Hello Chromebook Community,

You should soon see an update on your device for Chrome OS 84! As part of this new release, here’s a list of new features and changes you’ll notice when you update to this new version of Chrome.

Explore App Launch
Explore is a new app that will replace the Get Help app on your device. You can now explore help center content while being offline, get the latest perks for your device, and search directly within the app to learn more about your device. 
 
Take photos with the volume buttons
When your Chromebook is in tablet mode, you can press the up or down volume button to snap a photo or start/stop a video recording. Learn more about tablet mode.
 
Save Videos on Chromebooks
Videos captured in the Chrome OS Camera app will now save as MP4 videos. This makes it easier to use your recorded videos in other apps and while sharing with friends and family. 
 
Overview Mode 
When in Overview mode you can now drag a window to the left or right edge to quickly set up split screen. If you use multiple displays, you can now drag windows between displays while in Overview mode.
 
Linux (Beta) Updates 
You can now control microphone access in Settings for Linux (Beta). By default, the setting will be toggled off and you can change at any time. 
 
Resize Virtual Keyboards
You can now resize your floating onscreen keyboard by dragging from each corner of the keyboard.
 
Search in ChromeVox
It's now possible to search within the ChromeVox menus to find what you are looking for even faster! Simply open the menu and you'll be placed in the Search field. You can either search for a given item, or use the arrow keys to navigate the menus.
 

As always, please share any feedback you have by using the instructions here, and if you encounter any bugs or issues, please feel free to create a new thread on this forum!

Friendly Reminder: This update will be progressively rolling out over the coming days. Your device may not immediately be eligible for this update.

Best,
Alisha on behalf of the Chrome OS team
