Google says that the new version of Chrome for Android is 36.0.1985.122. The update includes the following tweaks:

  • Improved text rendering on non-mobile optimized sites.
  • Doodles return to the new tab page.
  • Lots of bug fixes and performance improvements!

As usual, this update will roll out to users over the coming days. If you’ve got Google’s Chrome browser installed on your Android devices, be sure to keep an eye out for this new version.
