To save you the search, we leave you this uptodown link , a safe APK portal, so you can download Chrome . Simply click on “Latest version” and, on the next screen, on “Download”. Once the download is finished, it may not let us install the Google Chrome APK as it is an unknown application, but it will give us the option to redirect us to the settings, from where we can grant permission to the mobile to install external applications, that is, this APK.
