New Issue
by Hopelove&potatoes on 2020/08/14 11:27
Since I updated Chrome today it’s developed a weird glitch that’s really annoying me and I would like to have it fixed. For some strange reason, although I close tabs, a specific set continues to appear whenever I swipe-close and open the app even if I’ve deleted them. And I am also getting a NsCocoaErrorDomain 512 that prevents any picture or file downloads. I did hard reset and check my phone for connection issues and updates but there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong outside of Chrome. So to the Developers of Chrome, please kindly find a way to solve this issue. (And please make Chrome stable again)

More Unstable All the Time
by HappyPhysicist on 2020/08/13 07:49
First of all, iPad Chrome is better than Safari, a lot better. That said, a LOT could and should be done to make it more customizable, similar to the desktop version (hello, bigger fonts). The biggest problem is that they keep throwing out unstable new builds that end up requiring a lot more updates to get things right. In the last few hours alone, I’ve seen countless “aww, snap,” or whatever they call those sudden page crashes. On top of that, the entire app will sometimes just collapse and die on me. Some sites and behaviors are more risky than others, but the root cause is positively Chrome. I will prove it to you in a couple of weeks, after they’ve put out four or five more updates...... btw, stop blaming the pandemic for everything and just reinvent how you work to end these types of development issues. If you have developers who are unwilling or unable to work effectively from home, hire an unemployed disabled guy (me) who dreams of the opportunity!
Zooming in does not work
by VadMK on 2020/08/13 06:03
Every time I try to zoom in on a web page Chrome jumps back to the initial state. Double tap to zoom does not work everywhere on the screen: just on the left side. Very clumsy to use

by last review requiring nickname on 2020/08/11 16:02
I downloaded this app and it deleted my Notes app and replaced it with a Google Notes app but did not save any of my files within the Notes app. Fortunately the iCloud back up enabled me to restore my iPad to its previous condition and all of my notes which included many links to important data were restored.
Constantly freezes - blegh

Without fail - about 30 seconds after opening browser it will freeze solid, unresponsive and need to shut/restart. Safari or Firefox have no such issues
Saved passwords are not safe
by Mohxx on 2020/08/11 12:10
This is totally insane, chrome offers to save username and passwords of websites you visit. When you go to setting you can reveal passwords to “see the saved passwords”. So what if someone took my phone and go to setting and see ALL my saved passwords? This is so INSECURE.

Censored information
by fairies68 on 2020/08/10 14:17
I’ve always used chrome as my main browser but that has recently changed. Whenever I want real information, that’s not censored or controlled I use other browsers. They invade our privacy and control what we see, what’s the point of information you can’t trust?
Held back for iOS.
by SKF27 on 2020/08/10 02:21
Like the YouTube app, Chrome on iOS is competent but seems clearly held back for iOS. Other third party browsers offer Chromecast support but Chrome does not on iOS. There’s also no reader mode I’ve found, you cannot easily switch between accounts like on gmail, and why is the share button at the top in the url bar instead of at the bottom in the overflow menu? I use Chrome on my MacBook so I’m a fan (though it is a memory hog). I would like Chrome on iOS to meet the standards of other mobile browsers. My guess is the Chrome iOS team is certainly working hard but not being given the support they need.
“Close All” strikes again!
by Sweet Greggo on 2020/08/09 19:04
I love the app but man I wish they would move the “Close all” option to a menu or at the very least make a confirmation pop up before it closes EVERY page with no option to undo! Several times I’ve accidentally brushed that with my thumb and POOF! everything is just GONE. >:(
Chrome is all we need, thank you very much
by nammai25 on 2020/08/09 17:52
Chrome is one of the many apps I use on a day-to-day basis, so why bother if I choose a different browser every single day?! I like the way how the browser syncs all of my things, like bookmarks, history, and tabs on any device, so I can access them whenever I need to. Same goes for the data. While I like the many features in the mobile version of Google Chrome, I have found quite a few flaws. Among them are the lack of extension support (on PCs and Macs), a reduced set of preferences, limited ability to display the desktop version of some (but not all) websites, and the ability to make Chrome the default browser in iOS (as Apple does not allow it, instead making Safari the default browser system-wide; in macOS, this is no problem at all). But otherwise, this is a great app if you want to surf the Internet and rely on the power of Google on the go. (And in the process, saving lots of hassle!)
Zoom completely broken | Elements keep moving around
by ilikemyrealname on 2020/08/09 12:25
UPDATE: It’s been weeks now since my previous review. Chrome is still broken to the point of being unusable. I switched to Safari for a while but now I’ve moved on to Brave. As someone who owns a Chromebook, I’m really disappointed in the state of their browser. I’ll keep checking from time to time to see if these issues get resolved but until they do, I have to use different browsers for different devices because Chrome on IOS is broken. Biggest tech company can’t even keep their flagship browser in a usable state. PREVIOUS REVIEW: Chrome has a major glitch. Anytime I attempt to zoom into a website, Chrome completely errors out with “Aw snap” and the entire website is gone and must be reloaded. This has been happening for weeks now and happens every time I try to zoom in. New issue has started. The browser can’t sit still and keeps moving elements around. For instance, text I’m reading will jump up or down the page making it impossible to read. The only way to get around this is to keep one finger on the screen and keep slightly moving up and down. But not 2 fingers because that can count as a zoom and, as I mentioned above, will break the browser completely with the “Am Snap” issue. Between these 2 glitches, Chrome has become unusable at this time. Chrome is broken as of writing this review. I’ve gone back to Safari and will continually check up on Chrome until the devs finally work through these bugs. (Also I have copied my review as Apple’s App Store has started a habit of removing my reviews. If they continue with this behavior I will simply re-add my review each time.)

