Google celebrated the 10th anniversary of Chrome OS by introducing a major overhaul of the OS design with new features and improvements that should make the platform much more usable and usable.
One of the major innovations is the Phone Hub feature. It connects Android smartphones to a laptop with Chrome OS.
When connected, a panel is displayed with access to the main parameters of the smartphone, including connections and information about the battery charge. You can call your lost smartphone from your Chromebook, quickly “share” your internet connection, view recent pages in the Chrome browser on your smartphone, reply to text messages from your Chromebook, and so on.
The Wi-Fi Sync function has become available for a wide range of devices. It allows you to automatically connect to a Wi-Fi network that the user has set up on a smartphone or other devices running Chrome OS.
Another major innovation is support for Nearby Share technology, which allows you to quickly and conveniently exchange data between Chromebooks and Android smartphones. Google promises to launch the feature on Chrome OS in the coming months, making Nearby Share a full-fledged competitor to Apple’s AirDrop.
The new Screen Capture tool is available from the quick settings panel. You can select an exact area on the screen, take screenshots, create videos with a screen recording, which will be saved in the clipboard. The clipboard itself now stores up to five objects copied by the user. Also, controls for media content playback have been added to the quick settings panel.
Sharing files, images, and links between apps and the browser just got easier with the Share button. The Desks feature has also been updated. It adds support for up to eight virtual desktops and adds a new Overview mode to quickly switch between them. After restarting the laptop, the windows on the various desktops will be restored. And these are not all the innovations of Chrome OS, presented today by Google.
