Stable Channel Update for Chrome OS

The Stable channel has been updated to 52.0.2743.85 (Platform version: 8350.60.0) for all Chrome OS devices. This build contains a number of bug fixes, security updates, and feature enhancements. Systems will be receiving updates over the next several days.

Some highlights of these changes are:
  • Camera access in SAML flows, allowing for features like QR Code log in
  • Additional Bluetooth APIs for Peripheral Mode Support
  • Allowing Kiosk app to control OS version
  • A new accessibility setting to allow users to combine audio channels
  • Better localization for timezone selection

Security Fixes:
Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed
