Chrome OS 87 Adds Bluetooth Battery Indicator, Interactive Alt+Tab Experience and New Wallpapers
The tech giant Google is rolling out Chrome OS 87 to the Stable channel, the final update of the year. Here are a list of new features and changes you’ll notice when you update to this new version of Chrome.
Keep Open Tabs To A Minimum With Tab Search
Easily search your open tabs across open browser windows to find what you’re looking for instead of opening another tab. Click the drop down button, located at the top right of your browser to open ‘Tab Search’ and begin searching.
View Your Bluetooth Battery Level In Settings And Quick Settings
Once any Bluetooth headphones are connected to your Chromebook, you’ll be able to see how much battery is remaining by simply opening the Quick Settings or Settings menu.
When you connect Bluetooth headphones to your Chromebook, you’ll see a notification at the bottom right hand side of your screen letting you know the headphones’ battery level. You may also check the battery level at any time while the headphones are connected, in Settings and Quick Settings under the Bluetooth icon.
New Wallpaper Options Are Now Available
Google has added 36 new Wallpapers from four different artists that will all be available in M87!
This update will be progressively rolling out over the coming days. Your device may not immediately be eligible for this update.
