How to force update Chrome 91 on PC / Mac and Android
It is very easy to force update Chrome on Windows 10, Linux, Mac and Android. The PC / Mac versions being virtually identical on this point, we will show you the procedure on PC / Mac, as well as on Android.

Normally Android apps are automatically updated in the background by the Google Play Store, but if you want to make sure the update is done now, this is also possible:
- Open the Google Play Store on your Android smartphone
- Touch your avatar
- Go to My apps and games
- From there, you can immediately force the Chrome update that you should find in the list
Of course, it is possible that no update is offered to you, whether on PC, Mac or Android. It is possible that the deployment has not yet reached your device, or that the installation has taken place automatically without any action on your part. You can then check the version number in the section About Google Chrome.
