Google Chrome to support multimedia buttons on your keyboard

Systems would be receiving the updates over the next several days, the post noted.

To test out the experimental dark mode for yourself, you can download the latest version of the Chrome Beta app from the Google Play Store now, though you will need a handset running Android 9 Pie for it to work.

In addition, Google has taken care of the security of the new Chrome OS 72. This change only applies to the installation process and not to all casting features: users can still send cards, videos or audio from Chrome OS to a Chromecast device.

With Chrome 72, Google has optimised the browser for touchscreen devices in tablet mode and added app shortcuts for Android apps that are now searchable in the launcher, the company wrote in a blog post on Saturday.

If you use a laptop or desktop PC a lot, the dedicated keys that control volume and other elements of your media can come in pretty handy, as they're often easier to find and use than the on-screen buttons that perform the same functions.

The update has new features such as the Picture in Picture (PiP) mode for Chrome sites and external storage access for Android apps. You can use Android Pie for vocal searches, or, if you prefer to type, you can just tap the bar shaped as a pill which is located at the center of the screen. By doing this you will be able to access all the files that you have saved on Google Drive via Backup and Sync.
