Dev Channel Update for Chrome OS

The Dev channel has been updated to 25.0.1354.2 (Platform version: 3379.2.0) for all Chrome OS devices. This build contains a number of stability fixes and feature enhancements. 

Some highlights of these changes are:

  • Modifications to the system tray to display accessibility options.
  • Tap dragging is now a user preference.
  • Fixes to corruption issues for some Netflix videos on Samsung Chromebox and Samsung Chromebook Series 5. 
  • Extended multi-monitor support
Known Issues:
  • Chrome Office Viewer will not work on this version for Samsung Chromebooks. Workaround: Upload files to your Google Drive online, and view files online.
  • Enabling the accessibility magnifying glass prevents the screen from redrawing properly (37107)

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

The link to the Extended multi-monitor support is broken. Can't find it in the bug tracking either. Would like to see the description of this...

Hi Danielle, has the team noticed this issue with tabs not loading properly once Chrome has been open for a little while ( a very little while). In essence it appears as if it simply stops working, requires closing and 2 or 3 attempts to re-open, resulting in the message that Google wasn't closed properly and asking if I want to restore. Many people are reporting this online.
