It’s only been two weeks since Google announced the Chrome Beta channel for its Android browser and the application already received several updates that fix a bunch of bugs.

Today, Google released the new Chrome Beta 25.0.1364.47, which is now available for download on the company’s app store. The update contains a very long list of changes, which is available here.

However, there is still a lot to work until a final version is uploaded onto Google Play Store. For the time being, developers confirmed the following issues have yet to be addressed:

- 169616 - Keyboard pops up after Chrome is closed;
- Issues with Gmail and Google image search on Galaxy Note II;
- 170653 - Scroll position is reset momentarily when double-tapping in footer/gutter on some pages;
- Sometimes flickering and graphical glitches are observed while opening new tab;
- Frequent freeze on devices with specific versions of Qualcomm GPU driver;
- Text autosizing may break formatting on some sites;
- Video continues playing after exiting fullscreen on android phones;
- Getting crash on tabswitcher mode [HTC Droid DNA];
- 163439 - yahoo.com page links are not working;
- 166233 - Cannot submit comments on facebook posts or pictures;
- 158633: Tap disambiguation overaggressive.

For those who wish to try out the beta version of Chrome for Android, keep in mind that you can install Chrome Beta alongside the stable version, which is also available for download via Google Play Store.

According to Google, Chrome Beta will request additional permissions when using Chrome Sync for the first time, so keep that in mind.

The new Chrome Beta 25.0.1364.47 is now available as a free download via Google Play Store and it should be fully compatible with all devices running Android 4.0 and up. Check it out here.
