What’s new in Chrome OS: Easy navigation in Chromebook tablet mode
Even when you’re using Chromebook in laptop mode, the shelf is now more compact to give you more space to focus on your task at-hand. This is especially useful if you’re multitasking with various windows.
Speaking of making the most of your screen space, we’ve also extended picture-in-picture to all Google Play Store apps on Chromebook, even for tablet mode. Now when you’re watching a TV show or video on YouTube, Prime Video, Hulu or other apps, you can minimize the video screen and watch it while you’re doing other things on your Chromebook.
Use Chrome, tailored for tablet mode
This update will allow you to more easily manage Chrome tabs with a touch-friendly tab strip while in tablet mode. When you’re browsing, you’ll be able to open a new tab with a big button, reorder tabs by dragging, and close tabs by swiping up.
This change is coming first to the Lenovo Chromebook Duet, which will be available for purchase within the next couple of months. We’ll then bring the tab strip to other Chromebooks with tablet mode soon.
