Google have pushed out another update to their Chrome browser, taking it up to version 69.0.3497.92.
The new release however is not just a step up in version numbers and a few bug fixes, this update includes a new tab design. Gone are the sharply rounded edges of the tabs and a more sleek design has been brought in as you can see below:
If you are looking to mass deploy the new version of Google Chrome, or at the very least keep it up to date, then you can control the deployment by using the official MSI installer that Google provide. This way, you can publish the latest version through your Software Center if you are using SCCM or push it straight out using Group Policy.
You can now download the Google Chrome MSI installer direct from Google using the link below.

If you are pushing this out in your corporate environment, you will want to use the silent installer switches, so this is the command line that you should use for this:
msiexec.exe /i “GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi” /q /norestart
This means it will install quietly (using the /q switch) and will not reboot automatically (using the /norestart) switch.
You can also use the /qb+ switch to show a basic UI.
