Following the significant milestone reached last month, Chrome OS 101 is starting to roll out today with a few extra improvements and new capabilities.

This update was meant to be released on April 28, however it wasn’t until today that it was made accessible. A new, dark boot screen with the white Chrome logo and chromeOS appears first. Note the absence of a space in addition to the background change for the night.

Some users are currently able to access the new Launcher that was formally introduced in March. You have a floating panel to the left rather than a bottom sheet that can fill the entire screen. This provides additional room for any open windows and may be manually arranged by window name, icon color, or both. The design of the tablet remains unchanged.

Your top five most used apps are displayed at the top, and when you use Assistant to search, more results are displayed inline. After updating to Chrome OS 101, you can manually enable this flag if it hasn’t yet been implemented:

chrome:/flags/#productivity-launcher

There is a new Firmware updates menu (for peripherals) under Settings andgt; About Chrome OS. It starts as a small window
