Google has pushed out updates for the iOS and Android versions of Chrome, as the company continues beefing up its browser for use with tablets and smartphones.

Chrome 29 for iPhones and iPads now understands pronouns in voice search mode, so that a query asking who is the US president can be followed by another one inquiring who is ‘his’ wife, Google saidin a blog post.

The update also sharpens the process of toggling between websites and search result pages, and adds a feature that shows users data cost savings realised via the bandwidth management tool.

Finally, Chrome 29 for iOS also features unspecified single sign-on improvements with other Google web applications, as well as bug fixes and security improvements, according to the company.

Google didn’t immediately respond to a request for more details.

Meanwhile, the company squashed a few bugs in version 30 of Chrome Beta for Android that affected searching through the browser’s history, a search auto-complete function and the Swype mobile keyboard application.