Chrome crashed and lost all tabs
by Kriss Alpha on 2020/08/08 02:22
But the worst part is that it gave me a button to restore all tabs so I went to close all of my open apps except Chrome to clear up my RAM, I was about to press the restore button and then it went away, on its own, without me pressing anything, because it was on a timer. Why is that a thing!? What kind of pea brained person designed that!? And I know it wasn’t like that before because it used to show up on the bottom with an x button to close it. AND WHY IN GODS NAME IS THERE NO OPTION TO REOPEN ALL CLOSED TABS ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE APP!? Oh and I tried to open the tabs on my computer but it already managed to delete all of the tabs from my cloud sync without a second thought because of course it would.

Make it easier to reload
by PorgArmy on 2020/08/07 00:44
Way too often my app crashes or “doesn’t shut down correctly” and all the tabs I was saving are usually just lost. The reload tabs button works but it’s annoying to use because more often than not, the thing disappears before I even get to tap or realize it. Then boom, all of my important information is just gone. This app should be updated so the button stays on screen longer or is accessible semi-permanently from a spot on the tool/settings bar This is my only problem and I would greatly appreciate it being fixed, thank you.

Stops Scrolling
by ifitdifyocotofyo on 2020/08/06 20:35
Whenever I’m on the shopping tab/filter scrolling thru, eventually it stops scrolling about halfway down. Also when I open an item in a new tab, it still opens up in the tab I’m already on. I opened it up in a new tab for a reason.

by K7TOR on 2020/08/05 05:22
Everytime I restart the app or just open it again, google chrome just deletes and opens a new brand new tab where I can search up things. The search history still exists but the tab gets deleted and replaced with a new one. Quite annoying honestly. Not sure if working as intended, but I want a clear answer.

by Kouhaikun on 2020/08/02 22:29
Whenever I leave chrome in the background or close it, I discover that it rolls back all progress I’ve made in regards to browsing webpages and tabs opened when I reopen it. I’ll be reading an article and go onto the next one and when I come back to chrome, it’ll be on the previous article. But that’s not all. It rolls back to pages/tabs I was last browsing days ago! Please fix this. This is really annoying as someone who does a lot of reading.

Constant crashing
by Rockport, Maine on 2020/08/01 17:37
Second Update 8/1/20: After reading reviews about so many other people having these exact same problems for months now, I decided to try Microsoft Edge. After about an hour of browsing, not one website page crashed. I may end up deleting Google Chrome if the Microsoft app continues to impress me. It’s a shame because I have used Google and Google Chrome for many years and was happy until these multiple problems started and continued getting worse. It shows me that Google does not care and now neither do I. Update 8/1/20: I downgraded my ratings to 1 star from 2 stars because of the continued problems and new problems us users are encountering. Websites are still constantly crashing, which is not why we use a web browser. Now tabs and websites disappear after closing Chrome, so either you go to history to find them or do not get to read what was saved in the tabs. I honestly expect more from a mega giant corporation like Google but it appears they are more interested in selling our private information than giving users a pleasant experience using their browser. This company has unlimited resources and the best talent available and can not give us a user friendly web browser? Something is seriously wrong and it is becoming apparent that Google inaction to fix known issues shows Google does not care. That is a shame and users deserve better. I used to love Google but lately it crashes constantly making it impossible to read and educate myself on the coronavirus newsfront. Numerous websites crash. I have written feedback asking for this to be repaired but so far 5hey have done nothing constructive to stop this problem. I am positive that if I am having this problem that numerous others do too. How about it Google? Want to make our experiences better and make this the pleasant app it used to be?

So, first off, it closes all 99 tabs I had open, and because you guys can’t search history based on device, I couldn’t find any of them again. Then you get stuck on the same three tabs opening every time I close and reopen the app, even after I closed them all and opened new tabs. Then when I delete the app and reinstall it, it isn’t synced up with my google account at all, unable to access the history or the bookmarks of my account. What is wrong with you guys?

The news links displayed on an empty tap is really sad. The majority of articles are clickbait and random cat videos. I have a cat myself and I am not amused... at all. Please show us some real news, not a 30 second clip of a cat watching someone eat a sandwich (literally) and title the news article “Physco Cat”. The article only had 1 sentence followed by the video. Very sad. It was literally just a video of a cat just sitting there with it’s eyes open. I should sue for the all the brain cells I lost watching that. Who job is it to pick articles and have them on chrome, a 6 year old? Sad!

