Chrome beta hits iOS with 3D Touch support

Google has offered public access to its Chrome beta for a while now, but for the first time it’s giving iPhone owners access to its newest browser features. The company recently launched an iOS beta, and it already includes a few new features.

The new Chrome beta is available through TestFlight, an app for publicly testing early versions of new services which Apple bought and relaunched in 2014. TestFlight typically limits each beta to 2,000 people, though it’s possible Apple will make an exception for Google.

If you do get your hands on the iOS Chrome beta, you’ll get 3D Touch support for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. That means you can hold down the homescreen icon to pull up quick options for voice search, creating a new tab and opening a new incognito tab. There are also new shortcuts for Bluetooth keyboards and a few smaller tweaks.

If you want to try out these new features, along with anything else Google decides to test in the future, just hit the source link below. Then pick iOS, fill out a quick form and install the beta for yourself.
