Google's goal is to be more transparent about product life

Starting with media controls, in version 79 they can now be displayed on the lock screen so you can control the content being played without unlocking the device. This works with media apps like YouTube Music, Spotify, iHeartRadio and others. The news also works with Chrome.

Google has also included in Chrome OS 79 settings a unified page to manage app settings. This allows you to manage from one place the settings of different types of apps – installed via Play Store, web app, system apps, and more.

Version 79 is the latest update that will be available in 2019 for the system.

To access the page, click Manage your apps in Chrome OS 79 settings and you'll see a list of all installed apps. Now just click on the desired application to check the related settings:

Other new features in the new version of Chrome OS include a new interface for Overview – the system task manager – on tablets, Virtual Desks feature enhancements, new Tab freeze feature in Chrome that “freezes” inactive tabs for more than 5 minutes to save system resources, and implementation of support for DNS-over-HTTPS to improve security while browsing.

Users with supported devices should start receiving the new version of Chrome OS starting this week.
