Chromebooks just got even better for people who use an Android phone. Now, you can right-click a phone number when browsing the web on your Chromebook and send the number to your mobile phone.
To set-up this feature, sign into your Google account on your Chromebook and phone and ensure that you’ve turned on syncing for Chrome browser. Save time by getting on the phone quicker and work across devices more easily.
Print without hassle
Now, compatible printers will automatically show up in your printer list—no setup needed. Press Ctrl + P on your keyboard, choose your printer, and you’re done.
We’ve also reduced the number of steps needed to save printers to your profile. If there’s a specific printer you use frequently, you can now save it as default. Just visit your Settings and head to the Printers section.
