How to get latest stable release Chrome browser in workflow?

My e2e tests need to run against the latest stable release of Chrome in a GitHub Actions workflow.

Chrome is installed by default, but it’s not the latest version (currently installed 81 but latest is 83). How can I install/update to the latest version of Chrome in a workflow?

The actions/virtual-environments team deploys weekly updates to the software on the virtual environments.

We also see an existing issue requesting for Chrome 83.0. We recommend keeping an eye on that issue as the update to Chrome 83.0 should roll out some time next week:


Thanks. The issue is that always there’s some delay between when Google releases a new Chrome version and the GitHub team updates the machines. That means that during that time I won’t be able to run any tests, as they always run on the latest Chrome.

Can you advice another solution please?
