Google recently released the ChromeOS 116 system, which will be gradually pushed to users in the next few days.
The ChromeOS 116 system has added a number of new features, which are organized as follows:
Enhanced auto-correction: When a user types in English using a physical keyboard, the feature is automatically turned on in compatible apps to correct spelling, typing, and other errors. Google also said that the feature also improves the automatic error correction performance of the virtual keyboard and other accessibility features. Files search improvements: In the Files app, the search function now searches both local and Google Drive content. The search results page also provides the following filtering options:
· My Files or All Locations
· Any time, today, yesterday, last week, last month, last year
· All types, audio, documents, pictures and videos
PDF Conversion: The system can convert images in PDF files to text using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology to improve the screen reader experience. Additionally, the image-to-text feature will be available in the Chrome browser in the coming months.
RGB Keyboard Customization: Users can customize the color of each zone of the RGB keyboard on models such as Acer Chromebook 516 GE, Asus Chromebook Vibe CX34 Flip, Lenovo Ideapad Gaming Chromebook, and HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook. A monochrome backlight option is still available.
Setup wizard update: Google has updated the setup wizard for ChromeOS, allowing users to choose some customization options, such as touchpad scrolling direction and display size, before they start using their Chromebook. The setup wizard also adds some Material You style elements.