i’m so sorry for google devs now because google is increasingly a flaming pile of poop. it’s creators left and it’s run by flashy modern bean counters now, and boy does it show. search: ignores terms, operation symbols, and pretty much everything. instead, it does whatever it wants, with lots of ads as well. photos: barely works on the web (for ipad pro), and somehow the app is worse. easily half the features are broken, it crashes, it won’t go back to a photo, the photo goes black, and etc. music? lol. who the hell knows anymore. of course, messaging/chat/blah blah remains the mess it’s always been. oh, and if you peek behind the curtain, your contacts are like spaghetti code personified. i am moving off google, except for gmail (to sign up for stuff, mostly). it’s a slow process because i used google heavily for many years—all their social stuff, keep, music, youtube (oh, and that blows too now, but not totally...yet), photos, mail, drive, and so on. and they kill stuff off endlessly. popular or not, google doesn’t give a fig. they won’t pay to have apps vetted properly in the play store, thus malware comes in waves, unendingly. i used to love chrome books, chrome browser, androids. not anymore. gonna be all apple, slowly slowly. apple remains user friendly. they improve things, they add useful features while staying true to simplicity. they *actually help* if there is a problem. i can’t even send feedback to google lately. it just crashes. sad.
Garbage. Absolutely awful.
by Kimjatheninja on 2020/07/25 23:28
The chrome app for iOS is absolute trash. It crashes consistently and wipes out all of my tabs so frequently that I’ve given up on it as my default browser. It’s even more disappointing because I have a Windows computer and it would be GREAT to be able to use across my phone and laptop...if it worked as it should. I get an “aw, snap” crash message and/or all of my tabs crashing daily. I’ve taken the time to clear my cache and cookies, and it’s still trash. One star because I have to give it at least one.
BUG - closing randomly
by AdrianneEs on 2020/07/25 19:40
Something is messed up with this AND search after the last updates because they close randomly after less than 2 minutes of use.
Glitches
by Anonymous0122 on 2020/07/25 15:09
It keeps resetting me back to previous day's tabs whenever I leave it alone for any length of time and I can not copy or paste anything outside of the link bar. Please fix this soon.
Chrome is all we need, thank you very much
by nammai25 on 2020/08/09 17:52
Chrome is one of the many apps I use on a day-to-day basis, so why bother if I choose a different browser every single day?! I like the way how the browser syncs all of my things, like bookmarks, history, and tabs on any device, so I can access them whenever I need to. Same goes for the data. While I like the many features in the mobile version of Google Chrome, I have found quite a few flaws. Among them are the lack of extension support (on PCs and Macs), a reduced set of preferences, limited ability to display the desktop version of some (but not all) websites, and the ability to make Chrome the default browser in iOS (as Apple does not allow it, instead making Safari the default browser system-wide; in macOS, this is no problem at all). But otherwise, this is a great app if you want to surf the Internet and rely on the power of Google on the go. (And in the process, saving lots of hassle!)
One Thing unappealing to my eyes
by Wise Twig on 2019/10/16 05:16
I think Chrome is a great app and, I have been using it for a few years. I didn’t think that you had to update it, so I missed it for a whole year. When I decided to update it, I first looked at the reviews. People had been saying that it had been jumbled up, but I didn’t see that. Another person said that it was harder to delete a tab (although, it wasn’t), so I tried deleting a tab. Usually it took away the tab slowly if it was my only one, and it would make me tap a plus sign to get another one. This time, It took it away very fast, and it hurt my eyes. Once it was there, and then you press an ‘x’ and it was gone. IT REALLY HURTS MY EYES! I wish I hadn’t even updated it. It may not seem serious, but it is to me!
Love Chrome but the new update is making things a hassle
by d bozo on 2020/03/24 20:23
Chrome is great for everything and works across all my devices so it’s nice but the app recently changed one of their buttons and is making it a hassle to use. The center button at the bottom of the screen used to pull up the search bar a the keyboard which made it easy instead of having to reach to the top of the screen to tap the omnibar to start searching. It is now a new tab button that is really frustrating as I instinctively tap that button when I pull up a new tab. So now I have to close the second new tab and then tap the omnibar at the top of my iPhone which has a pretty lengthy screen. A bit of a regression in terms of user friendliness so I’m writing this in hopes of them changing the button back or at least giving us the option to choose what the button does.
Never had any problems with it
by Jaden Dakota on 2017/09/15 22:32
I use it on my desktop, laptop, my phone, and pretty much every device I can put it on. I've been using chrome every since I was just a kid - and there's definitely not a better web application than this. it has more features than any other regular web browser that I have seen. furthermore, I absolutely have no idea why it has a 3 star rating on this app store. it should definitely have more considering the work and dedication Google has put Into this app. the interface is very smooth and comfortable to me and every single webpage loads flawlessly. if you are reading this I would definitely recommend chrome to you, no matter what anybody says. keep up the good work Google!
Unreliable and snooping
by Pfewy on 2020/03/06 20:14
Completely unreliable on iOS because if you forget an load a pdf webpage —-OOPS! You’ve just crashed Chrome and you’ll need to reload your pages. Sometimes they reload, sometimes they don’t. And Google INC will always have better data available to them than you will as to what your open pages were. Google’s Chrome is just another way for the company to track everything you do online and sell that data for advertising. Web pages frequently load slowly but in return for that you get the luxury of having adverts shoved in your face! BUY THINGS! NOW! Sometimes these ads will crash Chrome as well. Maybe it’s more secure than other browsers but it’s not secure from their data vacuuming. Back in the day, Chrome was really the only alternative to IE, but now there are lots of quite frankly better choices. I like DDG a lot. But if you like a lack of privacy and constant tracking and instability the this is your browser!
Just a blank screen and a sweet search bar,
by Crushed in Connecticut on 2017/11/20 08:21
Baby, that’s all we need. I have always liked googles minimalist approach and that’s why I use it over aol. Because I’m easily distracted. And now my phone, the brick of metal and glass that I use to obtain all my knowledge, is tainted. When I open my phone to search on chrome “who sings that song about a plastic cup?”, I have to get past all of my other notifications and try not to get sidetracked. And now, by adding news stories to the new tab tab, you have ruined everything. I can’t simply search for something. I’m now inundated with more “news” that I don’t care about interfering with my quest for knowledge. I’ve looked for a toggle to turn if off to no avail. I’ve used chrome for awhile but this is too much. I’m also upset you got rid of the 3D Touch, copy/paste option. That was the only time I ever used 3D Touch was to open articles (I found elsewhere) and read them. Please address these issues. Sour in Saskatoon
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.
New version an unusable Safari clone
by chitownriverscum on 2019/02/06 22:15
Okay, I’ve searched for something, and it was nice to be able to go back to the search results, and have them all still there so I could try multiple options for finding what I wanted. But that doesn’t mean it’s the only thing I EVER will want to search for. I try changing my search terms to refine my results, and Chrome snaps it back to the last thing I searched for, maybe... thinking that I had made a mistake when I changed it? I don’t get it. Also, before, you’d get the “sponsored” or “recommended“ results first, and you’d understand that you had to scroll past those ones to find what you needed. Now... there’s nothing past those ones! Maybe I’m going off the deep end, maybe there are some bugs with the new version that have yet to be ironed out ... but boy, is it sure annoying in the meantime! Like someone else said, if I wanted to use Safari, I would. Don’t be like Safari.
