Google just shifted the newest version of its Chrome OS from beta to have the release status, and by presenting the version 72, some changes are going to be there worth noticing – in case you are using the correct sort of the device. Included in the biggest adjustments is its native integration of Android 9 Pie and Google Assistant that carries some further Chromebooks. Same as the Android, a pill-shaped bar is present at the center of the screen that is able to be developed for users to type into, or access by means of voice controls.
In case you are a user of Chrome OS on any of the convertible tablet-style hardware such as the Pixel Slate, you are perhaps going to be grateful for updates to the Chrome browser that is making it easier for the user to control by having the touchscreen at the same time as being in tablet mode. The report further says that now there is also an on-by-default picture-in-picture mode for all the videos being played in the browser, in addition to tweaks to menus for its Settings and Cast feature.
Talking about security, Chrome OS 72 sandboxes its “Shill” network manager in order to avoid exploits such as this one revealed in 2016, and it carries with it the USBGuard feature which when the device is locked secures down access to its ports. That helps in the prevention of attacks by using “Rubber Ducky” USB devices that plug in and act as if they are a keyboard to carry out commands at times your computer is supposed to be sleeping safely. In normal cases, Chrome OS hardware is supposed to take hold of the update automatically by the coming few days.
