Hello everyone! Here’s another article that relates to Google Chrome. You know why I love this browser? It is because of its extended features. Speed is one of its amazing features coupled with others. This post, however, is not going to tell you about the many features of Google Chrome. In a bit, I will tell you how to enable Google Chrome updates.

Google Chrome robotically updates itself each time it detects a new version on hand. This occurs in the background and you can’t even notice it unless there’s a metamorphosis on the consumer interface.

Who doesn’t love updates? If you don’t, well, I do. I love the fact that each update either comes with a new feature, higher security or a bug fix.

If you love updates as much as I do, here’s how to enable Google Chrome updates.