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.
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
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.
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!
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.
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!!!!!
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 .
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
“Add to Reading list” feature useful but limited
by Sujatha92 on 2019/02/24 15:11
Ability to tag websites to read later is helpful & I use it all the time. However google developers would’ve been smart to take this feature a few steps further — 1. to be able to create folders within the “read later” option 2. Enable users to create bookmark these sites directly from “read later” list. As it is, if I want to add a permanent bookmark to a site I’ve marked as “read later” I have to open the site and create bookmark from that point. It should be doable just from the “read later” list. Chrome is still the fastest and most user friendly web search engine out there.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Great app obviously but one annoying glitch
by Sambehm12 on 2018/01/19 14:59
Google chrome is obviously a great app, and you don’t need me to tell you that. However, there as been one glitch lately that has been very annoying and the reason I am writing this review. About 75% of the time that I try to quickly google something, as I’m typing into the search bar, my keyboard disappears making me accidentally click on the suggested news on the homepage. This gets very annoying when I am attempting to quickly google something, and I do believe the problem is in the app as my phone doesn’t do this on any other app. Please help me with this so I can love Google Chrome again.
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.
Best thing ever
by qwedfhftgf on 2020/04/06 22:37
I have been using chrome for a while it is an amazing app read some of the views but it is a great app but I do have some ideas to make it better you don’t have to take these but make it where you can make an article because some people have things to say I think they should have a voice and try as hard as you can to add games because my kids love to play games on my phone but they go on chrome thinking it’s a game but then when they see it they get disappointed because they wanted to play a game but they have not explored I have not even explored but it is a great app
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.
Death to bing (a comedy monologue by billy)
by Zom bæ bæ0172 on 2018/01/10 22:25
I mean just applause to google for completely slaughtering bing, like what’s bing? I do not know. Like the only other browser that people still kinda know exists is safari and that’s because it comes with iPhones even though no one wants it, like that bs U2 album. Honestly who even likes U2 anymore, I’m being honest when I say that I’ve never heard one of their songs. If you have, applause to you for having such a long attention span, because that stuff is BOORRINNG. It’s very sad though that we’ve lost bing, I think I will set up a funeral for them, be right back —————————————————————————————— BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR MY NEXT SCETCH, THE FUNERAL OF BING!!!!!!!
Bookmarks are gone, not user friendly
by chelleperu on 2018/03/16 05:10
I really wanted to like this app since I use chrome on my MacBook and google drive is very important for my school work. Unfortunately, chrome for iPhone is not very user friendly which is surprising coming from google. Bookmarks should be the first thing you should see when you open a new page, not articles or ads you think we want to see. (We are humans, our interests always change, we look up random things we aren’t interested in.... stop trying to show us what YOU think we should look at). It’s also hard to sort through different pages you have open since they all basically pile on top of each other instead of being more spread it to see what was on that page. Guess I’m switching back to safari.
Love it
by jamiewamiewhatever on 2020/01/10 21:03
I love using chrome on my phone and that I can send a link from one of my devices to another without saving it as a bookmark and finding it(like as if I was playing that game called Where is Waldo?) but I would like it what my suggest is about so it can be easier for me to swap profiles between my home account and school account. The suggestion that I think is going to be beneficial to everyone: create an update where people on mobile that have chrome installed and has different gmail accounts and that people can just click swap profile just like on the computer, and that the data would be in separate areas but won’t be affected with combining them together and just call it a night.
Latest version is awful
by kaptkirk12 on 2018/06/09 20:35
The latest version (june 2018) is the worst ever. It crashes whenever I jump out of a chrome browser window to go to another app for info, even if just for a minute or so. When I try to go back into the chrome browser window back from the other app, chrome crashes and shows the white screen with logo. Then it freezes for about 30 seconds and then shows the “chrome did not shut down correctly, do you want to restore?”. If that happened every so often, I would not complain, but not every time I want to go to another app and then go back. Terrible update! I am using an ipad running latest ios 11.3.1. Please fix immediately. I will have to use another browser app until you do. Very dissatisfied. Never had a problem before with chrome before this update.
Don’t like Re-design
by Bumblebee 4321 on 2018/09/14 18:30
There are a few things I really don’t like about the re-designed app. Biggest thing is that the navigation is now on the bottom of the page. That is not intuitive at all. I’ve been using chrome over Safari because for exactly that reason - page navigation is in the bottom. Now chrome behaves the same. If you want to switch that - do be it - but at least make it configurable (i looked around but didn’t see anything to move the navigation back up). The other thing I don’t like is the grid layout of other open tabs. I liked the previous version much better, as it’s also more consistent with the open apps behavior on many smart phones.
Chrome problems
by Snyder Ted on 2020/05/16 18:17
At first I thought my phone was the problem until I talked a few of my friends on Facebook. I don’t know which update or updates caused these problems. My screen can’t be used in different places at different times, when I open tabs it will freeze my phone and sometimes it won’t unfreeze even when I shut it down, if I’m even able at times. Sometimes I have to remove the battery. Another is when I go to a site and the screen goes completely black, usually followed by locking up. I search a site and it acts like it’s going to it then the tab closes and I have to start over. And before you ask, I checked and I’m not set to restricted. There’s even more and now a lot of folks are talking about it on Facebook and recommending other search engines. I liked google chrome prior to this
New tabs missing a critical feature
by Benyamin_111 on 2019/09/19 02:54
I blows my mind that we’re in 2019 and the google devs still haven’t implemented a feature that allows you to add your own custom links to websites on a new tab page. Google chrome randomly deletes and adds whatever it wants whenever it wants. I used to have the google website link on there, but suddenly it disappeared even though it’s my most visited website. It just does not make any sense what downside there will be in having custom links on a new tab page. Also, I was once forced to uninstall the app because there is no other way to close any tabs other than clicking on the tab number icon, and if there is an intrusive popup on screen, good luck closing out of it. Another feature that’s missing.
Horrible update
by 4946382936493 on 2018/09/07 12:52
I don't understand the need to "fix" things that don't need fixing. This update has changed the location of every option like opening a new tab, which aside from annoying is now harder to access. Closing tabs is also made harder to do for some reason, and the entire browser is slower and keeps crashing. It's changed to a completely non user friendly interface, and it's tempted me delete the app entirely because using it is just an extremely frustrating experience. It's currently more trouble than it's worth, which is especially frustrating because it was much easier to use before. At the very least there should be the option to change back to the old style, the way they've done with their new gmail design (which for the record is a terrible design too).

