One of the most useful updates is designed specifically for Android: Users will be able to play and pause audio or video playback from some web apps by tapping a button in the notification tray.
When you visit a website with the <audio> or <video> tag and the media plays for 5 seconds or longer, an icon will show up in your notification tray. Then you’ll be able to pull down from the top of the screen to see a play/pause icon… just like the one you would see if media was playing from a native Android app.
Other new features in Chrome 45 beta include improvements to the Push API, improved scroll performance, and a security update to protect users from the Logjam Attack.
Are you sure 45 is available for Android? I literally just updated Chrome Beta and it’s still on 44. This media control feature is a great one and much needed.
