Learn how to get the world's most popular web browser on your device.

Google Chrome is a free web browser. As well as being quick and easy to use, it's particularly useful if you have an Android smartphone or use any Google features such as Calendar, Mail, Drive or even YouTube.

It’s easy to download the browser onto your PC, smartphone or tablet. We show you how below.

Download Chrome for Windows or Mac OS

Go to https://www.google.com/chrome/ and click Download Chrome. Google will identify your computer's operating system and offer you the correct version for Windows or Mac.

Read the terms and conditions and tick or untick whether you want to send automatic reports of any errors back to Google. Once you’re happy with that, click Accept and install.

To use Chrome on Windows you will need Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 or later. To use Chrome on a Mac, you will need OS X Yosemite 10.10 or later.

Here's how to make Chrome your default browser on Windows 10.

Download Chrome on your phone or tablet

To download onto your Android device, click here, press Install, and follow the instructions. Though most Android phones come with Chrome pre-installed, so you shouldn't have to download it.

If you already have it, and an update is available, you'll see an Update button in place of Install. If you already have it but no new version is available, it will say Open instead of Update or Install.

Google Chrome on Android
