Later this year, Chrome OS will gain Apple’s greatest video editor and more

With all of the focus on the Google IO 2022 keynote, it’s understandable if you missed the second-day events, which featured a “What’s new in Chrome OS” keynote that showcased the system’s planned innovations.

Many of the future innovations are concentrated on improving interconnectivity between apps, devices, and Chrome OS under the theme “Better Together.” Be warned that nothing shown has a firm release date. All they mentioned was that it would come out “soon” or “later this year.”

The inclusion of Fast Pair, which allows you to connect compatible earbuds and headphones to Chrome OS with a single tap, is the first change on the list. Your earphones will appear in your Google account, where you can manage them and check their battery life.

Users of Chromebooks will be able to stream communication apps from their Android phones to their laptops. On Chrome OS, a new window will popup where you can use the app’s chat feature. To use this function, the phone must be running Android 13 or higher.
