If you have an Android-based smartphone, chances are it came with Google Chrome pre-installed from the factory, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't seek alternative web browsers. Other browsers may return superior performance to Chrome, as is the case with UC Browser. UC Browser is a potent mobile browser that is famous for its multitude of embedded features. Users of the UC Browser will be happy to learn that it has recently been updated. The New Update The new UC Browser update was issued the number 188.8.131.521. The new update is delivered via over-the-air channels. To get it, you only have to keep your phone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network. If you haven't installed the new update already, a notification prompting you to do so will pop up in your phone's notification tab. If you haven't received the notification or the update hasn't worked, you can download it manually in the form of a .apk file and then install it. What's Been Improved? One of the most useful features from UC Browser's generous roster is the embedded video player. It was already above average, and the new update enhanced it even more. Not only did it fix a lot of minor bugs, but it also optimized the player, as users reported it runs significantly smoother than it used to. Also, the likelihood of the browser crashing has drastically decreased. Buffering issues or occasional lag will become a thing of the past if the update trend keeps going on. Therefore, if you haven't updated your UC Browser app, make sure that you do it as soon as possible. The developers worked hard to make the experience as pleasant and smooth as possible, and it shows. Perhaps UC Browser will quickly receive the appreciation it deserves!
