Google’s Chrome OS 76 rolled out this week with all of Chrome 76’s features and a few special ones for Chrome OS which it shared in its release notes.
Unlisted by Google’s official changelog and initially unnoticed among the changes was support for virtual desktops.
Dubbed Virtual Desks in Chrome OS users are able to create new desktops from the multi-tasking screen. This lets them run different apps for different contexts based on what they need at the moment. Microsoft introduced this to Windows natively with Windows 10 and it is good to see Google taking a step forward in making its own desktop OS a little bit more powerful.
