Google Chrome OS beta users are said to soon be able to test out a huge new feature. The Chrome Launcher 2.0 is said to come in the latest beta version, which looks more like a new tab on the Chrome browser than a platform.

The Chrome Launcher 2.0 is said to come integrated with Google Now which is able to show you the scheduled appointments, flights, reminders and other task cards. Since it is a launcher, it does have access to an app list, should you require it.

Besides the new launcher, the latest beta is said to come with an update that would update the OS timezone while travelling. Another feature that users should look forward to is the ability to unzip password-protected files.

The Material Design is making its way in the Chrome OS with the new update, but only for the File icon. Still, it is a start and Google is bound to add more in the following updates. Users who would like to test out these new features can migrate to the beta channel from the Settings page and wait for the update to be released next week.
