As of 2015, to update Chrome, click the Chrome menu icon, select About Google Chrome or Update Google Chrome, and close your browser to apply changes. Chrome usually automatically applies updates without notification when you close your browser.
- Open the Chrome menu
On the browser toolbar, click the Chrome menu icon, which has three parallel bars. If you have missed an update, the icon changes color. If two days have passed, the icon is green, if four days have passed, it is orange, and if seven or more days have passed, it is red.
- Update the browser
If the Chrome icon has changed colors, select Update Google Chrome from the menu. You can also update your browser and check the current version by selecting About Google Chrome, from the menu, and the browser automatically checks for updates while you are on this page.
- Close the browser
If the Chrome icon has changed colors, click the Restart button in the dialog box that appears. You can also click Not Now, and restart your browser at a later time. If you do restart at this moment, Chrome saves any open tabs and windows. When you next open your browser, the update is applied and your tabs and windows are restored. If you selected About Google Chrome, from the menu and updates are available, click Relaunch when prompted.
