the new google update isn't helping. I prefer the old version where everything is on top of the screen where I can easily swipe up to hide and not accidentally click a button to go back or forth when I don't need to. I just want to know if there's anyway to downgrade the app. I also had over 100 tabs open. I lost it all in an instant and have NO way of getting them back. I haven't the slightest clue what majority of the tabs were called and it's extremely difficult to try to find EVERYTHING all over again which I don't have time for. I need a section in which the tabs I have recently deleted, ON ACCIDENT CAUSE IM NOT STUPID ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY WILLINGLY DO THAT, can be replaced in an instant. Without going into my history, because let's be honest. History is a mix of what happened on one tab. NOT ON ALL TABS THAT WE HAD. It's really starting to annoy me by how google chrome is starting to fail.
I love it but seriously
by InfernalNouva on 2018/09/26 06:25
Hey. No issues with the software as a whole, except one thing. And it has been there as long as I can remember. The close all tabs option. It’s ALWAYS been too close to the create new something or other and it doesn’t ask if you’re sure. Important purchase you’re working on, gone. Website you were saving for later, gone. Tabs you keep around just in case, gone. It just goes ahead and wipes everything. And with the most recent update it’s RIGHT NEXT TO THE CREATE NEW TAB OPTION. Can we at least give it an extra alert that asks,”are you sure you want to delete all tabs?” As a computer programmer this isn’t that hard. Please, I’m begging you.
Terrible update
by dnrkaoabale cu on 2019/11/29 21:01
The interface is super clunky, and way more annoying than the streamlined tab layout from before where there was a small, unobtrusive button that opened the menu for the rest of the features like settings, bookmarks, history, etc., the fact that the bar is on the bottom of the screen now is just disorienting. I initially chose chrome because I liked the simple streamlined layout and safari had the clunky ui, but now chrome looks worse than safari, aesthetically speaking. Maybe give users the option to revert to the former? I like chrome and don’t want to stop using the app, but this update is definitely not worth the hassle. Edit: the app crashes way more frequently with this update as well
What’s going on? If it ain’t broke- leave alone!
by Tenderheart45 on 2018/09/21 05:49
Sorry, but the latest update leaves something to be desired. Been trying to get used to it in last few days and there’s just something off about it. It’s lots more difficult to go back to a previous page, in fact, sometimes the back arrows are totally missing as well as other selections that used to be self evident. And I don’t like that black background! Yuk! Depressing!! Did you test this on anyone before you rolled it out? And the auto save of passwords feature seems to have decided to not work! I really liked that, but now it doesn’t even ask if I want Chrome to save or update for me, or it does so intermittently. Think you have some ‘splaining to do or fix it please! Thanks.
2 stars.. annoying problem.
by cyberhugs on 2021/02/01 18:13
I am a mobile chrome user myself, and have alwayd delt with the same problem, I have an iphone 8 which by itself is a kind of small phone so when it comes to the size of the screen its gonna be tough. But safari and other search engines have a zoom setting in the app or in the working tab, I know there is a text zoom setting on chrome but that only makes the text smaller that doesnt resolve the issue, lets say for example I wanted to read an article. The page on chrome was too small to read parts of the article and i couldnt zoom out it would just stay still and make the page go backwards if that makes sense. Developers of chrome please make a zoom page button where you can make the page more spacious, Thank you!!
Issues with playing audio while screen is off
by lawshuajaw on 2020/01/07 16:58
Since the iOS 13 update I have had an issue with being able to play audio from any website in the background while my screen is turned off. Within about 1-2 min of the screen turning off the audio ceases to play until I unlock my phone and hit the play button on the site again. This makes it almost impossible to listen to any podcast without downloading the appropriate app, or as I learned last night, playing the audio in Safari. I much prefer the UI in Chrome and rather be able to use it exclusively, but as of now the only way for me to listen to most podcasts is by opening the site in Safari and playing it from there.
I love Chrome
by troysteris on 2018/09/26 20:41
Chrome surpassed IE and now Edge a long time ago. Even on my iPad I prefer it to Safari, but one thing I wish Chrome and Safari would allow the user to do is set the default to always give us the Desktop version of the sites we visit. I hate having to go in for each site, every time I open a new tab, and telling it to give me the Desktop version. I only go to Desktop versions. I understand not everyone wants to pay for the extra data, but I suspect there are many people out there like me who don’t concern themselves with the extra data costs and need or want the full site. Please give us the option to make that a default setting.
I use opera browser now
by theLEGENDofALDO on 2020/11/12 04:33
I used to love chrome on PC but it’s a memory hog. This new update on iPhone makes it where anytime I go to see my tabs it randomly opens a tab. I have to click open tabs again and if I have a lot of tabs open I lose my place because it’s always random and sometimes scroll through tabs to get to where I want. There’s also a problem that happens in all sites from high mobile compatibility NYTimes and NPR to Wordpress blogging sites whenever I’m scrolling down the site will randomly jump to the top. Sometimes I can’t get past the first couple paragraphs I have to close the app and try again. Sometimes I just switch to safari. Lately I’ve been using opera on PC. I switched to opera on iPhone I don’t have to worry about random actions happening when I’m trying to read an article. It was a good run Chrome. Take care.
The new chrome looks great
by Thunder 2711 on 2018/10/19 02:31
I absolutely love the new look of chrome as it is just more simplistic and the the multi-tasking mode makes things so much easier! This is something different which is great in my mind, it’s more of a browser made for the phone that works well with the display, rather than safari for example, which in my opinion was made just to access the internet and it doesn’t work well, whereas the new chrome is even better than it was before! I love it!! Keep up the good work!! *** Forgot to say that I love the idea of all the utilities such as searching is at the bottom for easy access!! :D
iPhone X Users Avoid
by Moontei on 2017/12/07 00:09
I’ve been a longtime Chrome user on multiple iPhones throughout the years and overall it has been decent....until now. Even after all this time and multiple updates since the iPhone X was released, Chrome is still practically unusable on Apple’s new flagship device in landscape mode. In landscape mode it zooms in the page and won’t let you zoom out to see the whole webpage (seems this varies depending on the site). Another glaring issue is that you can’t tap the top of the screen to instantly scroll to the top of the current page in landscape mode. I’ve sent constructive feedback a few times already and never gotten a reply or even acknowledgement of them receiving it. Guess the team at google just don’t plan on fixing this glaring issue. iPHONE X USERS AVOID!
Held back by Apple
by blaine00 on 2019/11/05 13:06
I love Chrome, but this version is held back by Apple’s unfair and anticompetitive rules. I really hope that Apple adopt ethical app store guidelines that ensures a level playing field for all who enter. This browser can’t be as good as the built-in Safari browser because Apple forces 3rd party browsers to use the mobile Safari engine. In the meantime, Safari on iPad gets to use a full big-boy desktop engine. On the bright side, it is nice to have my Chrome bookmarks and passwords sync over. Too bad Apple won’t allow Google to also implement Chrome extensions. If that were something Google could control, I’d remove a star.
Unusually High Battery Consumption
by runTAKESHI on 2018/10/28 17:35
Hi Google team, I'm not sure why this is happening, but currently browsing through some pages and searches the app has consumed 40% of my battery's life in 20 minutes. Even opening after closing all other apps and opening chrome to view the opening page used up 2% (17% down to 15%) while on low battery mode. My phone has at most run 5-6 other apps today. By some deduction I found that chrome was responsible for the unusually high battery consumption. Please feel free to contact me for any other follow-up questions. This seems to be a disturbingly odd for a browser's behavior.
Update no longer saves incognito sessions
by HumbuckerMan on 2018/04/04 01:15
As stated in the title, after updating, it seems as though my sessions while browsing incognito do not get saved like they used to. Prior to this, I could close the app or leave it in the background and it would go back to incognito and IF I ever did lose my session, it would ask me to restore (to no avail due to it being incognito, which is expected and I was ok with that). Whenever I open the app now, it won’t even ask to “restore session” so I am assuming that this is intentional? If so, I am not a fan of this change but I am writing this to make you all aware of this change/bug. The app itself is good and I wish I could set it as my default browser to open links and what not. Thanks.
Not a fan of v69
by Person73847383848 on 2018/10/10 20:28
I used the new version for a few days to give it a chance. I like the way it looks but I hate everything else about it. What's with the GIANT real estate-hogging search button? Are people really so lazy that they want this? It functions exactly the same as tapping the URL bar. Pointless waste of space. Put the reload button back in the toolbar please. Or somewhere at the top. There are plenty of places it could go. I really hate the new tab management page too. I miss that you can't swipe to close them. Feels extremely clunky. I don't mind the navigation being at the bottom, and because of that I've switched to Safari for the time being. Not happy about it as I've previously avoided Safari like the plague but at least it has features I'll actually use. Can't say that about this latest Chrome update, so, goodbye.

