Spotted by tech enthusiast Pedro Justo on X (formerly known as Twitter), Google Chrome now runs natively on Windows on Arm, after Google Canary released an Arm64 build of the browser, that can be downloaded and installed here.

This means Chrome will run much faster and its performance will be greatly changed for the better on Windows on Arm devices, much to the delight of those Chrome users who need to use the Chromium-based Edge when accessing the Internet on these devices.

Windows was the last operating system Google was yet to release an Arm-based version of its popular Chrome browser, as the tech giant already released such a version for other OS around, including Linux, or Mac.

This is a huge step in the right direction because it means tech companies are ready to develop apps specifically made for Windows for Arms devices, which are known to last longer due to their durable battery life, be capable of stronger internet connections through 4G/5G technologies, and overall being far more portable than usual laptops.

With Google joining the Arm crowd, Windows on Arm could become a real possibility of being a standard Windows version in the future: we already have processor manufacturers such as Intel, ADM, and Qualcomm working on Arm-based chipsets, but as we could see, the big software companies, such as Google, are joining the hype.
