Chrome OS 75 is here with new parental controls and improved integration for Linux apps

Chrome OS 75 Google has had the pleasure of announce the launch of Chrome OS 75, the new version of your desktop operating system that, in a simple and official way, is only available for Chromebook devices. This is (in theory) a major update that comes with new features and performance and security improvements. The version that has been labeled "stable" is specifically v75.0.3770.102 (Platform version 12105.75.0). Perhaps the novelty that most interests our readers is one related to running Linux applications.

Chrome OS has been compatible with Linux applications for a few months now and the news we are talking about is that now "Linux" can access Android devices via USB. Support for running Linux apps on Google Chrome is still in beta, but it gets a little better with each new release of Google's desktop operating system. Below you have the list of news that comes with Chrome OS 75.

What's new in Chrome OS 75

  • Function to allow parents to give their children more time on devices with Chrome operating system.
  • New Assistant for children (kid friendly) for child accounts.
  • Linux (Beta) can now access Android devices over USB.
  • The Files application now supports third-party file applications.
  • Added support for PIN code with native printers for managed devices.
  • Safety: Microarchitecture data sampling mitigation.

The new version of Chrome OS has already started to reach all supported devices, which means that, who has not already received it, will receive it in the next hours / days. To check if the update is waiting for us, we have to go to the settings page "About Chrome OS", similarly to how we do it in the Google web browser. If available, the download and installation will begin automatically. Have you already received it?

    The truth is that I prefer to use GNU-Linux direct rather than a Google product. I don't see any advantage to using Chrome OS.