Options don’t work

Turning trending searches off does absolutely nothing. I still see a huge list of suggestions when I open to search. If you are going to have this option available at least make it work correctly.
Links have stopped working on iPhone

No show reviews
by Joggboy on 2021/10/24 00:51
I like to share my POV on reviews but as of lately I am unable to post reviews. The reviews do not show up on the business being reviewed. I have tried countless attempts to get the review to be posted…with no success. Google Maps use to be a breeze with reviews..now it’s almost as if your google account has to be an older account for any reviews to show. Even if the account is made with a phone number, the review does not show 👎👎👎

Can’t access other chrome profiles
by Mevans87 on 2021/10/23 12:11
I have multiple Google accounts for different clients. Unlike many Google iOS app, chrome does not support switching your selected Google account. I’m signed in to all of my Google accounts in my phone, but in chrome, I can only access bookmarks and passwords for the “default” account, which just happens to be the first one that I signed in with. Google’s support docs indicate to “switch” the “default” account selected in chrome, I need to log out of my currently “selected” “default” account (I say “selected” since I not not actually select anything - chrome chose for me). The problem with this guidance is that all Google apps on iOS have their login sessions synced. If I sign into 3 Google accounts in Google Drive, they will all 3 be signed in on chrome as well. Vice versa, if I log out of my accounts in chrome, I will get logged out in Drive, which is undesirable.

Works very well but odd sign-in issues
by insertnombre on 2021/10/22 21:53
I have had this app for a few months and I love it. That said, a week or so ago, it randomly signed me out of all of my tabs that I had on it, mainly YouTube, and doesn’t work when I try to sign back in. It shows me all the way through the prompt, but never registers afterwards. I know that it’s no my device because Safari has no issue with this. I love this app and will continue to use it, but would like this to be looked into.

Chrome has betrayed end users
by Tealie-o on 2021/10/21 17:45
Chrome is now allowing ‘domain administrators’ full access to users’ settings, extensions, data, etc. I now cannot sync my data across devices due to a work policy and would not want to due to privacy. Multiple monitoring and security extensions were installed without my knowledge, no prompts, no acknowledgement. I will now permanently stop using chrome on ALL devices.
Have it

Websites
by Rosecal27 on 2021/10/21 04:25
Why in the last two weeks has Chrome decided that websites I have always used, are not secure? Or that they take so long to open that they crash? I'm not doing anything different.

Dumb rotation behavior

Bad privacy monopoly
by Youwontfreeze on 2021/10/18 22:12

i have a question of legality
by sllydell on 2021/10/18 17:50
simply put i always turn off all invasions of privacy google implements in all there data mining attempts. so why do i have to keep turn off this innvasion of privacy when the app updates? i'm not agreeing to allow you to mine my personal information. i'm not agreeing to a new set of terms and services. So my question is why do i have to turn them off again when your app updates? i feel this is illeage and infrigens on my privacy.
Voice to text disappear-like me from chrome !
by Rooooooooooooooo123 on 2021/10/18 15:51
Reviewer Brad Beeman described the issue perfectly! Speech to text search ‘works’ with native iOS keyboard - and then the text disappears before you can actually search! However google microphone searches work..not impressed. Text to speech is an important option!! I have stayed on Chrome for years because of access to all bookmarks, however I think I will have to make a switch to Safari unless issues are fixed where speech to text is not an issue. Also why is dark mode sporadic? When iPhone is in dark mode and all the settings are selected- on many websites it’s still not “dark”.. unless it is website dependent? These issues are disappointing!

New update is terrible
by Frenchrikku on 2021/10/18 07:20
I don’t know what they’ve done to the touch abilities, but now I have the hardest time selecting links in a web page. I have to click on it multiple times. Often, in my frustration or attempt at a double click, I click too many times and end up selecting something on the next page. Then I have to go back one page and load it again. It’s such a time waster. I used to be able to touch ONE time and browse easily. I’ve checked my settings and nothing has changed. I know it’s chrome and the links because typing works just fine still inside and out of the app. Please fix. I use Chrome bc it automatically translates the Japanese pages I have to visit.

Closing tabs
by Toddturtle on 2021/10/17 12:19
Chrome is my browser of choice, but the newest version for my phone makes it nearly impossible to close a tab/page without choosing “close all.” The X is in a ridiculous spot and it’s so small you can’t tap it without opening the page you’re trying to close.
Broken. iOS 15.0.0, 15.0.2 voicing text clears
by BradBeeman on 2021/10/17 03:05
I’m surprised you haven’t fixed the problem we’re pushing the microphone on an iPhone especially the 12 and the 13 is broken. Pushing to make invoicing text types the text but then it disappears when the mic gets deactivated by pushing the mic or somewhere else on the screen when you are done dictating. Fix it. Makes me switch over to Safari to do things so you are missing out on revenue.
Take out the “Deleted all save tabs” opción
by JeanWilson1 on 2021/10/17 01:48
I have use this app for more than 8 years and the opción to delete all tabs has made me so mad “l use it for reading and looking for interesting topics”, is the 8 time it has happened to me that all my tabs where close by acidity when on my pocket and scroll over my tabs if only you add in “are you sure you want to delete all the tabs” yes or no button) every day l use the app and this time l had close to 200 tabs, l still like the app but the problem really got to me this time. 4 star’s but once fix 5 star ezz. Hope you have a best day ever
Latest update problems
by ndeboy on 2021/10/17 01:05
Latest update has caused problems with links not opening and having to tap them in a certain spot to open and keyboard typing lag that gets worse the longer the app is open.

