Chrome OS 100 brings new launcher design to Chromebooks

Like its Chrome browser counterpart, Chrome OS has finally reached its 100th version. Google completely updates its operating system every four weeks. The new release comes with a new design for Chrome OS's launcher, which aims to make it more intuitive and customizable for Chromebook users.

The launcher (for Windows users, it's equivalent to the Start menu) has a friendlier design with more rounded corners than the previous launcher. It now opens from the side of the screen instead of the middle. (This is where the Windows Start Menu was for ages - it's funny enough, moved to the center in Windows 11).

There are also new options for sorting icons — you can arrange them manually and organize them by name or color. As you type the search bar will show a more detailed preview from Google and can search your tabs among Chrome if you have a bunch open.

This launcher has been floating around for a while now; It was seen on the Dragons Canary channel, here last summer. It had some issues in its early days, which Google probably had enough time to work on.

Other updates coming to Chrome OS include a new Dictation Edit feature — you can now say "delete" to delete the previous character you typed, or "move your cursor to the next character" to forward a character. Carry it". - A new YouTube app with in-camera GIF creation app, YouTube supervision and offline access in Family Link. For IT administrators, Google's Admin console has a new report "To see which devices need attention."
