The latest version of Chrome OS is now being introduced on Chromebooks and has many more new features than normal. The largest, as noted by Android police, is the addition of virtual desktops. You can switch between up to four different desktops with their own window layouts.
When you swipe up to view all windows in overview mode, you should see a new button in the upper right corner labeled "New Desk" that creates a new space where you can drag windows. It's not that different from how Apple does it in Mission Control on the Mac. You should then be able to swipe with four fingers to switch between them.
Google has too has launched a new web app which shows the newest functions available on Chrome OS. Because there are so many versions – one comes out every six weeks and we are now at number 76 – it can be difficult to keep up. 9to5Google says it should appear in a notification on Chromebooks soon.
Weird, Google does not use this feature in its release blog, instead, draw attention to a few other things. The most important of these is & # 39; automatic clicks & # 39 ;, an accessibility feature that allows you to activate a mouse click by moving the pointer over a specific object. It also adds better media controls – the new controls should manage sound better within tabs and you can also find an overview of all tabs that make sound in the system menu. Finally, the company has also improved Google account management for Chrome OS.
There are a number of other changes that Google does not mention, well documented by Kevin Tofel on About Chromebooks. Perhaps the best option is to send a Chrome OS URL to your phone. Google also finally ends support for Flash and makes it easier to see when a web page can be installed as a progressive web app.
This is the "stable" version of Chrome OS 76, which most people should use – but many people often use the beta version, so some features may not be new to you. As with many operating system updates these days, it doesn't affect everyone at the same time, but it should soon be rolled out to your Chromebook if you don't have it yet.
