After rolling out to Android, Mac, Windows, and Linux, version 67 of Chrome OS is now available. Notable features include a new “Touchable material 2.0” design for tablet devices and support for desktop Progressive Web Apps. There are also new APIs for creating VR experiences, ADB support, and the perfunctory security and bug fixes.
Progressive Web Apps are more commonly associated with mobile, but Google argues that they have a place on desktops given the continued importance of these devices in work settings. Like on Android, desktop PWAs can be “installed” alongside other apps, cache content with service workers, and feel native with windows featuring no address bars or tabs.
