The last update of Google Chrome, recently started to be released for desktop and mobile devices, such as cell phones and tablets. Chrome 83 brought some new functions that are very interesting, such as support for digital and facial unlocking via Windows Hello, which was previously available in Chrome Canary, an unstable version of the browser intended especially for developers.
However, despite the new functions and benefits that the update brings, some errors – which ended up being beaten before launch – have already started to be noticed. The new version has flaws in phones and tablets manufactured by Asus. However the Google reported that a patch update is already underway.
Shortly after the update was released, some users have already started reporting tab experiences closing alone on specific smartphones. Apparently the devices that were most affected were the Zenfone Max Pro M1 and the Zenfone Max Pro M2. In addition, the problem also causes failures in the custom chrome tabs and, probably, in the embedded WebViews components.
The Chrome service and support team responded in a forum about the problem, explaining that the Google is already aware of the flaw and that the app developers are already working on a fix. “Our team has investigated these reports and can confirm that we are seeing more than normal failures on some ASUS devices in the latest stable version of Chrome,” replied a company moderator on the forum. “We are working on an update that will address this behavior,” he concluded.
For the time being, as a palliative measure, the only thing that can resolve is to uninstall all updates from the Google Chrome on Google Play Store. It is a bit of a boring procedure, but it can resolve until the patch update arrives.
