Google Chrome OS is working with improved address bar, linux app support and more
It is possible that Google will showcase all of these features of Chrome OS during their annual Developer Conference, Google I / O.
Looks like Google’s Chrome OS is set for a big overhaul. These include a new address bar, Linux app support, Bluetooth redesign of the OS, UI changes, and more. In a post on Google+, François Beaufort said the team is testing an updated address bar that will show more details. It includes thumbnails as well as an overview. Those interested can enable chrome: // flags / # omnibox-rich-entity-suggestions and then try restarting Chrome.
Google Chrome is testing Linux app support in OS. Chrome Unboxed posted a screenshot showing the anb option for “Linux (Beta)” in the settings menu. The description reads, “Run the Linux tool, editor and IDE on your Chromebook.” The report states that the use of this launched Linux container is permitted.
XDA developers have found that Chrome OD can also get app shortcuts that allow users to skip certain functions or actions within the app. It should be noted that although the feature is available on Android Oreo powered smartphones, Chrome OS did not get the feature because the apps are separated into their own containers.
Also, Bluetooth functionality has been updated. In the past, users have complained about the feature with issues with pairing, connectivity, and audio playback. Reporter notes that a new flag called #newblue has appeared on Chrome OS Dev This enables a new Bluetooth daemon. However, XDA developers have reported that the new Bluetooth daemon is the first step in getting Bluetooth back on the new OS.
It is possible that Google will showcase all of these features of Chrome OS during their annual Developer Conference, Google I / O. The event will start on May 8 and run until May 10. Click to know what to expect from the event Here.
