Android

The official changelog for the Android version is not as long as the rest, but Google notes on their Blog that Chrome 64 for Android prevents sites with an abusive ad experiences from opening new windows or tabs without user permission. This isn’t their integrated ad-blocker yet, but it’s a technique which e.g. blocks other website requests which can’t be controlled by the user like automatically redirections. It in theory also blocks the annoying popups which want you to install fake updates.

Audio Muting

This version also adds a new site-wide audio muting setting as part of Google’s push for more consistent media autoplay behavior. On Android, heading to Settings > Site settings will reveal a new Sound menu. Here users can mute sites from playing audio (set to Allow by default), as well as add exceptions.

Improved pop-up blocker

An easier integration was integrated which allows clicked play buttons and site controls to be configured by the user needs. Transparent overlays can be also be blocked from opening new tabs or windows.