Voice issue when searching?
by Maxwell9002 on 2021/10/16 18:27
Tap microphone, say what I want to search for, then nothing happens. If I tap any button at all, the text I’d just spoken disappears. The only way to use is to use keyboard. Will update if I figure out solution.

I used to just love using Chrome but recently it just doesn't work right! Every time I push on a link it doesn't work. Yet when I use another browser it does work so it seems to be a chrome issue.
Not great for IPadOS
by some Rando Name on 2021/10/16 16:02
This app doesn’t take Advantage of iPadOS and serve the mobile version of websites instead of giving a full desktop experience like in Safari. You can set it to request the desktop website but in my experience the websites will be desktop friendly but the whole user interface is just a mobile app blown up for the bigger screen giving the user a less enjoyable experience than the desktop version of chrome that I like a lot more.

I’ve been using Chrome on my iPad for a while now and not had any problems. I don’t know whether it was an update or the new iOS with Apple but the last 2 to 3 weeks it crashes all the time or randomly opens another app or window….I’m officially not going to use it anymore.

If I could give 0 stars I would
by nervous breakdown kid_1000 on 2021/10/13 15:40
I normally use chrome on my phone to access google classroom when I need to submit pdfs (as I can scan on my Notes app). However, the day I have a test with an unempathetic teacher, chrome decides to crash. And there she is shouting about how I am taking over ten minutes after the she said time’s up to submit because every time I try to open google classroom chrome makes me sign in (which obviously takes a while) and then after I sign in it leads to me a blank page. I probably repeated this process ten times all the while I messaged the teacher as to why I can’t submit and she’s still going on and on about late submissions. So there I am having a meltdown and the reason she’s rushing us is because SHE has somewhere to go. So I give up on chrome and email my laptop the work and message on my submission why it’s so late. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH CHROME FOR COSTING ME MARKS FOR A LATE SUBMISSION AS WELL AS LOTS OF TEARS COMING WITH A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN I REALLY APPRECIATE IT AND I AM NEVER USING YOU AGAIN.
Glitch with talk to text on chrome
by BratBrizzle on 2021/10/13 00:53
Ever since updating to the iOS 15 there has been a glitch with the talk to text whenever I use this chrome app! Every time I talk to text it shows it in the search engine, but then disappears. It works so seldom now and it’s highly annoying because I depend on talking to text versus typing it. Using the talk to text works fine when I’m using Google search in Safari, so I don’t know if this is a glitch with Apple or a glitch with the Chrome app.
Latest update broke links
by DriftingEarth on 2021/10/12 23:45
My app updated today and suddenly NO LINKS will work. I have to long press a link and then I can open it in a new tab, but they won’t just open. And of course with google, there’s no way to actually share app feedback or issues. The app support button only goes to a useless article in the google help section which doesn’t answer the question or offer to provide any real help. So frustrating! Uninstalling and reinstalling didn’t help so now I’m stuck waiting for them to make another update and who knows how long that’ll be. I am pretty loyal to chrome, but this is SUPER annoying.

by desr28 on 2021/10/12 12:27
I used to love google. Until they started being biased toward one political party. Used to be a browser with unbiased content. I’m not against people of either party. But when you gear your content to only support one party’s pov, that’s pretty sketchy in my book. Thanks for making a search engine political instead of keeping your bias out of it Google. Will be using a different browser from now on.
Voice to text accessibility problems
by Mr Scorp on 2021/10/12 04:03
Google intentionally removed apples voice to text feature on Chrome and is forcing you to use their google voice to text only. That’s extremely disappointing with people that have accessibility problems.

Latest update has rendered this browser useless
by ScorpionReaver on 2021/10/11 21:42
Longtime user of Google Chrome, on PC and mobile. On mobile, ever since the recent update, I can't click on links. I can hold down and open in new tab, but I can't click on them directly. I've checked the settings, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled. Nothing has solved this problem, and Google has been nonresponsive. I dislike Safari, so I'm looking elsewhere for a decent browser now.

Crashes and Restore Tabs Drive Me Crazy
by Katherine A. L-S. on 2021/10/11 05:05
I am SICK and TIRED of losing all of my tabs whenever the app crashes AGAIN. Either fix these ridiculous crashes or make the restore tabs feature more reliable as most of the time it doesn’t even appear after a crash and there’s nothing in my Recently Closed Tabs. I like chrome, I do, but NOT if I am going to CONTINUE to lose my weeks worth of research tabs.

Because this browser has gone so far downhill and the last 2 updates have rendered it useless. The browser is so glitchy and now doesn’t store any info needed to make usage easier i made changes. I found 2 other browsers that are work the way I always dreamed CHROME would be so I can move away from all google products. I found better products than YouTube, better email products and search engines . Not duck junk but now I can surf without 20 blog sites coming up 1st like in Google. Now the internet is useful like in the beginning and find myself spending more time on the net than ever . I guess Google should spend less time tracking people and spying than actually making their stuff useable!! BYE !!!!

