Google Chrome will offer Android users a 64-bit version with better performance
The transition between Google’s apps and Android in 64-bit architecture is relatively slow. For example, Apple completed the 64-bit transition a few years ago, and Google will not require developers to provide a 64-bit version until August 2021. For Apple devices, downloading and installing the 32-bit version is not supported on 64-bit devices. The benefit of the 64-bit version is that performance is relatively better. After all, mainstream devices and new models have already adopted ARM64 microprocessors.
Google is fast in other areas, but it’s a bit unsatisfactory when it comes to transitioning from Android to 64-bit. For example, Google apps such as Google Chrome are always 32-bit versions. But this is also related to the Android ecosystem. After all, Apple needs to support relatively few models and Android supports many models.
The good news is that Google has started to provide the 64-bit version of Google Chrome to Android 10 and above. I don’t know if this is the beginning of the transformation of the Google family bucket to the 64-bit version. A report from Androidpolice says that the current 64-bit version of Google Chrome only supports Android 10 and above, if it is lower than this version, it is still a 32-bit version. Of course, with the subsequent changes, the supported version will gradually expand, and most users should be able to use the 64-bit version.
In terms of performance, Google has not yet released instructions, so it is not clear whether the 64-bit version of Google Chrome is much better in performance than the 32-bit version. It is estimated that Google should release test data after the test is completed.
