Chrome for Android updated, gets full-screen view

Google has just pushed the Chrome for Android v27 in Google Play. The update isn’t a huge one, but still brings a few nifty features to the browser. Some of these features have been available in Chrome Beta for many days, but the stable version is getting them just now.Chrome Logo

One of these new features is the full-screen view, which allows you to browse the web on your full smartphone display, particularly useful for phones with not-so-massive screens.
