In Chrome 29 Beta Google has released several new Chrome Apps APIs and new features on Chrome for Android. Significant updates include Android support for the Web Audio API for processing and synthesizing audio and WebRTC, the real-time communication API.

The Web Audio API is a high-level JavaScript API for processing and synthesizing audio to allow web developers to implement professional-quality audio production apps and modern game audio engines.
