Google Chrome updates automatically whenever a new browser version is available. The update process occurs in the background, so it does not affect any work in progress and rarely requires action on your part. Updating the browser ensures that users are protected by the latest security updates. To manually apply an update, we usually follow these steps:
Click the Chrome menu in the browser toolbar and select About Google Chrome. The current version number is the series of digits under the heading “Google Chrome”. Chrome will check for updates when you are on this page.
Click Relaunch to apply the updates, if available. By default, the browser saves open tabs and windows and reopens them on restart.
If you receive the Component Not Updated for Chrome error, you can use the Chrome Components page to individually check Chrome components and update them to avoid frequent crashes.
Chrome component page
After pointing this out, you should have noticed that the browser sometimes crashes frequently even after updating. Because? Some Chrome components that cause frequent crashes cannot be individually checked and updated. Fortunately, Chrome found a solution. All Chrome components can now be viewed on one screen.
The latest Chrome web browser includes the new chrome: // component page that you can load into Chrome to retrieve information about the available components.
Just type chrome: // components in the browser’s address bar and hit the Enter key to load the inner page. A “Check for updates” button must be visible under each component. Simply update the components for which updates are available and your issue should be resolved.
Here is a list below:

- And further.
Hope this helps.
