This week on The Chrome Cast, we start the show by talking through the handful of fun updates that came along with ChromeOS 107. In a new era where we get updates to our Chromebooks every 4 weeks, it’s always a nice surprise when new user-facing features show up. ChromeOS 107 had quite a few, and we talk through all of them.
One of the other big changes to ChromeOS is the fact that Steam for Chromebooks has come to the Beta Channel with version 108. With an expanded list of supported devices, a bunch of performance improvements, and a simpler setup process, the entire Steam on Chromebooks effort is really beginning to take shape.
