The search giant has released a new version of the Internet browser, or browsero Google Chrome. As usual, the company promised a new version every couple of weeks and with the arrival of Chrome 107 We have more news available!
The latest version introduces important improvements that promise to improve the experience of millions of daily users of this browser. Next, we cover the main changes for work, play and entertainment already available for this increasingly useful browser.
Google Chrome 107 brings improvements to remote work and video calls
Firstly, version 107 is available for Android, with the Chrome app, as well as for the desktop version, for Windows and Mac computers, for example.
Once installed, users will find improvements in video call service executed in the browser itself instead of through dedicated apps and programs.
Video call platforms can thus simplify the list of screen-sharing tabs and screens.
That is, if during a Zoom call they want to share their own screen, or any Chrome window/tab, we will have that infinity mirror effect. Something that never conveys an air of professionalism.
In short, Chrome will show an alert in case we are sharing a tab where a video call is taking place to proactively prevent the famous mirror effect.
Native support for H.265 video format hardware decoding
Google Chrome 107 also introduces support for decoding, or hardware decoding, of the H.265 video format, also known as HEVC. This format is now supported by Chrome in the latest version, as well as on Android 5 and above or macOS 11 and above devices, as well as on various ChromeOS and Windows devices.
Future of passwordless authentication closer to reality
In addition, we also have good news for those who want to try passkeys, Google’s new implementation to say “goodbye” to passwords. The new type of authentication is already supported in this version of the browser and will allow the user to choose the preferred method for login and authentication.
How to get Chrome 107 update?
The new version of Google Chrome is now available, free of charge, for download – through the Play Store, for Android mobile devices. In addition, Desktop users can access Chrome Settings and, in Privacy and Security, do a check.
The browser will promptly download and install the latest version of the browser, finally restarting it.
