Google rolled up a new and a big update for its Chromebooks, announced yesterday, this new update (build 42.0.2311.87) will add several new features to your Chrome OS system.
The most significant feature provided in this update is the integration of Google Now and voice search, which will be directly accessible straight from the launcher. Google Now will provide you with all relevant sort information like weather, traffic, scores or details on a topic or a person you need quickly. Google’s smart engine isn’t all that’s exciting but it seemed necessary in a Chrome OS system. Along with that, other features include – support for protected ZIP files, a new material look for the Files app, an improved Calendar, redesigned calculator app and other various bug fixes and security improvements. The default font will be changed to ‘Roboto’, Google’s own font face to match better with the material design look of the machine’s UI.
The update went live yesterday as announced by Google but might take up to a week or so to be available as an OTA update for your system.
