If you've been syncing passwords and autofill entries with Chrome on the desktop, you can now access that information from an Android device. Google today rolled out an update to Chrome for Android that enables the functionality, which should make logging into websites and filling out forms a bit less laborious on the go. Those who've downloaded Google's beta version of Chrome — which lets users test out new features before they're widely released — have had access to the new syncing options since last month. Now everyone can take advantage of the added convenience; you just need to make sure you're signed into the same Google account across your mobile and desktop devices. If you're having trouble finding the new sync tools after hitting the update button, don't fret. Google says the rollout will take a few days. In the meantime, you can check out today's update to Google Search, which enabled real-time shipment tracking with "select" couriers and faster overall search results.
