This package was approved as a trusted package on 5/25/2016.

Chrome is a fast, simple, and secure web browser, built for the modern web.


This package uses Chrome’s administrative MSI installer and installs the 32-bit on 32-bit OSes and the 64-bit version on 64-bit OSes. If this package is installed on a 64-bit OS and the 32-bit version of Chrome is already installed, the package keeps installing/updating the 32-bit version of Chrome.

This package always installs the latest version of Google Chrome, regardless of the version specified in the package. Google does not officially offer older versions of Chrome for download.

To install Google Chrome, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install googlechrome

To upgrade Google Chrome, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade googlechrome

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
