Chrome for Android is finally going 64-bit

Chrome 85 will start running on phones with Android 10 and higher. The phones will automatically receive a 64-bit version.

Google has never made the jump and is only available in 32-bit flavor, potentially leading to some unnecessary security and performance degradations.

The first Android version to support 64-bit architecture was Android 5.0 Lollipop, introduced back in November 2014. Since then more 64-bit processors shipped and today virtually all Android 10 devices are capable of running 64-bit software excluding a few.