Close all function is stupid
by herecomedatjake on 2021/10/09 17:53
Whoever designed the app to have the button “close all” right next to the “+” button, and letting it close all tabs immediately after pressing it, WITHOUT a warning prompt, has screws loose in their brain. How dumb could you possibly be to design such a thing? I’ve constantly loss countless tab sessions because of this and wasn’t able to recover them.
It’s a good app but..
by 🤞🏼❤️🌍 on 2021/10/09 13:35
I have been using this app for over a year now and it was all good until a a few days ago. When ever I try to log into anything it works but won’t sign me in. For example I tried to log into YouTube I put in my email my password and everything, and after I press next it does nothing and I’m still logged out.
Used to be great!!
by BigOkieChris on 2021/10/09 13:12
Links no longer work after a search. I have to hold down a link, and open in a new tab, for it to work.
Undo
by Carl Wheezer x reader33 on 2021/10/09 05:54
I honestly just wish there was a way for you undo a close all on the mobile app, occasionally I accidentally hit the close all prompt and everything’s just gone. Now granted I do understand that the origin of the problem may be my clumsy fingers but it’s still a hinderance.
Bug or irritating change
by Hippy hoodo on 2020/12/04 16:27
I’m not sure if it’s a bug or some new annoying thing, but recently this has been happening. Whenever I go out of the app, I close out my tabs. So when I come back to the app, those tabs should be gone. But for some reason, they’re back, even though I had already closed them off. So that’s one irritating thing, but then also sometimes I purposely leave a tab open when I close the app because I plan on coming back, and in the past it has always kept the tab there, but now sometimes I will come and it will have closed off the tab. I thought this just might be a glitch so I tried deleting the app and re downloading it but that did not work.
CAN’T Download PDFs
by CEOofSimp on 2021/04/20 23:27
I like google chrome, but I really dislike that I cannot download simple files that I need to save to my phone, because of some error that keep refusing to let me save or download any PDF. It keeps on telling me that “The file could not be downloaded at this time.” I thought I tonight be because I wasn’t running the latest version of chrome, but even after the update, it still shows the same error message. I’m going to leave it as 1 star, so the issue is noticed and hopefully fixed ASAP, thanks! Also if you can make it an option to set the tabs to line up like back to back like it used to, that would be amazing, because me personally, I enjoyed the old Tabs set up over the newer one, as it makes it much easier to bring older tabs to the front if I wanted to, where as the next window tabs set up, makes it a slow and frustrating hassle, especially when you missplace the tab and have to start all over again, just annoying and frustrating. Please consider making it an option to have it set up stacked or windowed and let the people choose the way their tabs are set-up.
Absolutely Horrible
by Nolan034 on 2021/07/19 19:13
Every browser on mobile is terrible in one way or another but Google Chrome has one thing that makes it especially terrible: the close all tabs button. It’s in the worst possible place on the screen if you have an iphone newer than the 8 and it’s way too easy to hit. Never, ever ever have I hit the button to close all tabs and meant to do so, only ever accidentally and in the worst possible times. That button should not be on the screen at all, much less right where it’s easy to hit. It’s not possible to reopen all the tabs because the history doesn’t include enough of them so I’m completely out of luck trying to go back to all the important websites I had open. Remove the button. No one uses it, it’s unnecessary and should be in the options menu, not on the main screen. I only use google chrome because safari is worse and microsoft edge crashes and also closes everything I have open. Overall, it’s an okay app with a terrible layout that desperately needs to be fixed. I will update my review to 5 stars when and if they remove the close all tabs button.
Counterintuitive and unproductive!!
by the actual people on 2019/07/03 02:53
I really wanted to like the Chrome app for iOS but it turned out to be counter productive. I use a lot of other Google apps over Apple (notable Gmail and Google Maps) and after a lot of prompting from those apps to use Chrome when pushing to Safari, I decided to give it a try. After a month of Chrome usage, the app options, gestures, buttons are counterintuitive and slow. For example, I understand some people like to close their browsing session after but I never do- sure, have a close all button but why is it displayed so prominently in the app start. I have pressed it accidentally so many times and closed out my plethora of tabs which is really annoying. There’s no way to recover them if you open a new tab. There’s no option for opening tabs in background, quick new tab from a current tab just to name a few others. Page loading is slowing and constantly reloads instead of saving page data. The iOS Chrome app needs a major refresh and update before I use it again. But right now it is counterintuitive, inefficient, and unproductive.
Terrible privacy problems. Find a better browser
by Christofer Williams on 2021/01/26 07:06
It lets me sync my bookmarks with my laptop (on which I also use Chrome). That’s a nice feature. But it’s so mind-blowingly awful with privacy that I’ve deleted it from all mobile devices. iOS Chrome is completely lacking in every basic privacy control one would expect of any browser built after 2014. This thing doesn’t just track and save everything you do; it presents a list of all recently-visited sites any time you open a new tab... and there’s no way to opt out of this or turn it off. You can’t even delete in bulk; you have to remove these recently-visited sites one by one unless you’re willing to clear your entire browser history. The new tab also automatically loads a selection of news stories, and there’s no way to turn off that feature. It’s like logging onto AOL circa 1996. Sure, you could use incognito mode, but it shouldn’t be an all or nothing choice. If I want to have my cookies and history saved without my search history being immediately presented to anyone who picks up my iPad, that should be an option. (And why, when visiting Google sites, does it assume I want to use the most recently added Google account used in my Gmail app? Wouldn't it make more sense to assume I'm using the default/primary one if it's going to autofill the login screen? And why make it so difficult to log out so that I can log in to the proper account?)
Drives me crazy!
by kabie33 on 2021/04/26 21:07
While most things about this browser are fantastic- but the one thing that absolutely ticks me off about this app, on nearly a daily basis, is the random crash. This problem has exceeded my threshold of tolerance, as it is such an inconvenient, annoying, fault of this app- which easily docks it down three stars for me. Out of nowhere, almost every day, I need to turn off my phone, turn it back on, open the app, and press the restore link that pops up in the right corner. And of course, this always seems to happen when I need to pull something up quickly. I have done everything from cleaning out my phone storage, deleting history, closing all tabs- to completely deleting and re-downloading the app, etc, etc... I’ve come to the conclusion that perhaps iOS and chrome don’t mix- and I should just use safari on my phone- but that is a whole other kind inconvenience. Just disappointing.
No Real Desktop Browser Support
by Solomon Arnett on 2021/04/22 08:55
The fact that the screenshots for this app are in portrait should tell you all you really need to know about this app. With the initial release of iPadOS, Apple brought desktop browsing support to the iPad Pro. Google Chrome has been extremely slow in receiving updates to bring it up to par, and it's still miles away. Even when the Request Desktop Site option is enabled, it is hit or miss. Usually miss for me. And there's no inspect window support in this app, so if you're looking to use your iPad for quick webkit debugging, use Safari. Don't waste your time downloading this app. Transfer your passwords over to keychain and get comfortable with Safari as it has better password support and, like Google Chrome, will inform you whenever your passwords have been compromised. I'm in no way affiliated with Apple or the Safari development team, but I am a developer that has been perpetually let down by Google's iOS and iPadOS development team.
why with all of the unexpected crashes
by TheRadSam on 2020/11/28 09:41
the app has been crashing unexpectedly and randomly crashes for months on end for me and I don’t know weather or not the app can’t handle all the searches I do on the actual app itself or my iPad Pro can’t handle the searches from the Chrome app leading to a crash. And for further notice, it’s been behaving like this for me for 2 years now and my perspective is the Chrome app can only handle limited searches were the desktop version can handle nearly insane amounts of searches depending on the laptop or computer and experiencing sudden random crashes almost makes me think weather the Chrome app has a hidden bug or something like that or an hidden virus possibly. So developers do the best of your knowledge to fix and repair it now please because it gets on my nerves if something doesn’t work properly...

