By default you are automatically placed in the Beta channel. This means that you will receive stable releases but you won’t get the latest features and bug fixes.
Whereas
If you change to the Dev channel you will be able to get the latest features and bug fixes.

To do this you need to download the Google Chrome Channel Switcher

You can download it from here
