- Chrome 59 for Android will be available on Google Play
- It brings full support for aPNG file format
- It also introduces new Image Capture API
Chrome 59 for Android also introduces full support for aPNG which is basically similar to GIF format but comes with additional support for 24-bit images and 8-bit transparency as well. It caught developers’ attention after Apple adopted it in iMessages with iOS 10. Android Police reports that there is also the introduction of image capture API that essentially gives web pages more control over your device’s camera. The new API lets webpages choose between multiple cameras available on your device, zoom, use flash, and even focus on an image. It takes photos in full resolution as well, and as is the norm, it asks for permission to access the camera before performing the task.
Chrome version 59.0.3071.92 for Android has been released and will be available on Google Play over the course of the next week.