ever since the latest IOS update, google doesn’t load at ALL.
by Prince12347 on 2021/07/10 09:07
i’m losing my mind over this, seriously. every website loads within a millisecond because i have t-mobiles unlimited 5g high speed data plan and i have bars almost all the time, but whenever i open chrome (google is the default browser) IT NEVER LOADS. every other website works perfectly fine. i tried reinstalling the app. i tried deleting all the cache. i tried resetting my network settings on my phone. i tried getting tmobile themselves to reset my network and literally even change cell towers and nothing. i EVEN REPLACED MY PHONE. and google doesn’t load. i cannot understand this whatsoever and nothing helps. what’s stupid is the website sometimes loads 1/10 times but if i try going back to google it doesn’t again. like google is the fundamental website EVERYONE uses to navigate the internet. and i cannot use it. so i’m uninstalling this app and never using it again.
Can’t access other chrome profiles
by Mevans87 on 2021/10/23 12:11
I have multiple Google accounts for different clients. Unlike many Google iOS app, chrome does not support switching your selected Google account. I’m signed in to all of my Google accounts in my phone, but in chrome, I can only access bookmarks and passwords for the “default” account, which just happens to be the first one that I signed in with. Google’s support docs indicate to “switch” the “default” account selected in chrome, I need to log out of my currently “selected” “default” account (I say “selected” since I not not actually select anything - chrome chose for me). The problem with this guidance is that all Google apps on iOS have their login sessions synced. If I sign into 3 Google accounts in Google Drive, they will all 3 be signed in on chrome as well. Vice versa, if I log out of my accounts in chrome, I will get logged out in Drive, which is undesirable.
Pop-ups
by Bee-Bee Cyndaquil on 2018/02/09 01:18
Despite the fact that I have checked my settings numerous times and have “block pop-ups” enabled, I continue to be bombarded by quite obviously malicious pop-ups. The only options I have are to press “ok” and quickly close the tab that is now open to a malicious site, or completely delete the app every time that happens (about every 45 seconds on certain sites.) I used to love using this app for all of my internet browsing, but it has been rendered unusable. Constantly getting pop-ups on wikipedia pages and articles from reputable sources (which I have no problems with on my computer) is absolutely unacceptable. I love google products and the company, and if this problem is fixed then I will most certainly continue using this app as my main browser, but for now I simply cannot because I have to protect my device and my security. Truly disappointing.
Problem saving bookmarks
by De Vanna 7654 on 2018/03/08 14:40
Right now, it is really annoying to save bookmarks. My Bookmark Bar has 14 main folders and 186 subfolders (yes, I just counted), plus hundreds of actual bookmarked sites. The bookmarked sites don't show up while I try to save a new bookmark... but the 186 subfolders do. So if I need to save a new bookmark, this app forces me to scroll past ALL of my folders and subfolders (which this app alphabetizes - meaning they are NOT arranged in the order I have them on desktop) to FIND the folder I want to Save Bookmark in. This is ridiculous. I would LOVE to be able to FIRST select one of the 14 main folders in my Bookmarks Bar, and THEN scroll to the correct subfolder and simply save the new bookmark. Funny enough, this is the EXACT system you have in place for FINDING a bookmark that I've already saved. Sooo... you have a great system in place for FINDING a bookmark, but SAVING A NEW ONE is a nightmare. If you could find it in your hearts to update this, I'd be hugely grateful!!
Old look is dead
by bitterpoet on 2018/12/14 05:08
Google officially killed the old look of Chrome. You used to be able to revert to the older and more functional layout by adjusting hidden flags. This was removed in the latest update and I really hate it. The new look makes everything too big. Finding tabs is actually harder and the new tab manager makes tabs not “feel” like web pages. Every time I open a new tab I almost hit the “close all” button which would be catastrophic. This looks closer to Safari than ever. If I wanted Safari, I’d just use it since it’s already in my phone. Google should be setting themselves apart and pushing the standards and not following other tech companies. I also just don’t understand why the new “in” look is flat graphics, oversized buttons or icons, and huge amounts of wasted whitespace. I have a large phone. I don’t need help with giant menus and buttons that look like they were designed for a senior citizen who forgot their glasses. And what does Google have against labels on the bottom menu bar and in the tab switcher? Sometimes I like to read what I’m about to select before I touch it. The one good thing is the compact menu. It’s concise and reachable. Bring back the customizability that used to exist in software and let me choose how I make my own device look. I don’t need to be forced into the user experience that you think I want.
Change to look of chrome
by Camlav16 on 2018/09/09 12:52
I first have to say that I love chrome. It was always my browser of choice. I just updated it and now it’s not as good. I’m sure bugs were fixed and things were improved but what I really don’t like about the new chrome is the new set look. The think I loved about the only look was the sharpness of everything. It looked really good and totally different from any browser. Then you roll out this new look, and let me say that it is terrible the sharpness is gone and everything feels like it’s made for the elderly and children. It is terrible looking. Everything is sized up to be bigger and everything looks like it’s child guarded. It just doesn’t look right. I’ve searched for a way to change it back but that doesn't seem to be an option. I would delete this review if an option was made to allow you to change it back.
Overall a great browser for mobile with some kinks
by Myrkskog on 2018/10/02 19:56
I love chrome mostly because it saves my passwords and bookmarks in the same place. I use chrome on my PC, and its also nice to see my open tabs on my iPad or phone when I walk into another room and forget what the screen said. Writing this reveiew because I just found a pretty horrendous bug in this app involving the Gmail web client on the iPad 9.6 running iOS 11.4. Was trying to send an email within the “compose” popup within the Chrome Browser. I typed my whole email then selected to add an attachment. I didn’t see my file, so I selected to cancel the file upload. This brought me to a blank Chrome logo and the Chrome app was unresponsive. I was forced to reset the app causing me to lose my work. Hope they fix this quick because its a repro rate of 100%.
Stopped using due to full screen spam ads
by xocoatlturtle on 2018/03/15 14:28
I've always enjoyed using Chrome as my default browser on iPhone, until about two months ago i began experiencing spam ads that would pop up and take over the entire app functioning. Even when I would close the window and the app and reopen it, the ad would pop up again. There was no option except to click on the ad, which one time i did, and it led me to further spam pages that asked me for my personal info. I have even deleted the app from my phone and then downloaded it again, but inevitably the same thing would happen again. Because of this, unfortunately I have had to stop using Chrome. This problem has not occurred with Safari, so for now I'm sticking with that. I'm writing this in the hopes that it can be addressed, so I can safely return to using Chrome again. Thank you!
Unnecessary Changes
by stonestonebrick on 2018/09/18 02:27
I really liked the interface of Chrome. It was fairly similar to adjust to from the PC because they are so similar. Now I have to adapt to this new interface that looks similar to Safari. I dislike Safari's interface with the tabs and other settings in a low bar because I felt that it was inconvenient. Now that Chrome has switched to this new interface, I find it very difficult to adjust my mind on this system especially since this is the browser that I only use. I do like that I can access many of the settings (e.g. History) without having to open up a new tab. Other than this, there weren't any issues the previous interface. It would be lovely if the developers reach back for a conversation with this. If not, then either give us the option to use the previous interface or undo the update.
