Stable Channel Update for Chrome OS

The Stable channel has been updated to 74.0.3729.125 (Platform version: 11895.95.0/1) for most Chrome OS devices. This build contains a number of bug fixes and security updates. Systems will be receiving updates over the next several days.
New Features

  • Send system performance profiling data along with feedback reports
  • Linux apps can output audio
  • USB camera support for the Android Camera app
  • Removal of deprecated supervised users
  • [Accessibility] ChromeVox developer log options: There are now a number of developer options available within the ChromeVox Options page which enable developers to turn on logging for speech and other items
  • Support for new files and folders under the “My files” local root
  • Users can quickly access their most recent apps and Google searches by clicking on the search box
  • Annotate documents from the Chrome PDF Viewer

Security Improvements

  • The SafeSetID LSM has been added to Chrome OS and the Linux kernel. It allows system services to safely manage the users under which their programs run without requiring powerful system privileges. This improves security in the event there is a vulnerability in the system service that can be exploited.

If you find new issues, please let us know by visiting our forum or filing a bug. Interested in switching channels? Find out how. You can submit feedback using ‘Report an issue...’ in the Chrome menu (3 vertical dots in the upper right corner of the browser).
