After deploying Chrome 87, the new version of Google Chrome at the end of November, the Mountain View firm began broadcasting Chrome OS 87 this Saturday, December 5. As reported by our colleagues from the 9To5Google site, this new version of the OS is being equipped new features, mostly from Chrome 87.

Logic to find there in this case search by tabs. This function will be particularly useful for users who usually open dozens of tabs per session. Say you have to look for something specific in this armada of open tabs. Rather than doing them one by one, a new search bar allows you to quickly find the desired tab, without wasting precious minutes.

Searching by tabs, a very practical find

This additional search engine searches all open pages, whether they are in a group or not. To use it, you just have to go to the small arrow pointing down icon, located at the top right of the screen. In addition, the listing of all open pages will appear below the search bar.

In addition, Chrome OS 87 now displays the battery level of devices connected to your Chromebook. From the Settings menu, go to the Bluetooth menu. From here, you can directly view the charge level of your Bluetooth headset, keyboard, or mouse. And if the autonomy starts to get low, a notification will be sent to the user to warn them.
