  • Since the newest update, it pops up randomly when I'm doing something else on my phone, it's been doing this a lot when I'm watching YouTube. The website that pops up is always an unrelated ad, so far sports and gaming. It stops my video randomly, kicks me out of YouTube and straight to the random website. I'm worried that these websites could have viruses to do all this. I don't know if I'm the only one experiencing this, but please fix this, it's really annoying.

  • What the hell has happened to Chrome? If the problems I'm experiencing were limited to one device I'd assume there was a local problem. Chrome, since the latest updates, has been almost impossible to use on multiple devices on Android and also on a Windows 10 laptop. Google needs competition-come on Huawei, get your act together. Chrome is now freezing on startup. Every time I use it. Switching to Opera which doesn't have any problems whatsoever.

  • I think that Google \u0026 chrome are too invasive. I like my privacy \u0026 freedom. I don't want my location known at all times. I don't wish to evaluate everything that I do. I hate the fact that my phone tells me that it won't work right if I don't allow Google to have access to my contacts, microphone, location, or camera \u0026 other private things at all times. I don't need them to make or receive calls on my behalf. Nor do I wish for them to manage my text messages or pictures. I just don't like this

  • I have a Samsung Note 8. Chrome was my go to browser until the last system update on July 20, 2019. Now with the Chrome app updates, the app constantly freezes! It's is really getting tiresome. IT DOES NOT WORK!!! I've tried all the options your automatic bot response suggested like "Clearing app cache", IT DOESN'T WORK! I've stopped using the app and now moved over to Mozilla Firefox because they actually DO take their feedback seriously instead of these useless automatic bot responses.

  • Needs proper home page customization. "News" straight up useless for many people, yet there's still no proper option to disable them. I don't need auto recent cites pinned on my home page, I need my own, just like in desktop version. Many settings don't synchronise (such as autoplay preference in site settings), so after reinstall you need to set it up again. Needs auto closing tabs on exiting/closing Chrome. Crashes on Android Q DP5 (74, 75, 76).

  • "Thanks for choosing Chrome!" did we really have choice? Chrome is preinstalled on every android device. Yeah, I know we can just download another browser but the fact is, if you don't use Chrome, it's taking up valuable space. I honestly hope that preinstalled bloatware goes away at some point.

  • Cannot understand why it's has settings to block adverts and pop ups. It blocks nothing. Chrome is just a news feed with spammy links and a browser function. It should be made possible to remove this bloatware without having to root and void the warranty of a mobile phone that you have spent good money on.

  • Up until about a week ago, I've never had a problem with Chrome, but now it downloads things extremely slowly. I know the problem is with it, because downloading from other apps still works just fine, amd with the usual speed. I'd really appreciate it if you fix this

  • I lobe the way Chrome is so fast and delivers such quality results providing you utilize the proper search tearms and key words. I have nothing bad to say about chrome. I love the fact that I actually took the time to learn how to properly configure settings and Chrome Cast Is the best!!!

  • Could you please change it back to the previous UI? The new one is extremely annoying because the bottom menu just stays and wont dissapear so it's taking up too much space on the screen. I prefer the previous UI because it is much easier to use compared to the new one.

  • Since I upgraded my Chrome to the latest version on 30th July 2019, my Samsung S7 Edge Android OS version 8.0 with Samsung Experience version 9.0, the Chrome browser have been hanging and crashing every time I start it. All instructions to reset Chrome, clear cache, cookies, etc did not work. I reset my Chrome to the stock factory version and the problem is resolved but it gets upgraded again every night due to the Android OS system software updates through Play Store. How can I send the system report for you to diagnose and fix this issue since I cannot start Chrome after it is upgraded, without it crashing? I am sure, I am not the ony one facing this issue.

  • latest update reinstated the duet tool bar which eats up the screen at the bottom and can't be turned off in flags. completely ridiculous and intrusive to change the UI in a way that has no option to shut off and is essentially eating up the screen. at least give us the ability to toggle it on and off and maybe announce changes with a walkthrough?

  • Since two updates ago, the app sometimes interpret "scrolling up" as "refresh page" even if I'm not at the top of the page. This is SUPER annoying, and it consumes unnecessary data (costing money for some!) and if I'm looking at a long page, it loses where I was in the page. Is there a way to get rid of this behavior somehow? Or is it just a feature that will be here and will stay?

