Chrome OS 79 Adds Media Controls in Lock Screen, Mouse Acceleration Control

Based on the recently released Google Chrome 79 web browser, which landed for Linux, Android, macOS, and Windows platforms last week, Chrome OS 79 is here with a bunch of improvements and new features, starting with media controls in the lock screen to make it more convenient for users to control their media. The new media controls in lock screen feature allows users to control their media right from the lock screen when they’re listening to audio on their Chromebook. Users will be able to play, pause, and skip audio tracks Spotify, YouTube Music, and many other apps without unlocking their Chromebook.
