Yesterday, Google released Chrome OS version 103 update, which enhances the system’s connectivity with cell phones and further improves the convenience of the system.
The first is the introduction of “Recent Photos” in Phone Hub, the Chrome OS control center that has been used to reply to text messages and check your phone’s battery level. Now, in Chrome OS 103, you can also quickly access your phone’s recent photos through Phone Hub and drag and drop them to your computer. It’s worth noting that this feature can be used offline.
Second, Google has improved Nearby Share in Chrome OS. Chromebooks can now securely and directly connect to a WiFi network that has been saved in the phone, without the need for a password. To do this, simply tap on the Chromebook you want to share in Nearby Share while sharing WiFi on your phone and the network will be shared. In addition, the Nearby Share feature allows you to share music, pictures and other files.
IT Home has learned that Google has also announced that by the end of this summer, Chromebooks will be able to pair with headphones or other accessories through Google’s Quick Pairing Framework, which will bring up a pop-up on the Chromebook screen when a Bluetooth headset is paired, asking the user if they are paired with it.
