At first, Google will let iOS users to try a new beta build of Chrome beta that adds a number of new features, including support for 3D Touch.
But the biggest addition is definitely the introduction of 3D Touch options, which makes Chrome the first third-party browser to get such a feature.

We’ve received reports from our readers saying that, in some cases, the email never arrives, so it’s pretty much impossible to try out the app. Of course, this is probably an issue on Google‘s side, or maybe the company is limiting the number of users allowed to download the beta, so waiting seems to be our only option for the time being.
Some customers complained that the confirm email never comes, so it’s prevented them from trying out the app. It resulted from the company’s strategy to limited number of users allowed to download the beta. Therefore, all we need to do is waiting for the time being to try it.
