About the Google Chrome Enterprise Package

What is the difference between Google Chrome and Google Chrome Enterprise? 

Google Chrome Enterprise installs for use for any user on the machine it’s installed on. This is ideal for ensuring all potential users have the latest version of Google Chrome whereas the non-Enterprise Google Chrome will only install per user. This could leave you with differing versions of Google Chrome over time if not managed. 

Note: At the time of this posting, Google Chrome Enterprise is on version 40.0.2214.93. However, Google Chrome also reports the same version as 66.41.32861 which is the number that will be picked up by inventory applications (such as PDQ Inventory or SCCM). (This information can be found in the Google Chrome package under Package Properties.)

32-bit or 64-bit?

Yes, there is a 64-bit Google Chrome. However, the majority of installs are of the 32-bit (even for 64-bit machines.) If you would like the 64-bit keep in mind that you will also need to make sure that your Java is also 64-bit as well.
