Chrome OS stable channel update brings Chrome Launcher 2.0 and more
Late last month Google introduced a new update for Chrome OS to the beta channel which brought several changes to the table, including Google Now integration and an improved voice search experience with the Chrome Launcher 2.0. Now that same experience is making its way over to the stable channel.
While the Google Now-like improvements are the most significant news here, Chrome OS is also seeing a Material Design update for the Files app, an update Calculator app, support for password-protected zips, and the default typeface for Chromebooks is being updated to Roboto in order to be “more consistent with Material Design”. You can also expect a number of bug fixes and performance improvements.
The latest update bumps Chrome OS’ version number to 42.0.2311.87, and is expected to reach all users in the next few weeks. For more details on what to expect, be sure to head on over to the official Chrome blog.
