Google has begun rolling out Chrome OS 77, making the platform powers of Assistant accessible to the devices.
The voice AI used to be an unique Pixel, although adventurous users have been able to switch it on for a while as a hidden feature if they are in one of the beta channels of Chrome OS.
The newest version of the platform makes Assistant available "on most Chromebooks," and all users have to do it by saying "Hey Google" or by clicking on the Launcher's Assistant logo.
Moreover, the variant allows users to control audio from one position, making it possible to mute their device when, say, a video suddenly begins to play from one of their many, may other tabs.
These controls can be easily accessed by clicking on the display's bottom right corner. Within the Family Link app, it is now also easier for parents to add screen time for their children if they behaved exceptionally well.
The updated platform also facilitates the sending of web pages to other devices, which was a feature that rolled out earlier this month with Chrome version 77. All users want to do this is click the address bar and select "Send to your devices." Chrome OS 77 also includes battery-saving measures that switch off the device after three days of standby.
Google's announcements state the update "will roll out progressively over the next few days." Those who haven't yet got it will see it hit their devices soon enough.
