Chrome OS 87 is starting to roll out with numerous usability enhancements and visual enhancements.
“This build contains a number of bug fixes and security updates. The systems will receive updates during the next days, “said Google in a blog post.
A new feature called “Tabbed Search” helps users find the pages they have open. Clicking the drop-down button in the upper right corner of your window displays a list of everything you have open. The list includes the page name, domain, and a close button.
9to5Google notes that this feature will roll out first to Chromebooks and then eventually to desktop browsers.
Chrome OS 87 also includes accessory Bluetooth battery levels in Settings and Quick Settings. This feature is primarily designed for wireless headphones and will display a notification with the current battery level once it is connected to your headphones.
The update also includes 36 new backgrounds that can be set by right clicking on the desktop or shelf and selecting ‘set wallpaper’.
Additionally, Chrome OS 87 comes with visual enhancements by renaming virtual desktops and launcher folders. Additionally, the Alt + Tab window switcher now supports touch screen, stylus, and mouse input.
Now you can also rename files and select which folder to store documents in when saving to your Google Drive. The tech giant has also updated language settings to make it easier for multilingual users to navigate.
