Soon, you won't need to be a beta tester to use the redesigned Chrome, which will feature Google's Material Design language. A new post from Google tipped the public release date for Chrome 69, which will feature the new, cleaner-looking version of the web browser.
The latest Chrome Enterprise Release Notes list Chrome 69 as coming on Sept. 4, and note that "Chrome Browser will have a new design across all operating systems," referring to the Material Design refresh that Google made available to Canary-level testers back in July. The redesign will also include "Windows 10 notification-center integration, touchpad gesture navigation on Windows, and autofill updates."