New Issue
by Hopelove&potatoes on 2020/08/14 11:27
Since I updated Chrome today it’s developed a weird glitch that’s really annoying me and I would like to have it fixed. For some strange reason, although I close tabs, a specific set continues to appear whenever I swipe-close and open the app even if I’ve deleted them. And I am also getting a NsCocoaErrorDomain 512 that prevents any picture or file downloads. I did hard reset and check my phone for connection issues and updates but there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong outside of Chrome. So to the Developers of Chrome, please kindly find a way to solve this issue. (And please make Chrome stable again)

More Unstable All the Time
by HappyPhysicist on 2020/08/13 07:49
First of all, iPad Chrome is better than Safari, a lot better. That said, a LOT could and should be done to make it more customizable, similar to the desktop version (hello, bigger fonts). The biggest problem is that they keep throwing out unstable new builds that end up requiring a lot more updates to get things right. In the last few hours alone, I’ve seen countless “aww, snap,” or whatever they call those sudden page crashes. On top of that, the entire app will sometimes just collapse and die on me. Some sites and behaviors are more risky than others, but the root cause is positively Chrome. I will prove it to you in a couple of weeks, after they’ve put out four or five more updates...... btw, stop blaming the pandemic for everything and just reinvent how you work to end these types of development issues. If you have developers who are unwilling or unable to work effectively from home, hire an unemployed disabled guy (me) who dreams of the opportunity!
Zooming in does not work
by VadMK on 2020/08/13 06:03

Saved passwords are not safe
by Mohxx on 2020/08/11 12:10
This is totally insane, chrome offers to save username and passwords of websites you visit. When you go to setting you can reveal passwords to “see the saved passwords”. So what if someone took my phone and go to setting and see ALL my saved passwords? This is so INSECURE.

Censored information
by fairies68 on 2020/08/10 14:17
I’ve always used chrome as my main browser but that has recently changed. Whenever I want real information, that’s not censored or controlled I use other browsers. They invade our privacy and control what we see, what’s the point of information you can’t trust?
Held back for iOS.
by SKF27 on 2020/08/10 02:21
Like the YouTube app, Chrome on iOS is competent but seems clearly held back for iOS. Other third party browsers offer Chromecast support but Chrome does not on iOS. There’s also no reader mode I’ve found, you cannot easily switch between accounts like on gmail, and why is the share button at the top in the url bar instead of at the bottom in the overflow menu? I use Chrome on my MacBook so I’m a fan (though it is a memory hog). I would like Chrome on iOS to meet the standards of other mobile browsers. My guess is the Chrome iOS team is certainly working hard but not being given the support they need.
“Close All” strikes again!
by Sweet Greggo on 2020/08/09 19:04
I love the app but man I wish they would move the “Close all” option to a menu or at the very least make a confirmation pop up before it closes EVERY page with no option to undo! Several times I’ve accidentally brushed that with my thumb and POOF! everything is just GONE. >:(
Chrome is all we need, thank you very much
by nammai25 on 2020/08/09 17:52
Chrome is one of the many apps I use on a day-to-day basis, so why bother if I choose a different browser every single day?! I like the way how the browser syncs all of my things, like bookmarks, history, and tabs on any device, so I can access them whenever I need to. Same goes for the data. While I like the many features in the mobile version of Google Chrome, I have found quite a few flaws. Among them are the lack of extension support (on PCs and Macs), a reduced set of preferences, limited ability to display the desktop version of some (but not all) websites, and the ability to make Chrome the default browser in iOS (as Apple does not allow it, instead making Safari the default browser system-wide; in macOS, this is no problem at all). But otherwise, this is a great app if you want to surf the Internet and rely on the power of Google on the go. (And in the process, saving lots of hassle!)
Zoom completely broken | Elements keep moving around
by ilikemyrealname on 2020/08/09 12:25
UPDATE: It’s been weeks now since my previous review. Chrome is still broken to the point of being unusable. I switched to Safari for a while but now I’ve moved on to Brave. As someone who owns a Chromebook, I’m really disappointed in the state of their browser. I’ll keep checking from time to time to see if these issues get resolved but until they do, I have to use different browsers for different devices because Chrome on IOS is broken. Biggest tech company can’t even keep their flagship browser in a usable state. PREVIOUS REVIEW: Chrome has a major glitch. Anytime I attempt to zoom into a website, Chrome completely errors out with “Aw snap” and the entire website is gone and must be reloaded. This has been happening for weeks now and happens every time I try to zoom in. New issue has started. The browser can’t sit still and keeps moving elements around. For instance, text I’m reading will jump up or down the page making it impossible to read. The only way to get around this is to keep one finger on the screen and keep slightly moving up and down. But not 2 fingers because that can count as a zoom and, as I mentioned above, will break the browser completely with the “Am Snap” issue. Between these 2 glitches, Chrome has become unusable at this time. Chrome is broken as of writing this review. I’ve gone back to Safari and will continually check up on Chrome until the devs finally work through these bugs. (Also I have copied my review as Apple’s App Store has started a habit of removing my reviews. If they continue with this behavior I will simply re-add my review each time.)

Chrome crashed and lost all tabs
by Kriss Alpha on 2020/08/08 02:22
But the worst part is that it gave me a button to restore all tabs so I went to close all of my open apps except Chrome to clear up my RAM, I was about to press the restore button and then it went away, on its own, without me pressing anything, because it was on a timer. Why is that a thing!? What kind of pea brained person designed that!? And I know it wasn’t like that before because it used to show up on the bottom with an x button to close it. AND WHY IN GODS NAME IS THERE NO OPTION TO REOPEN ALL CLOSED TABS ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE APP!? Oh and I tried to open the tabs on my computer but it already managed to delete all of the tabs from my cloud sync without a second thought because of course it would.

