Google is currently in the process of distributing a much-anticipated visual overhaul for its official Chrome for Android client via the Play Store. In terms of added functionality, the upgrade brings a multitude of bug fixes, stability improvements, speed optimizations and a Material design makeover, which we first caught sight of on the Chrome Beta last month.

As if that wasn’t enough, the search engine giant has also baked a very useful ‘Auto-sign in’ feature into Chrome 37, which will automatically sign users into all Google related apps and services, such as Maps, Search, YouTube, Drive and Books, if they are already signed into Chrome. Now that’s pretty cool.

The official changelog for the update can be seen below:

  • Signing in to Chrome signs you in to your favorite Google sites.
  • Updated look and feel with elements of Material Design.
  • Lots of bug fixes and performance improvements!
