How do I update Google Chrome?
In the top-right corner of your browser window, hit the 3 dots.
Click Help, then go to About Google Chrome.
The page should then detail which version of Google Chrome you currently have, and direct you to update if necessary.
Don’t forget that the only way that your update will be complete is if you relaunch Chrome altogether.
This means you have to close all your browser tabs and windows and quit the application, then reload it.
