In other exciting Chrome news, 9to5Google reported Friday that the tech giant is also now testing dark mode for Android with the beta version of Chrome 73.

With this update, you'll be able to use dedicated keys to play, pause, seek and cycle through tracks within the Chrome browser, in addition to the volume keys that affect the whole operating system.

The Chrome OS 72.0.3626.97 (Platform version: 11316.123.0, 11316.123.1) is now rolling out for most Chromebook devices.

Google is adding a much-needed feature to its Chrome browser soon.

Chrome OS 72 renews the user interface of Cast and its panel is now in the upper right corner with some minor graphic changes.


Controlling what you listen to while browsing is about to get a hell of a lot easier.

The update has new features such as the Picture in Picture (PiP) mode for Chrome sites and external storage access for Android apps.

Additionally, Chrome 72 would allow files saved via Backup and Sync on Google Drive to be available in the Files app under the My Drive/Computers menu option.

I'll be the first to admit that Microsoft did not invent Reading View, but after Dark Mode and Tab Card Previews, it seems a bit of a coincidence that the latest feature Google is set to work on is a new Reader Mode for the Chrome Browser.

Developers haven't forgotten about security either. The "Shill" File Manager of Chrome OS 72 is now sandboxed by Google just to prevent any vulnerable activities in Networking.