Make it easier to reload
by PorgArmy on 2020/08/07 00:44
Way too often my app crashes or “doesn’t shut down correctly” and all the tabs I was saving are usually just lost. The reload tabs button works but it’s annoying to use because more often than not, the thing disappears before I even get to tap or realize it. Then boom, all of my important information is just gone. This app should be updated so the button stays on screen longer or is accessible semi-permanently from a spot on the tool/settings bar This is my only problem and I would greatly appreciate it being fixed, thank you.

Everytime I restart the app or just open it again, google chrome just deletes and opens a new brand new tab where I can search up things.

Keeps rolling back
by Kouhaikun on 2020/08/02 22:29
Whenever I leave chrome in the background or close it, I discover that it rolls back all progress I’ve made in regards to browsing webpages and tabs opened when I reopen it. I’ll be reading an article and go onto the next one and when I come back to chrome, it’ll be on the previous article. But that’s not all. It rolls back to pages/tabs I was last browsing days ago! Please fix this. This is really annoying as someone who does a lot of reading.
Please make the app full screen

Beta
by trkyme on 2020/08/02 13:23
My iPhone 11 ProMax gets noticeably warm merely browsing the web in Chrome. Too much freezing or lagging. I haven’t noticed this much before or as bad in prior releases so I’m going back Safari until Chrome starts performing less like a half baked beta product.
Unable to use..but alright
by Colaosis on 2020/08/02 08:01
I had no problem with Chrome for about a month, and then everytime I tried to do something, it restarted, or glitched out, and always resets the page. Sometimes it works fine, but mostly it doesn’t.

Constant crashing
by Rockport, Maine on 2020/08/01 17:37
Second Update 8/1/20: After reading reviews about so many other people having these exact same problems for months now, I decided to try Microsoft Edge. After about an hour of browsing, not one website page crashed. I may end up deleting Google Chrome if the Microsoft app continues to impress me. It’s a shame because I have used Google and Google Chrome for many years and was happy until these multiple problems started and continued getting worse. It shows me that Google does not care and now neither do I. Update 8/1/20: I downgraded my ratings to 1 star from 2 stars because of the continued problems and new problems us users are encountering. Websites are still constantly crashing, which is not why we use a web browser. Now tabs and websites disappear after closing Chrome, so either you go to history to find them or do not get to read what was saved in the tabs. I honestly expect more from a mega giant corporation like Google but it appears they are more interested in selling our private information than giving users a pleasant experience using their browser. This company has unlimited resources and the best talent available and can not give us a user friendly web browser? Something is seriously wrong and it is becoming apparent that Google inaction to fix known issues shows Google does not care. That is a shame and users deserve better. I used to love Google but lately it crashes constantly making it impossible to read and educate myself on the coronavirus newsfront. Numerous websites crash. I have written feedback asking for this to be repaired but so far 5hey have done nothing constructive to stop this problem. I am positive that if I am having this problem that numerous others do too. How about it Google? Want to make our experiences better and make this the pleasant app it used to be?
Font size
by STLSTI on 2020/08/01 17:31
I don’t know what you all did in the last update but the font size is way too small! I have to go in on each window and manually increase the font size because you all can’t leave anything alone. Fix this issue or I’ll move to another browser...

by ShadowNinja5 on 2020/08/01 02:04
So, first off, it closes all 99 tabs I had open, and because you guys can’t search history based on device, I couldn’t find any of them again. Then you get stuck on the same three tabs opening every time I close and reopen the app, even after I closed them all and opened new tabs. Then when I delete the app and reinstall it, it isn’t synced up with my google account at all, unable to access the history or the bookmarks of my account. What is wrong with you guys?

News on front page 👎
by Nickickk on 2020/07/29 14:22
The news links displayed on an empty tap is really sad. The majority of articles are clickbait and random cat videos. I have a cat myself and I am not amused... at all. Please show us some real news, not a 30 second clip of a cat watching someone eat a sandwich (literally) and title the news article “Physco Cat”. The article only had 1 sentence followed by the video. Very sad. It was literally just a video of a cat just sitting there with it’s eyes open. I should sue for the all the brain cells I lost watching that. Who job is it to pick articles and have them on chrome, a 6 year old? Sad!

After the latest update my tabs constantly crash with an oh snap screen even while not loading anything. I’m now constantly losing all my tabs. Update: It’s a few days after writing my initial review; I am now unable to load pages without the app crashing. This is unacceptable for a multi billion dollar company to be providing.

sorry to the devs!
by iq2 on 2020/07/26 00:25
i’m so sorry for google devs now because google is increasingly a flaming pile of poop. it’s creators left and it’s run by flashy modern bean counters now, and boy does it show. search: ignores terms, operation symbols, and pretty much everything. instead, it does whatever it wants, with lots of ads as well. photos: barely works on the web (for ipad pro), and somehow the app is worse. easily half the features are broken, it crashes, it won’t go back to a photo, the photo goes black, and etc. music? lol. who the hell knows anymore. of course, messaging/chat/blah blah remains the mess it’s always been. oh, and if you peek behind the curtain, your contacts are like spaghetti code personified. i am moving off google, except for gmail (to sign up for stuff, mostly). it’s a slow process because i used google heavily for many years—all their social stuff, keep, music, youtube (oh, and that blows too now, but not totally...yet), photos, mail, drive, and so on. and they kill stuff off endlessly. popular or not, google doesn’t give a fig. they won’t pay to have apps vetted properly in the play store, thus malware comes in waves, unendingly. i used to love chrome books, chrome browser, androids. not anymore. gonna be all apple, slowly slowly. apple remains user friendly. they improve things, they add useful features while staying true to simplicity. they *actually help* if there is a problem. i can’t even send feedback to google lately. it just crashes. sad.
Garbage. Absolutely awful.
by Kimjatheninja on 2020/07/25 23:28
The chrome app for iOS is absolute trash. It crashes consistently and wipes out all of my tabs so frequently that I’ve given up on it as my default browser. It’s even more disappointing because I have a Windows computer and it would be GREAT to be able to use across my phone and laptop...if it worked as it should. I get an “aw, snap” crash message and/or all of my tabs crashing daily. I’ve taken the time to clear my cache and cookies, and it’s still trash. One star because I have to give it at least one.

