Google Chrome remains the most popular web browser despite competition from other browsers. Its user-friendly interface and versatility make it compatible with popular operating systems.
Google releases constant updates to improve the performance of Chrome on Linux. While you can easily run browser extension updates, you will have to manually update the Chrome desktop app. Here is how to update Google Chrome in Ubuntu.
Update Google Chrome in Ubuntu via terminal
If you installed Google Chrome on Ubuntu, Google will let you know when an update is due. You will see a warning in your browser profile.
Run the following command to update the configured packages and dependencies. It will update the packages to the latest versions from Ubuntu and third party repositories:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y
Then update Google Chrome with the following command:
sudo apt install google-chrome-stable
After the update, you will see updates on the terminal as shown below:
If you installed an unstable version of Google Chrome using the DEB package, update it using:
sudo apt install google-chrome-unstable
To update the beta version of Google Chrome, enter the following command:
sudo apt install google-chrome-beta
Update Google Chrome via Ubuntu Software Updater
Your Ubuntu system has a built-in software update application. All devices connected to official repositories regularly check for app updates. Whenever there is a new update, the software updater will notify you. You can also change it to schedule updates as you see fit.
To update all software on your system, including the Google Chrome app, find “Software Update” in the application menu and run it.
Software Updater often notifies you of any pending updates, so if you see Google Chrome in the list of updates, simply click Install Now to update your browser.
The Importance of Regular Google Chrome Updates
Google Chrome is the browser of choice for most developers. It is free to download, has extensions, and is compatible with many operating systems. New releases of Chrome Dev Tools make it easier to view, run, and debug apps.
Keeping your Chrome browser up to date allows you to use the latest versions. Similarly, updating all the remaining applications on your Linux machine will allow you to check out the latest developer offerings.
