Google is rolling out a major Chrome OS update for the month of August, complete with new features like improved media playback, an updated camera app for the Pixelbook and more.

For media controls, one can now open system menu and see all of the tabs or apps on Chromebook that are playing audio tracks and control them from one place, Google wrote in a blog-post on Thursday.

Google has announced that it will end support for the Explorer Edition of Glass in February 2020.

Google said that the wearable device is receiving a final update that needs to be installed manually.

“Glass Explorer Edition is receiving a final update that you will need to manually install. After February 25, 2020, this update removes the need and ability to use your Google account on Glass,” the tech major said in a statement.

According to Google’s statement, if you do not update the device, and you are currently signed in and using the device, it will continue to work, but mirror apps, like Gmail, YouTube and Hangouts, will no longer work.
