Google has updated Chrome OS systems to version 66.0.3359.137 for most Chrome OS devices. The update, which will be rolling out globally over the next several days, finally includes patches for Meltdown on Intel-based Chrome OS devices. As ARM-based Chrome OS devices are only vulnerable to Spectre, all Chrome OS devices are now considered patched against Meltdown.

Additionally, Chrome OS 66 brings a number of bug fixes and additional security updates that haven’t been specified. A raft of the new features have, however, been listed. Most notably, Google is moving to further integrate the Google Play Store into Chrome OS by adding the option to log automatically into the Play Store at sign-in. Android apps now also gain native printing support.

Other key feature upgrades include improvements to external display support including settings enhancements, and a new keyboard shortcut for moving windows from display-to-display. Further, in keeping with the overall theme of making Android apps feel more integrated, users will also run Android apps on external displays. Other new features include the ability to zoom up to 20x with the Chrome OS magnifier and Picture-in-Picture magnification.

More info about the update can be found at the source link below.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
