Google has been working for some time to make its operating system for desktops an increasingly serious option. And today we echo a news from our fellow SoftZone as Chrome OS 67 is adapting its interface to look more like Android P.

Little by little we have seen how Chrome OS has been getting closer and closer to the interface of the operating system for mobile phones and tablets of the great G. We have seen some functions such as the floating keyboard or especially the arrival of Google Play . And now, after the launch of the first tablet with this operating system, now we have a new step of Chrome OS to look like Android P: it will have a very similar design.

And is that the last published images of the latest beta of Chrome OS shows an interface that is very reminiscent of the next version of Android . We can see that the system tray has the same quick configuration, colors and shapes of the icons.

According to the first images of Chrome OS 67 we see that the interface is really similar to the view in the developer version of Android P. If you want to enjoy this new design of Chrome OS based on Android P you must activate the test flag through the code # enable-system-tray-unified.

On the other hand Google is testing a new start button in the Chrome address bar for Android. This button can be activated in Chrome Canary, the beta version of the manufacturer’s mobile browser, using the # force-enable-home-page-button flag.

This start button will serve to take us automatically to the web page that we have previously designated . We have already seen it in other web browsers and it was expected that this functionality will eventually return to Google’s browser for mobile devices.

We do not know when this will arrive new functionality to Chrome for Android , although most likely before the release of beta 67 we have this new functionality. What is clear is that Google wants the different interfaces of their operating systems have a similar design to make it easier for the user to use. And the arrival of the start button in Chrome for Android is great news.
