Does anyone know what the direct URL for the M1 version of Google Chrome is? I'm using the script that will always download the latest version so I'm trying to update it. Right now it's DownloadURL="https://dl.google.com/chrome/mac/stable/GGRO/googlechrome.dmg"
Thanks!

For anyone looking for the pkg version, this URL is working for me:

https://dl.google.com/chrome/mac/universal/stable/gcem/GoogleChrome.pkg

Does anyone know the link for the pkg file for M1?
Then one above is/was for the Intel pkg

While I am sure there are other ways to do this, one way to find the current Chrome download URL is the following:

On any mac (doesn't have to have the M1 chip), use Chrome to go to the "normal" Chrome download site and select to download the Apple chip version. Once the download starts, cancel the download. Then either "Show All" downloads or open another tab in the same chrome browser and go to: chrome://donloads/
Then for that Apple chip Chrome download you just canceled you should see the URL as in the attached screenshot.

In my case (just a few minutes ago) I got:
https://dl.google.com/chrome/mac/universal/stable/GGRO/googlechrome.dmg
(This would be for the Apple Chip "M1" version of Chrome)

Bonus info: For those of you scripting this download, on an M1 equipped mac the command "unane -p" returns "arm" ...

Hope it helps someone,

Google's KB article is more direct and provides the full URL you should use (including accepting the terms of service):
https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/9915669?hl=en

https://dl.google.com/chrome/mac/stable/accept_tos%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.google.com%252Fintl%252Fen_ph%252Fchrome%252Fterms%252F%26_and_accept_tos%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fpolicies.google.com%252Fterms/googlechrome.pkg

These PKG links are requiring rosetta to be installed. They are listed by google as universal binary, but appear to not actually be, or at least not recognized by the m1 Mac as such...
