Google rolled out Chrome 71 to desktop users last week, this week it is following it up with Chrome OS 71 for users of Chromebooks.

The update comes with many new features, most of them are for the Pixel Slate but are currently being tested for other Chromebooks with Chrome OS 72.

The firm is bringing in support for Better Together, a feature that links your phone and Chromebook, lighting up automatic smart unlock and messaging support. Itís worth noting that while the Android Messages app is the same one accessible on the web, Chrome OS 71 users will be able to reply to notifications from their notification center without needing to launch a full app.

The firm has also redesigned the camera app and added portrait mode to it for those who like to take photos with their tablet.

Finally, Google Assistant is coming to more Chromebooks. Google says itíll hit the Pixel Slate first, but itíll probably be accessible behind a feature flag for users who want to turn it on.

Hereís the full changelog:

■ Refreshed look for the Camera app

■ Fingerprint and PIN enrollment in Out of Box Experience

■ Autocomplete in Launcher search

■ Adaptive top UI in Chrome browser based on user scrolling

■ Unified setup flow to connect with an Android phone

■ Assistant natively integrated into the OS (Pixel Slate first, expanding to more devices later)

■ New features for families including app management and screen time limits.

■ Ability to create semi-full pages in Launcher for customizations

■ Launched Android P on Pixel Slate

■ Fingerprint authentication mode on Pixel Slate

■ Portrait mode for Camera app on Pixel Slate

Google is rolling out this update to Chrome OS devices over the next couple of weeks.