  • I've just download ed \u0026 still it opens to tell me to download. Privacy? What's that? I try turning off as much as they allow, and I believe my phones problems are retaliation. No not paranoid, just better informed than ever. But looking at reviews, it's no secret. Not that it bothers them. They are in the business of gathering our info and making millions- what am I thinking? Billions. Putting out this is gotta mean it's more effective toward that end. Greed. What a destructive motive. If I was a conspiracy theorist, I'd predict it willl be the undoing of us all. Even them.

  • I do not like the new UI at all. The white makes everything blend together. The rounding of everything makes me feel like I'm using babies first browser. I wish there was a dark theme. Until these things are addressed I will be using Mozilla Firefox instead and my rating will remain a 1 star. Edit:This newest update is even worse. What idiot thought it would be a good idea to move everything to the bottom of the screen and not have it hide itself?Once again Google has told me that Firefox better

  • I absolutely despise the new layout of this update! I would give 0 stars if I could. The 'improved' menu takes up way to much screen space compared to before, as the previous version would automatically hide the menu when you scroll up. But this new version has it on the bottom and just refuses to disappear. Moreover, I highly doubt Google would care about these sort of things. So I guess I'm just going have to pirate an older version of Chrome.

  • Chrome was great once but now it lags behind the browsers that are based on Chrome. The main issue with this browser is the fact that there is no way to disable the ads and the advertisements keep on coming, pushed by the almighty Google itself. It takes way too long to customize to one's liking, basically, Samsung browser, Mozilla and even the stupid Edge, made by a universally-hated company, are now all superior to what was once the benchmark of an internet browser perfection. Sorry.

  • Hands down best browser, fast and secure. They finally added a dark theme! But on the downside, when trying to scroll back towards the top of any given page, there's about a 10% chance that it thinks it's at the top already and is doing the "pull down to refresh" thing. Ad blocking would be nice, but if I hit any ad-heavy pages I load it up in Firefox.

  • Google seems to be accelerating their application of poor decisions on UI development, and just continually making change for the sake of change. This probably comes down to bad management practices rather than the developers. After changing several more flags to keep it sensible, and still losing even more flexibility, I had to question why I'm persisting with Chrome at all. Thankfully the competition has advanced a lot across all platforms, so options aren't limited. Google, do better.

  • Not a fan of the new 'duet' style menu move to the bottom of the screen not being optional. It takes up considerably more space on small devices and from a usability perspective there's more 'thumb' travel to perform the same tasks as per the top menu. You can (temporarily) disable it using flags, but a menu option is the minimum I would expect for a new change like this. From an application perspective, Chrome seems to have lost its way from the simplicity it started with.

  • It's ok until the annoying floating Bing magnifying glass icon appears on the home screen. The icon serves no purpose, it is not a search engine as it has no links and it gets in the way especially when you are reading. You can't disable it and it appears on every home page. Only way to get rid of it is to force stop the app. I hate Bing in general but this is hate on another level!

  • They listen through my mic. You can try it too, even on desktop. Go to a website, any website that has ads, without adblocker. After seeing the ads, start talking casually about something, like cat food, repeat the words cat food while you talk a couple more times, next time you refresh the website, you'll get cat food ads. Try it with whatever you want.

  • I have done gotten suspicious to the point of where I am starting to think Chrome is a Surveillance Company. I mean just look at that app logo, it clearly looks like camera. I think Chrome is watching over your private information without you knowing/without your permission. I mean, don't get me wrong, this app does what I want it to, but I am switching to Firefox, sorry Google Chrome.

  • HATE the latest update. No longer able to control ring volume with the volume keys. Most used apps include those that are already on the home screen. Why? So annoying! If that's what I want, I select it from the home screen. No reason to duplicate on the top of the app list. User should be able to choose what apps are at the top of the list. Can't stop update notifications in the play store app. Can't stop emoji suggestions in text. Sucks!

  • previous updates for the app have been good so far i could browse the internet without any break of sweat, but unfortunately, the latest update has created a new problem for me, probably has for the others, the problem is that whenever I'm in the middle of doing something, it just suddenly crashes, my device which is S8 doesn't seem to have any problems. this has never happened before.. the app is likely to have the issue. hope it gets fixed soon.

