ChromeOS 108 Release Notes

Stable Channel LTS

Released to stable on November 29, 2022

On November 29, 2022, ChromeOS 108 moved into stable release. ChromeOS 108’s highlights included a faster virtual keyboard, multi-page document scanning, and improved trash management.

Virtual keyboard

If you have a Chromebook with a touchscreen, it’s now even easier to type what you want with a newly redesigned virtual keyboard⁠. With just a tap on the new header bar, you can switch between languages, pull up the emoji library, or access the handwriting tool. The virtual keyboard also processes fast typing even faster—no need to slow yourself down.

ChromeOS Camera App

Manage your documents digitally. Now you can create multi-page PDFs using the document scanning function in the ChromeOS Camera App⁠.

FileApps trash

Previously, deleting a file from “My files” would instantly and permanently delete it. Now, it will go to a new “Trash” section. You’ll have 30 days to change your mind before it’s permanently deleted. Note: This new feature doesn’t support Play, Linux, or Windows file locations.
