BREAKING: Google Chrome update (v66) fixes media upload bug

The conclusion of April left Google Chrome users on Android devices complaining about a weird bug that inhibited the upload of media files (like pictures) on social media services like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. Basically, the Chrome browser app crashed and threw an error stating “unfortunately chrome has stopped”.

What’s good is the problem has now been fixed.

Just a few hours ago, Google updated it’s official Chrome Releases blog page informing Android users about the advent of a new update (version 66.0.3359.158), saying that it fixes the photo upload bug.

Chrome for Android has been updated to version 66.0.3359.158; the update is now available in Google Play. A list of all Chromium changes in this build can be found here. This release fixes a bug when uploading photos to the Web.


For what it’s worth, the official Chromium bug page (entertaining the matter in question) was updated a couple of days ago to intimate that a fix was on its way.

And this morning, the promised update went live. So those of you troubled with the media upload problem, kindly update the app, and let us know if the problem still persists.