Chrome is all we need, thank you very much
by nammai25 on 2020/08/09 17:52
Chrome is one of the many apps I use on a day-to-day basis, so why bother if I choose a different browser every single day?! I like the way how the browser syncs all of my things, like bookmarks, history, and tabs on any device, so I can access them whenever I need to. Same goes for the data. While I like the many features in the mobile version of Google Chrome, I have found quite a few flaws. Among them are the lack of extension support (on PCs and Macs), a reduced set of preferences, limited ability to display the desktop version of some (but not all) websites, and the ability to make Chrome the default browser in iOS (as Apple does not allow it, instead making Safari the default browser system-wide; in macOS, this is no problem at all). But otherwise, this is a great app if you want to surf the Internet and rely on the power of Google on the go. (And in the process, saving lots of hassle!)
One Thing unappealing to my eyes
by Wise Twig on 2019/10/16 05:16
I think Chrome is a great app and, I have been using it for a few years. I didn’t think that you had to update it, so I missed it for a whole year. When I decided to update it, I first looked at the reviews. People had been saying that it had been jumbled up, but I didn’t see that. Another person said that it was harder to delete a tab (although, it wasn’t), so I tried deleting a tab. Usually it took away the tab slowly if it was my only one, and it would make me tap a plus sign to get another one. This time, It took it away very fast, and it hurt my eyes. Once it was there, and then you press an ‘x’ and it was gone. IT REALLY HURTS MY EYES! I wish I hadn’t even updated it. It may not seem serious, but it is to me!
Love Chrome but the new update is making things a hassle
by d bozo on 2020/03/24 20:23
Chrome is great for everything and works across all my devices so it’s nice but the app recently changed one of their buttons and is making it a hassle to use. The center button at the bottom of the screen used to pull up the search bar a the keyboard which made it easy instead of having to reach to the top of the screen to tap the omnibar to start searching. It is now a new tab button that is really frustrating as I instinctively tap that button when I pull up a new tab. So now I have to close the second new tab and then tap the omnibar at the top of my iPhone which has a pretty lengthy screen. A bit of a regression in terms of user friendliness so I’m writing this in hopes of them changing the button back or at least giving us the option to choose what the button does.
Never had any problems with it
by Jaden Dakota on 2017/09/15 22:32
I use it on my desktop, laptop, my phone, and pretty much every device I can put it on. I've been using chrome every since I was just a kid - and there's definitely not a better web application than this. it has more features than any other regular web browser that I have seen. furthermore, I absolutely have no idea why it has a 3 star rating on this app store. it should definitely have more considering the work and dedication Google has put Into this app. the interface is very smooth and comfortable to me and every single webpage loads flawlessly. if you are reading this I would definitely recommend chrome to you, no matter what anybody says. keep up the good work Google!
Unreliable and snooping
by Pfewy on 2020/03/06 20:14
Completely unreliable on iOS because if you forget an load a pdf webpage —-OOPS! You’ve just crashed Chrome and you’ll need to reload your pages. Sometimes they reload, sometimes they don’t. And Google INC will always have better data available to them than you will as to what your open pages were. Google’s Chrome is just another way for the company to track everything you do online and sell that data for advertising. Web pages frequently load slowly but in return for that you get the luxury of having adverts shoved in your face! BUY THINGS! NOW! Sometimes these ads will crash Chrome as well. Maybe it’s more secure than other browsers but it’s not secure from their data vacuuming. Back in the day, Chrome was really the only alternative to IE, but now there are lots of quite frankly better choices. I like DDG a lot. But if you like a lack of privacy and constant tracking and instability the this is your browser!
Just a blank screen and a sweet search bar,
by Crushed in Connecticut on 2017/11/20 08:21
Baby, that’s all we need. I have always liked googles minimalist approach and that’s why I use it over aol. Because I’m easily distracted. And now my phone, the brick of metal and glass that I use to obtain all my knowledge, is tainted. When I open my phone to search on chrome “who sings that song about a plastic cup?”, I have to get past all of my other notifications and try not to get sidetracked. And now, by adding news stories to the new tab tab, you have ruined everything. I can’t simply search for something. I’m now inundated with more “news” that I don’t care about interfering with my quest for knowledge. I’ve looked for a toggle to turn if off to no avail. I’ve used chrome for awhile but this is too much. I’m also upset you got rid of the 3D Touch, copy/paste option. That was the only time I ever used 3D Touch was to open articles (I found elsewhere) and read them. Please address these issues. Sour in Saskatoon
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.
New version an unusable Safari clone
by chitownriverscum on 2019/02/06 22:15
Okay, I’ve searched for something, and it was nice to be able to go back to the search results, and have them all still there so I could try multiple options for finding what I wanted. But that doesn’t mean it’s the only thing I EVER will want to search for. I try changing my search terms to refine my results, and Chrome snaps it back to the last thing I searched for, maybe... thinking that I had made a mistake when I changed it? I don’t get it. Also, before, you’d get the “sponsored” or “recommended“ results first, and you’d understand that you had to scroll past those ones to find what you needed. Now... there’s nothing past those ones! Maybe I’m going off the deep end, maybe there are some bugs with the new version that have yet to be ironed out ... but boy, is it sure annoying in the meantime! Like someone else said, if I wanted to use Safari, I would. Don’t be like Safari.
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.
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
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.
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!
From great to terrible

