Android quietly partners up with Chrome

It took them look enough, but with the next release of Android, Jelly Bean, Google has finally brought its Chrome Web browser to Android.

Google brought its popular Chrome Web browser to Android Ice Cream Sandwich as a beta feature earlier this year. Today, at Google Input/Output, Google quietly showed that Chrome will now be built into Jelly Bean.

Of course, getting your hands on Jelly Bean, like any new version of Android, depends on your vendor. Jelly Bean itself won’t arrive on anyone’s phone—except for developers—until mid July. The first device to include Chrome is the brand new Asus Google Nexus 7.
