Google will now let iOS users test a beta version of Chrome, as the company today quietly added support for the iPhone and iPad to its list of test platforms.

Google’s beta version of its mobile browser now comes with support for 3D Touch and a few other small tweaks, and the company will let you try it out using Apple’s TestFlight developer tool. Apple acquired TestFlight, which lets app makers beta test apps without going through the App Store, through its purchase of a startup called Burstly last year.

To try Chrome beta for iOS, download and register for TestFight from the App Store. Then visit Google’s Chrome beta download website and simply tap the button that reads “download Chrome beta.”

You’ll get a confirmation email and then you’ll have to wait until TestFlight sends you a notification signaling that the app is ready to download. The obvious benefit is 3D Touch support, which will let you hard-press on the Chrome home screen icon to open a new tab or launch voice search.
