Auto Updater for Chromium

Automatic updates for Chromium

Chromium on Android does not have automatic updates like Chrome. This app automatically installs Chromium and keeps it updated.

If your device is rooted, you can install this app and forget it. If root is not available, it will download updates but you will have to confirm installation.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