Constant Crashing
by DoubleeDee on 2020/06/23 00:09
Chrome has been my main browser for yearsss. As of lately, it constantly crashes. Everytime I close out of it to check on a different app, when I open it back up I have to Restore my tabs. But there have been multiple times when I open it up and it doesn’t give me the option to restore. I have to scroll and scroll and scroll through my history to try and find the pages I had open. The first time it did it was when I had certain tabs up for a long time and it was impossible to find them again since the date I originally opened them were more than a week or two old. Wish they would fix it. An update late last year had this same kind of bug, but I thought it had been fixed. Pleaaase get this corrected!
Close All Option Needs to Be Fixed!!!!
by SDJ8684 on 2021/05/22 02:26
I use chrome as my preferred browser of choice. On the desktop, it’s great. However, the app for iPhone need some improvement. I am an individual that likes to keep MANY web browser tabs open, I mean upwards of 30+ tabs, either for reminders, quick reference, or follow up on reading something that I didn’t have time to. I absolutely HATE that the “close all” command is located on the lower left side of the screen. I have accidentally pressed that option on more than one occasion and it’s infuriating that there is not a simple “Are you sure you want to close all tabs” prompt. I wish that Google would consider this or at least allow users to restore ALL closed tabs and not just “recent” tabs. Google please consider this!!!!
Increasingly poor & invasive updates
by holly519 on 2019/02/14 04:56
Breaking my silence in the 7yrs I’ve shopped in the App Store w/o one review to express my frustration w/ the most recent update to the Google Chrome app that I’m using on my new generation iPad. One, it auto-updated; so that p*ssed me off, on sight. Then, when I saw how utterly hideous the pages were, that added a whole other level of outrage. I’ve been too busy this week to research ways to reverse the update (like I successfully did with my phone) and got a feel for the performance, which - not to my surprise - is also lackluster. Additionally, the bottom toolbar that holds the autocorrect/-fill covers the content near the bottom of the page, which was not the case in previous versions. So not only am I being force-fed your incompetence, I will also be forced to look at your ugly mug during that realization..? No bueno. The Google’s privacy violations were more than enough, actively researching alternatives.
From great to terrible
by Jjjjjjjjkjkkkk on 2019/07/04 13:04
I’ve been using just chrome for years, until recently been going great. However now that I can literally not search for anything on chrome without 100,000 ads popping up for my search, especially if it’s a product. And this is not just on chrome, it’s any app I use that has ads. For example. I recently purchased a different VPN since my ISP(looking at you Spectrum) is terrible. I’ve already purchased the product through no effort on chromes part. Now I cannot pull anything up without seeing an ad for it. And I do mean I cannot get away from it on any apps, even after marking the ad as irrelevant. Pop up blockers are apparently being disabled, started seeing more and more get through so I guess it’s time to switch back to Firefox only. And please note, when force fed ads over and over for products means I will never buy said product at all or ever again.
I hate using chrome on iOS can’t restore tabs after it crashes
by Ginamarina on 2020/06/04 22:39
This app is awful. It errors often (“oh snap!”), and crashes pretty consistently - losing every open tab. I have syncing on, but it rarely actually syncs. Unlike Firefox, you can’t manually sync. (That I can find). I’m so tired of chrome, and google’s stuff is proprietary enough that you can’t choose other default browsers. I just lost another 40-some tabs today. Chrome let me restore them after the first crash, then proceeded to crash again. I reopened chrome, saw it “sync”, it crashed again, and when I tried to recover recent tabs, there was nothing - because it synced right after it crashed! Too frustrating to depend on. I looked on my pc’s browser and it showed no synced tabs from my iPad. This has been going on for over 2 years with no improvement. Bookmark all open tabs regularly or you’ll be screwed. :(
Typing lags and bookmark icons have disappeared.
by Kirk Markarian on 2017/12/06 04:02
UPDATE: Still issues. Now the bookmarks don't show unless I go hunting for them in a menu. So, now they are still gone from the old bookmark grid page style AND NOW I have to actually LOOK for them. Why? Browser is slow, typing lags horribly, bookmarks icons disappear when scrolling down the screen. Chrome for iPad keeps forgetting my passwords. Please let us have the old bookmark method back, where we would have larger square icons that did not disappear when I scroll down the screen AND they sorted themselves horizontally across the screen, from left to right. I remove the titles on all of my bookmarks to be able to fit more on my desktop Chrome browser. The list-view of small icons is really poor design. I used to rave about how wonderful this browser was, but back in March, it seems to have taken a turn for the worse.
New update is a tad buggy
by chickennuggetqween on 2018/03/25 05:09
The recent March update has a few issues with it? The main issue I face is when I try to hit the tab button and look at all of my open tabs. When I exit a tab to do that, all of my tabs disappear and I can only see the black/grey background, along with the New Tab, Tab Count, and Options buttons. When I hit them they don't do anything, and I have to restart the app to have my tabs come back. I can't tell if it's because I have a gazillion tabs open (which I wasn't facing this issue a few days ago, before I updated and had a bunch of tabs open) or if it's just a bug with the new update. Otherwise, it works great! I just hope this gets fixed :D
This was great
by Chris while driving on 2018/10/10 00:07
I love chrome. I gave it 2 stars, but let’s be honest, it’s still the best browser out there. BUT, this new update took a 5 star rating and turned it into a 2 Star. I abhor tr new layout. I stopped using safari precisely because I HATED the forward and back (and all the function buttons for that matter) buttons along the bottom of the screen. It makes zero sense to have address and navigation buttons in different places. Chrome had it beautifully placed. And what do they do? take 10 steps back to do exactly what their competitors failed to move on from 8 years ago. Their multiple tabs are not nearly as easily reached and navigated. Not tough to use at all, but another definite step back in terms of intuitive design. I’m not here telling you not to download it, but for the LOVE OF GOD put stuff back where it belongs!!!!!
LOVE the Update!
by AngDeHoo on 2018/11/18 20:23
No more thumb stretch, HOORAY!!! I LOVE that you moved the back button and tabs down to the bottom! My thumb thanks you as well. I try to never use Safari so I can’t say if it looks like Safari as the Reviewer who didn’t care for the update mentioned. Frankly, I only care about the “useability” (this should be a word and not 2 words). I’m a busy mom with young kids so I need to be able to navigate quickly and switch between saved tabs often for teams schedules and recipes and shopping and poison control. You have made that infinitely easier with this update. BAM 6 screen views at once, swipe for 6 more....GAME CHANGER....dogs that ate entire packages of Oreos saved! Thank you.
TABS AUTOMATICALLY OPENING
by WhoIsAdrian on 2021/03/22 07:04
I keep deleting Chrome app off my iPhone XS Max and re-downloading it in hopes of fixing this huge annoying problem. The problem: Every time I open a new tab it automatically sends me to another tab (usually the top left tab) I already had open. It’s clearly a bug because I’ve deleted all my caches and cookies multiple times and no luck. I usually have 6-10 tabs open. For years this never happened. Now for months this has been happening. And yes it’s on the latest update as well as my iOS. It’s like when you open your car door but then your truck opens up on its own. It’s like taking a bite out of pizza but then you realize you just ate a boring piece of dried broccoli. It’s like working at Google for $150,000 a year as a programmer on the iOS Chrome app but then realize you broke what was never broken to begin with on your updates. 😐