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.
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!!!!!
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 .
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
“Add to Reading list” feature useful but limited
by Sujatha92 on 2019/02/24 15:11
Ability to tag websites to read later is helpful & I use it all the time. However google developers would’ve been smart to take this feature a few steps further — 1. to be able to create folders within the “read later” option 2. Enable users to create bookmark these sites directly from “read later” list. As it is, if I want to add a permanent bookmark to a site I’ve marked as “read later” I have to open the site and create bookmark from that point. It should be doable just from the “read later” list. Chrome is still the fastest and most user friendly web search engine out there.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Great app obviously but one annoying glitch
by Sambehm12 on 2018/01/19 14:59
Google chrome is obviously a great app, and you don’t need me to tell you that. However, there as been one glitch lately that has been very annoying and the reason I am writing this review. About 75% of the time that I try to quickly google something, as I’m typing into the search bar, my keyboard disappears making me accidentally click on the suggested news on the homepage. This gets very annoying when I am attempting to quickly google something, and I do believe the problem is in the app as my phone doesn’t do this on any other app. Please help me with this so I can love Google Chrome again.
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.
Best thing ever
by qwedfhftgf on 2020/04/06 22:37
I have been using chrome for a while it is an amazing app read some of the views but it is a great app but I do have some ideas to make it better you don’t have to take these but make it where you can make an article because some people have things to say I think they should have a voice and try as hard as you can to add games because my kids love to play games on my phone but they go on chrome thinking it’s a game but then when they see it they get disappointed because they wanted to play a game but they have not explored I have not even explored but it is a great app
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.
Death to bing (a comedy monologue by billy)
by Zom bæ bæ0172 on 2018/01/10 22:25
I mean just applause to google for completely slaughtering bing, like what’s bing? I do not know. Like the only other browser that people still kinda know exists is safari and that’s because it comes with iPhones even though no one wants it, like that bs U2 album. Honestly who even likes U2 anymore, I’m being honest when I say that I’ve never heard one of their songs. If you have, applause to you for having such a long attention span, because that stuff is BOORRINNG. It’s very sad though that we’ve lost bing, I think I will set up a funeral for them, be right back —————————————————————————————— BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR MY NEXT SCETCH, THE FUNERAL OF BING!!!!!!!
Bookmarks are gone, not user friendly
by chelleperu on 2018/03/16 05:10
I really wanted to like this app since I use chrome on my MacBook and google drive is very important for my school work. Unfortunately, chrome for iPhone is not very user friendly which is surprising coming from google. Bookmarks should be the first thing you should see when you open a new page, not articles or ads you think we want to see. (We are humans, our interests always change, we look up random things we aren’t interested in.... stop trying to show us what YOU think we should look at). It’s also hard to sort through different pages you have open since they all basically pile on top of each other instead of being more spread it to see what was on that page. Guess I’m switching back to safari.
Love it
by jamiewamiewhatever on 2020/01/10 21:03
I love using chrome on my phone and that I can send a link from one of my devices to another without saving it as a bookmark and finding it(like as if I was playing that game called Where is Waldo?) but I would like it what my suggest is about so it can be easier for me to swap profiles between my home account and school account. The suggestion that I think is going to be beneficial to everyone: create an update where people on mobile that have chrome installed and has different gmail accounts and that people can just click swap profile just like on the computer, and that the data would be in separate areas but won’t be affected with combining them together and just call it a night.
Latest version is awful
by kaptkirk12 on 2018/06/09 20:35
The latest version (june 2018) is the worst ever. It crashes whenever I jump out of a chrome browser window to go to another app for info, even if just for a minute or so. When I try to go back into the chrome browser window back from the other app, chrome crashes and shows the white screen with logo. Then it freezes for about 30 seconds and then shows the “chrome did not shut down correctly, do you want to restore?”. If that happened every so often, I would not complain, but not every time I want to go to another app and then go back. Terrible update! I am using an ipad running latest ios 11.3.1. Please fix immediately. I will have to use another browser app until you do. Very dissatisfied. Never had a problem before with chrome before this update.
Don’t like Re-design
by Bumblebee 4321 on 2018/09/14 18:30
There are a few things I really don’t like about the re-designed app. Biggest thing is that the navigation is now on the bottom of the page. That is not intuitive at all. I’ve been using chrome over Safari because for exactly that reason - page navigation is in the bottom. Now chrome behaves the same. If you want to switch that - do be it - but at least make it configurable (i looked around but didn’t see anything to move the navigation back up). The other thing I don’t like is the grid layout of other open tabs. I liked the previous version much better, as it’s also more consistent with the open apps behavior on many smart phones.
Chrome problems
by Snyder Ted on 2020/05/16 18:17
At first I thought my phone was the problem until I talked a few of my friends on Facebook. I don’t know which update or updates caused these problems. My screen can’t be used in different places at different times, when I open tabs it will freeze my phone and sometimes it won’t unfreeze even when I shut it down, if I’m even able at times. Sometimes I have to remove the battery. Another is when I go to a site and the screen goes completely black, usually followed by locking up. I search a site and it acts like it’s going to it then the tab closes and I have to start over. And before you ask, I checked and I’m not set to restricted. There’s even more and now a lot of folks are talking about it on Facebook and recommending other search engines. I liked google chrome prior to this
New tabs missing a critical feature
by Benyamin_111 on 2019/09/19 02:54
I blows my mind that we’re in 2019 and the google devs still haven’t implemented a feature that allows you to add your own custom links to websites on a new tab page. Google chrome randomly deletes and adds whatever it wants whenever it wants. I used to have the google website link on there, but suddenly it disappeared even though it’s my most visited website. It just does not make any sense what downside there will be in having custom links on a new tab page. Also, I was once forced to uninstall the app because there is no other way to close any tabs other than clicking on the tab number icon, and if there is an intrusive popup on screen, good luck closing out of it. Another feature that’s missing.
Horrible update
by 4946382936493 on 2018/09/07 12:52
I don't understand the need to "fix" things that don't need fixing. This update has changed the location of every option like opening a new tab, which aside from annoying is now harder to access. Closing tabs is also made harder to do for some reason, and the entire browser is slower and keeps crashing. It's changed to a completely non user friendly interface, and it's tempted me delete the app entirely because using it is just an extremely frustrating experience. It's currently more trouble than it's worth, which is especially frustrating because it was much easier to use before. At the very least there should be the option to change back to the old style, the way they've done with their new gmail design (which for the record is a terrible design too).
