Second Chrome 67 Beta Build Lands in the Chrome OS Beta Channel

As the Chromium team within Google continues to prep the next release of Chrome OS, a new build of Chrome 67 has arrived in the Chrome OS Beta Channel.  Build 67.0.3396.41 (Platform version: 10575.32.0) is now available for devices and is the second Chrome 67 based build to be available to testers with devices in the channel.

As a reminder to those new to Chrome OS, the Beta Channel is the last stop before a build gets released to the publicly used Stable Channel.  Chrome 67 is expected to be released on our around June 5, 2018.  That means we likely have a couple of more beta builds coming before it is released.

Chrome 67 will bring a number of feature changes and improvements to Chrome OS.  While the new keyboard shortcut view made it into Chrome 66, we should see a new power menu, the move of the virtual keyboard to a floating keyboard by default, and lock screen notifications.

There are also likely to be some other experimental features that can be enabled by flags when 67 arrives to the Stable Channel.  Chrome OS was heavily featured at Google I/O this week with support for Linux coming along with other tweaks.