Password saving feature broken for good
by Enzfau on 2020/04/29 22:11
I loved chrome as long as it lasted . But there is really no support system if something does not work . The password saving feature broke on my Mac, while it still works on other computers where I had my profile installed . But that does not help me a bit. I looked into every resource , downloaded the passwords, reinstalled them, even looked I to some quite tech websites and did everything suggested , wasted plenty of time on that . Final verdict - a browsing Maschine that collects all my personal information and passwords already makes me uncomfortable ( even I could not resist the convenience for the longest time ) but passwords that first start changing randomly and then the whole password saving function runs amok without that chrome has a solution for that made me pull the plug .
Use this over Safari
by Mixus-Laxus on 2018/09/16 18:44
Occasionally safari won’t show something properly or won’t respond to a button press. Chrome has been less buggy, even with the Apple website, which did not load the iPhone XS preorder page properly. I tried opening it in chrome and it worked just fine. Same thing with the Razer Blade website, button presses responded more often. Safari loaded something that chrome didn’t only once, which was the Samsung Galaxy website. Also safari doesn’t sync with my PC, which Chrome does, so that’s a plus. It also has a smarter layout and the new update makes it look better than ever.
Please remove tab groups
by Romans12357 on 2021/09/21 05:03
The tab groups are horrible. As someone that rarely uses more than a few tabs I get absolutely no benefit from having tab groups. However, it makes using the browser much more annoying. Because all the tabs are at the very top of the screen, I can’t reach hem without moving my hand. If they were at least centered on the screen, it would be slightly more bearable. But the whole functionality just adds unnecessary and useless complexion. Overall, it makes the app much more frustrating to use. It would be nice if there was a setting to turn tab groups off. It should be fairly simple to implement since the browser has had no tab groups until fairly recently. But that would require actually giving users some form of customization and allowing them to use the product in a way that works for them.
Back to Safari for now
by nyjenvt on 2021/03/23 16:41
Recently switched to the Chrome app with an iPhone 12 Pro upgrade. I use Chrome on my PC so was excited at the thought of being able to seamlessly switch from phone to PC when needed and especially now that Chrome can be set to default browser with iOS 14. Way too many bugs in the iOS version though. Like many others have mentioned, page competition consistently messes up and jumps off the screen to the left, pages wiggle left and right when scrolling not allowing for a quick enough scroll, and I’ve experienced not being able to scroll many pages in general, with the page constantly jumping back to the top as I try to scroll down. Simply way too bugs to continue using when I’ve never had any of these issues with Safari. I’ll be sticking with Safari until these bugs are fixed.
First app review !
by Sjayy316 on 2020/09/11 09:08
I don’t do many reviews for apps in this store but ... Google chrome is amazing especially for storing data on your phone and computer, makes it so much easier, this version is great, I had this issue yesterday, I literally thought of suggesting to allow to use my chrome passwords , the only thing at the time was downloading all your passwords in PDF form, now Apple and google has made it so you can select auto fill passwords , chrome now is one of them! So I have my Apple and chrome all in one place. Maybe you saw me have the issue lol. Thanks for one of the best browsers and now more simple to use our stored private data.
Latest Update Ruined the App
by lxhford on 2019/03/17 10:21
This has always been my favorite browser but the last few updates have no improved the app. The latest update has caused the keyboard to be so laggy that it is unusable. Also, my search suggestions stopped showing up from Google. Another recent update changed the layout to match Safari. I used to love to swipe through all of my open tabs & close the ones I needed to close quickly & easily. Now, the app goes to the “tiled” screen, where you see several tiny versions of each page. I have to click on each one to even tell what many of them are, & most of the time that page has to reload & many times fails doing that! It takes about 5x as long to go through & close tabs. Super annoying. Bring back the old way! (But first, fix the laggy keyboard because I can’t even use Chrome at this point. 🙄)
I have an issue while uploading
by Wrine on 2018/09/11 21:10
I enjoy this browser. However I want to address that since the last update and this new firmware I have an issue with uploading documents online on this browser. I’m using an IPad Pro 10.5. On the last firmware anytime I selected the document and hit upload it will just go white with the google chrome logo in the center of the screen. With this new firmware, once I hit upload and it will display my open tabs, and I’m able to exit the tab selection by tapping on done. I have closed the app and have attempted over and over. I hate using Safari, but I need to upload my resume. Please fix!
Love it. Hate the update. Any way to downgrade?
by Lucy Blossom🌸 on 2019/02/18 23:06
Just use actual Chrome on a computer, it works way better then this app which has disappointed me more then I expected. I love using this app, but the update has completely threw me off. I often use google and when I'm scrolling down, my fingers are always on the bottom of the screen and swiping things all the time. I read a lot and the new google update isn't helping. I prefer the old version where everything is on top of the screen where I can easily swipe up to hide and not accidentally click a button to go back or forth when I don't need to. I just want to know if there's anyway to downgrade the app. I also had over 100 tabs open. I lost it all in an instant and have NO way of getting them back. I haven't the slightest clue what majority of the tabs were called and it's extremely difficult to try to find EVERYTHING all over again which I don't have time for. I need a section in which the tabs I have recently deleted, ON ACCIDENT CAUSE IM NOT STUPID ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY WILLINGLY DO THAT, can be replaced in an instant. Without going into my history, because let's be honest. History is a mix of what happened on one tab. NOT ON ALL TABS THAT WE HAD. It's really starting to annoy me by how google chrome is starting to fail.
I love it but seriously
by InfernalNouva on 2018/09/26 06:25
Hey. No issues with the software as a whole, except one thing. And it has been there as long as I can remember. The close all tabs option. It’s ALWAYS been too close to the create new something or other and it doesn’t ask if you’re sure. Important purchase you’re working on, gone. Website you were saving for later, gone. Tabs you keep around just in case, gone. It just goes ahead and wipes everything. And with the most recent update it’s RIGHT NEXT TO THE CREATE NEW TAB OPTION. Can we at least give it an extra alert that asks,”are you sure you want to delete all tabs?” As a computer programmer this isn’t that hard. Please, I’m begging you.
Terrible update
by dnrkaoabale cu on 2019/11/29 21:01
The interface is super clunky, and way more annoying than the streamlined tab layout from before where there was a small, unobtrusive button that opened the menu for the rest of the features like settings, bookmarks, history, etc., the fact that the bar is on the bottom of the screen now is just disorienting. I initially chose chrome because I liked the simple streamlined layout and safari had the clunky ui, but now chrome looks worse than safari, aesthetically speaking. Maybe give users the option to revert to the former? I like chrome and don’t want to stop using the app, but this update is definitely not worth the hassle. Edit: the app crashes way more frequently with this update as well
