Stable Channel Update for Chrome OS


The Stable channel has been updated to 73.0.3683.88 (Platform version: 11647.104.0/1/2/3) for most Chrome OS devices. This build contains a number of bug fixes and security updates. Systems will be receiving updates over the next several days.

New Features

  • Better Chrome OS out-of-memory management
  • Report additional telemetry data for Chrome OS devices
  • Alerts regarding upcoming removal of remaining Chrome Supervised Users
  • Video Player: switch to native media controls
  • Demo Mode: Switch language setting 
  • Audio Focus on CrOS
  • Developers can share files/folders with Linux apps.
  • Improved native Drive integration with added support for the Drive->Computers root in Files app
  • Demo Mode: Offline enrollment and setup functionality
  • For managed devices, the remotely configured 20 printer maximum cap will be raised to allow for several thousand native printers for each organizational unit in the Google Admin console. If you’re interested in testing the new feature, please join our trusted tester program.

If you find new issues, please let us know by visiting our forum or filing a bug. Interested in switching channels? Find out how. You can submit feedback using ‘Report an issue...’ in the Chrome menu (3 vertical dots in the upper right corner of the browser).

Any chance the ChromeOS vs Vizio casting is fixed? Many have now reported on Reddit that we can no longer cast tabs to a Vizio based TV. Casting natively such as YouTube works just fine, but tabs turn entirely grey and are unusable. I have now reported this bug to both Google and Vizio.... I went through a lot of hassle to get this properly reported. But nothing has been done. Nobody can cast tabs from ChromeOS (I have a Pixelbook but others have reported the same problem on other Chromebooks) to a Vizio TV anymore. This started about a month or so ago. Quite frustrating and I feel like none of my efforts have been even heard...

Just updated to this on my Acer R11 Chromebook. Play Protect Certification is still missing from the Google Play Store's Settings page, which forces me to assume it's NOT Certified and cannot run apps which use SafetyNet. Is there a reason for this?
