Hello Chromebook Community,

You should soon see an update on your device for Chrome OS 88! Here’s a list of new features and changes you’ll notice when you update to this new version of Chrome.

Faster and easier web sign-in
Now Chrome OS lets you securely sign in to websites with the PIN or fingerprint you’ve set up to unlock your Chromebook with our new Web Authentication (WebAuthn) feature. Websites that support WebAuthn will let you use your Chromebook PIN or fingerprint ID—if your Chromebook has a fingerprint reader—instead of the password you’ve set for the website. And if you use 2-Step Verification to sign-in, your Chromebook PIN or fingerprint ID can be used as the second factor, so you no longer need to pull out your security key or phone to authenticate. 

To get started, sign in to a supported website like Dropbox, GitHub or Okta, and you’ll be prompted to switch to using WebAuthn for future sign-ins.

Find Photos and Videos taken from your Camera in the new Camera folder
Photos and videos captured with the Chrome OS Camera app will now be saved to a new folder in the Files app: My files > Camera. Any previously captured photos and videos will remain in your Downloads folder.

New enhancements added to Autocorrect
We have improved the Autocorrect user interface with visual indications that autocorrects have happened, as well as a new visual way to undo them. Now you'll see that when an auto-correction has occurred, the corrected word will appear underlined. Learn how to enable Autocorrect in this Help article, in the section 'Correct words automatically'.

Improvements to switching between Virtual Desks 
Switching between desks with the keyboard and touchpad is now smoother and faster. You can jump between multiple desks quickly by double or triple tapping the Switch Desk shortcut. Press Search + [ (to go left) OR Search + ] (to go right). You can find out more about Virtual Desks in this Help article.

Improving Chromebook Accessibility features
Text app now has a Screen Reader mode that works with Chromevox. You can learn how to manage your Screen Reader settings in this Help article.


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,
Rebecca on behalf of the Chrome OS team