What’s going on? If it ain’t broke- leave alone!
by Tenderheart45 on 2018/09/21 05:49
Sorry, but the latest update leaves something to be desired. Been trying to get used to it in last few days and there’s just something off about it. It’s lots more difficult to go back to a previous page, in fact, sometimes the back arrows are totally missing as well as other selections that used to be self evident. And I don’t like that black background! Yuk! Depressing!! Did you test this on anyone before you rolled it out? And the auto save of passwords feature seems to have decided to not work! I really liked that, but now it doesn’t even ask if I want Chrome to save or update for me, or it does so intermittently. Think you have some ‘splaining to do or fix it please! Thanks.
2 stars.. annoying problem.
by cyberhugs on 2021/02/01 18:13
I am a mobile chrome user myself, and have alwayd delt with the same problem, I have an iphone 8 which by itself is a kind of small phone so when it comes to the size of the screen its gonna be tough. But safari and other search engines have a zoom setting in the app or in the working tab, I know there is a text zoom setting on chrome but that only makes the text smaller that doesnt resolve the issue, lets say for example I wanted to read an article. The page on chrome was too small to read parts of the article and i couldnt zoom out it would just stay still and make the page go backwards if that makes sense. Developers of chrome please make a zoom page button where you can make the page more spacious, Thank you!!
Issues with playing audio while screen is off
by lawshuajaw on 2020/01/07 16:58
Since the iOS 13 update I have had an issue with being able to play audio from any website in the background while my screen is turned off. Within about 1-2 min of the screen turning off the audio ceases to play until I unlock my phone and hit the play button on the site again. This makes it almost impossible to listen to any podcast without downloading the appropriate app, or as I learned last night, playing the audio in Safari. I much prefer the UI in Chrome and rather be able to use it exclusively, but as of now the only way for me to listen to most podcasts is by opening the site in Safari and playing it from there.
I love Chrome
by troysteris on 2018/09/26 20:41
Chrome surpassed IE and now Edge a long time ago. Even on my iPad I prefer it to Safari, but one thing I wish Chrome and Safari would allow the user to do is set the default to always give us the Desktop version of the sites we visit. I hate having to go in for each site, every time I open a new tab, and telling it to give me the Desktop version. I only go to Desktop versions. I understand not everyone wants to pay for the extra data, but I suspect there are many people out there like me who don’t concern themselves with the extra data costs and need or want the full site. Please give us the option to make that a default setting.
I use opera browser now
by theLEGENDofALDO on 2020/11/12 04:33
I used to love chrome on PC but it’s a memory hog. This new update on iPhone makes it where anytime I go to see my tabs it randomly opens a tab. I have to click open tabs again and if I have a lot of tabs open I lose my place because it’s always random and sometimes scroll through tabs to get to where I want. There’s also a problem that happens in all sites from high mobile compatibility NYTimes and NPR to Wordpress blogging sites whenever I’m scrolling down the site will randomly jump to the top. Sometimes I can’t get past the first couple paragraphs I have to close the app and try again. Sometimes I just switch to safari. Lately I’ve been using opera on PC. I switched to opera on iPhone I don’t have to worry about random actions happening when I’m trying to read an article. It was a good run Chrome. Take care.
The new chrome looks great
by Thunder 2711 on 2018/10/19 02:31
I absolutely love the new look of chrome as it is just more simplistic and the the multi-tasking mode makes things so much easier! This is something different which is great in my mind, it’s more of a browser made for the phone that works well with the display, rather than safari for example, which in my opinion was made just to access the internet and it doesn’t work well, whereas the new chrome is even better than it was before! I love it!! Keep up the good work!! *** Forgot to say that I love the idea of all the utilities such as searching is at the bottom for easy access!! :D
iPhone X Users Avoid
by Moontei on 2017/12/07 00:09
I’ve been a longtime Chrome user on multiple iPhones throughout the years and overall it has been decent....until now. Even after all this time and multiple updates since the iPhone X was released, Chrome is still practically unusable on Apple’s new flagship device in landscape mode. In landscape mode it zooms in the page and won’t let you zoom out to see the whole webpage (seems this varies depending on the site). Another glaring issue is that you can’t tap the top of the screen to instantly scroll to the top of the current page in landscape mode. I’ve sent constructive feedback a few times already and never gotten a reply or even acknowledgement of them receiving it. Guess the team at google just don’t plan on fixing this glaring issue. iPHONE X USERS AVOID!
Held back by Apple
by blaine00 on 2019/11/05 13:06
I love Chrome, but this version is held back by Apple’s unfair and anticompetitive rules. I really hope that Apple adopt ethical app store guidelines that ensures a level playing field for all who enter. This browser can’t be as good as the built-in Safari browser because Apple forces 3rd party browsers to use the mobile Safari engine. In the meantime, Safari on iPad gets to use a full big-boy desktop engine. On the bright side, it is nice to have my Chrome bookmarks and passwords sync over. Too bad Apple won’t allow Google to also implement Chrome extensions. If that were something Google could control, I’d remove a star.
Unusually High Battery Consumption
by runTAKESHI on 2018/10/28 17:35
Hi Google team, I'm not sure why this is happening, but currently browsing through some pages and searches the app has consumed 40% of my battery's life in 20 minutes. Even opening after closing all other apps and opening chrome to view the opening page used up 2% (17% down to 15%) while on low battery mode. My phone has at most run 5-6 other apps today. By some deduction I found that chrome was responsible for the unusually high battery consumption. Please feel free to contact me for any other follow-up questions. This seems to be a disturbingly odd for a browser's behavior.
Update no longer saves incognito sessions
by HumbuckerMan on 2018/04/04 01:15
As stated in the title, after updating, it seems as though my sessions while browsing incognito do not get saved like they used to. Prior to this, I could close the app or leave it in the background and it would go back to incognito and IF I ever did lose my session, it would ask me to restore (to no avail due to it being incognito, which is expected and I was ok with that). Whenever I open the app now, it won’t even ask to “restore session” so I am assuming that this is intentional? If so, I am not a fan of this change but I am writing this to make you all aware of this change/bug. The app itself is good and I wish I could set it as my default browser to open links and what not. Thanks.
Not a fan of v69
by Person73847383848 on 2018/10/10 20:28
I used the new version for a few days to give it a chance. I like the way it looks but I hate everything else about it. What's with the GIANT real estate-hogging search button? Are people really so lazy that they want this? It functions exactly the same as tapping the URL bar. Pointless waste of space. Put the reload button back in the toolbar please. Or somewhere at the top. There are plenty of places it could go. I really hate the new tab management page too. I miss that you can't swipe to close them. Feels extremely clunky. I don't mind the navigation being at the bottom, and because of that I've switched to Safari for the time being. Not happy about it as I've previously avoided Safari like the plague but at least it has features I'll actually use. Can't say that about this latest Chrome update, so, goodbye.