  • I would say that Chrome is the best browser that I've used, but ever since a few days ago, I can't download any images, videos, or any files. I've looked online for methods, but they only made the problem more troublesome.

  • I use chrome all the time, and I really preferred the previous layout. I hate that everything is now down at the bottom. What was wrong with the previous layout? This layout takes up too much space, and it's just not comfortable. The three dots at the top took up no space, and it was far more efficient and comfortable to navigate. It just really makes using this app unlikable now. Several days later and it's still just as annoying. I would happily change my rating if the layout were changed back

  • The new update ruined it for me. I would kinda more ok if it was better to use, and if the menu and search bars disappeared as you scroll down. Whould give a higher rating buy the update ruined it for me. I would put more, but some other reviews with about the same rating already speak for me. I am overall pretty dissatisfied with the new update. I feel there was no need to change something that was perfectly fine already. I feel that instead of it being an upgrade its a downgrade.

  • If you like having the worst possible violations of your privacy, go ahead and use this browser. Otherwise avoid it like the plague. It's bad enough Gooogle controls the Android software. But they also want the lucrative business of being everyone's web browser. You can't even uninstall it on Android. Use non-profit software like Firefox when you can, and disable this POS. Google has enough control over our lives already. They're a corporation that makes money the more they know about you.

  • TAB BUTTON NOT WORKING. Since the new update, im having a problem with the tab button. Usually i have around 10 to 12 tabs opened. But once i close this app and open it again, only 1 tab remains. And if you press on the "number 1" tab to open a new tab, it doesn't respond.

  • Why would you want to change the interface by moving the options to a HUGE bar at the BOTTOM of the screen, instead of the three dots on top? And then add another bar ON TOP of that that shows ads that you can't close? It's absolutely horrible. I can barely see what I searched, because your stupid app takes up half the screen. CHANGE IT BACK!!! I absolutely hate it.

  • Yeah I'm not liking the new layout. The old one was just fine. This may be a first world problem, but having my eyes adjust to the location is kinda be. Sorry to say it but the new update looks like a bad version of apple phone's safari. It was very neat and tidy in the previous layout and now its just a mess. You know it was much nicer having everything accessible from the top. Now I have to adjust for the new in your face update. hope you change it back or make a better version.

  • So disappointed with the new design. Why move features that were easy to use and fast to find? The bottom of the page isn't where my fingers most easily reach when I'm holding a phone. I loved the Chrome layout prior to the change. First you mess up the desktop version and make it look all bulky by getting rid of the slanted tabs and now you've messed up the mobile version. Google, why do you hate your users so much?

  • Chrome is by far my favourite browser, thank you guys for your hard work. I'm frustrated at the latest update though. Moving the tabs button and the address bar to the bottom of the screen is very confusing and taxing and not as functional as having it at the top for. I understand that you probably wanna make the buttons and the bar more accessible to people with smaller hands. However, to me i keep moving my thump up then down then have to find the button. So annoying please change it back :(

  • stop swapping the menu bar (it was better when it was at the bottom of the page for big phones). also the new feature 'tap link to share' doesn't work well. for example i want to share an article from a website, it sends only the link to the website (not the whole link of the article). later edit: make the share button work! it doesn't share the right link. i still have to copy-paste if i want to share something.

  • On Pixel 2: Sites now hang and won't load (Reddit and UPS tracking). I can't use the drop down menus (those 3 lines in the corner of thousands of website), full page disruptive ads that I can't dismiss on IGN, I can't submit form data or logins on multiple websites. Restarted my phone, shut down turned back on, cleared all data listed on the privacy tab (cache, etc), repeat. Also problems using Google search tools now. Basically Chrome is 100% broken for me.

  • I liked the old layout better because when you scrolled down, the search bar got hidden automatically. Now you also have the navigational bar at the bottom which won't ever go away. I can hide my phone's Dock to make the Web page I'm viewing a little bigger, but I'd prefer not to. Now I feel like I'm back on my old phone from 2010; the Web pages are too small. I'm switching to Opera.

  • Horrible update, get rid of the icons along the bottom, I don't want half of my screen to be taken up with UI. Trying to decide between Opera, Firefox and Edge... Update: marginally happier now that I've found (in "chrome://flags") that I can disable "Duet" completely (2 settings need to change to "disabled" if anybody's looking to fix it themselves) - this shouldn't be enforced, there should be an easier way to get rid of it...
