Google has released Chrome OS 72 for Chromebook convertibles and tablets. This version of the operating system includes a version of the Chrome browser that is optimized for touchscreen devices when used in tablet mode. In addition, the support for Android applications has been improved, so that the devices, especially of course the tablets, can function more like Android tablets. For example, Android apps can now use external storage sources and you can search for shortcuts.
In addition, Google has made a number of other changes.
- Picture-in-picture support on Chrome websites.
- Files that are saved with Google Drive via the automatic storage function are now also under the file manager.
- The ChromeVox screen reader can now read what is under the mouse pointer.
- There are new guidelines for print jobs.
- The Shill network administrator now runs in a sandbox (digital environment within an ox), so you do not immediately work in the root. This security measure can make you less susceptible to certain weaknesses related to the network.
- The Google Assistant is now available.
Chrome OS 72 has official version number 72.0.3626.97 and is now available.
