I like to use Chromium beside Google Chrome in both Linux and Windows. In Windows it acts like a portable program, unlike in Linux, where it can be updated automatically if desired.

I would like to be able to update Chromium automatically, or by issuing a command, running a program etc -- and not to check and download manually newer versions.

Is this possible?


You can use the tool chromium auto updater.

You can set the time, when it should update.

But there are many other features:


  • daily update for Chromium browser at 8pm (can be changed)
  • you don't have to close browser during the update
  • you can update anytime by 'Start Menu' icon
  • does not work in the background and does not waste RAM memory
  • can be used (first use) as a Chromium Installer if browser not installed
  • you can install and use Chromium independently of Google Chrome
  • installation and uninstallation takes only 1 second

To change or remove automatic download:

  • open Task Scheduler - Select task "Chromium Auto Updater by Marcin-prv" -> Properties -> Triggers

'Delete' and 'New' to create new update task, or just 'Delete' to remove automatic update.

To update instantly: under Start menu, go to Chromium - Chromium auto updater - Update now

  • This app works wrongly. It downloads smth and then I see Chromium is v51 again, whereas current version is 54. – Suncatcher Nov 5 '16 at 7:18
