Ever wanted to listen to the audio from a web video on your Android phone, but couldn't because the sound would stop the moment you switched apps? You won't be hampered from now on. Google has released a beta of Chrome 54 for Android that plays web videos in the background, letting you carry on with other tasks while you finish that lecture or video podcast. You'll get a notification with basic play/pause controls in case you need to take a break. There's no firm indication of when the finished Chrome 54 will be ready for everyone, but you can grab the beta from Google Play if you're feeling experimental.
