Google Updates Chrome and YouTube with Some Notable Improvements

Google has recently updated two of its most popular iOS apps – Chrome and YouTube – with some great new features.

Easier Chromecasting

First up, YouTube now plays even nice with Google’s Chromecast streaming media device. Starting with version 12.03 of the app, users can now control videos from their lockscreen when casting to a Chromecast or any other smart living room devices with a YouTube app.

Along with the lockscreen, the control buttons are now available in the Control Center.

You’ll also be able to access controls on any paired Apple Watch.

YouTube is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store from free.

Chrome adds a QR scanner

The updated Chrome app now features a QR code. That’s a handy addition as users usually need an add-on app to scan those codes on their iOS device. The scanner is available on any 3D-Touch enabled iPhone by simply selecting the Chrome icon. All users can also access it by searching for “QR” in Spotlight.

Any iPad users can take advantage of the redesigned tab switcher that makes it easier to access sites.

Chrome can be downloaded now on the App Store. It’s also designed for both the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPads.
