When reporting this package as outdated make sure there is indeed a new version for Linux Desktop. You can have a look at the "Beta updates" tag in Release blog for this.

You can also run this command to obtain the version string for the latest chrome beta version:

$ curl -sSf https://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/dists/stable/main/binary-amd64/Packages | \
     grep -A1 "Package: google-chrome-beta" | \
     awk '/Version/{print $2}' | \
     cut -d '-' -f1

Do not report updates for ChromeOS, Android or other platforms stable versions as updates here.

Chrome 125 works for me too. But all 5 releases of Chrome 124 just didn't.

For me google-chrome-beta (125.0.6422.4) shows up normally and as wayland surface (without any switch/config needed), maybe next release will fix this white screen issue ...

Newer version doesn't solve the issue. I'm still facing it.

Latest release seems broken in Wayland.

Chrome does not render at all, and it glitches the UI until you quit it. It also apparently launches only on primary monitor (similarly to Xwayland applications).

Launching it from terminal gives no useful information, so I can't understand what's going on.

Hi, first of all thanks for your effort. I have only one problem using the application. When I create a PWA of a webpage and add as aplication I cannot the icon of it.

I've read this a bug from kde itself and was fixed in an update. I'm using Manjaro Linux with KDE Plasma 5.26.5 Do you know any way to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

Latest version 96 does not work on XWayland. The program opens but no window appears. Works if I run it as Ozone/Wayland.

Apparently Google uses a single standard updated URL for the latest Debian version (beta, stable, unstable): https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-beta_current_amd64.deb https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-unstable_current_amd64.deb

One could 'SKIP' the SHA check and do a blind build with version update like so:

source=("https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-${_channel}_current_amd64.deb"
pkgver() {
  tar -xf control.tar.xz './control' --to-command="grep -Pio '(?<=Version: )[\d\.]+'"
}

Google Chrome stopped working after updating systemd to 249-3, the error is:

ERROR:network_service_instance_impl.cc(331)] Network service crashed, restarting service.

Seems like the issue is related to DNS resolving, as browser can still open simple pages if I use IP address.

Downgrading to systemd 248-3 resolves the issue. Meanwhile Chromium works totally fine with systemd 249-3.
