Users can tap the indicator to see more information and to access an option to load the original version of the page, which would be the full version. Moreover, it introduces support for progressive Web apps (PWAs), now live on all desktop platforms as well as mobile. Among the biggest new features of this release, we can mention support for Dark Mode on macOS. If not, you can also go to Chrome - About Google Chrome and trigger the update manually.
