What's New with Chromebook?
Chromebooks update automatically to provide you with the latest features and keep the software fresh and speedy. Here are some highlights from recent updates.
Connect your devices in a snap
With Fast Pair, connect new Bluetooth headphones with just a tap. When your Chromebook detects a new, eligible headphone nearby, it will automatically prompt set up. And if you've already set up your headphones with your Android phone, they'll be ready to use on your laptop, too.
Quickly find and add special characters
It's even easier to add symbols, characters, and emoticons to a conversation, document, or any other text field on Chromebooks. Just use the keyboard shortcut (Everything Button or key + Shift + Space) to pull up the enhanced icon selection tool, then scroll or use the search bar to quickly find the perfect special character or emoticon.
More easily manage voice commands
You might already use voice commands to dictate and edit text on your Chromebook. Now you can have more flexibility with how you phrase commands. For example, if you would like to move the text cursor to the next line, you can say "move next line" or "down one line". To try this command and others, enable Dictation in Settings.
