Google rolled out a new update to its Chrome OS. The new update makes the Chromebook tablet mode more accessible. All 2-in-1 devices can be used as a tablet as well as a laptop. Currently to access the tablet mode you either need to remove the keyboard or fold the laptop along with hinges.

But with new updates, users can access the tablet mode with new built-in gestures.

Just swipe up from the bottom of the screen to get the tablet mode

In addition to those gestures, Google also expanded the picture-in-picture service to more apps. The feature now supports Google Play apps on Chromebook. It means you can watch YouTube as well as do other tasks. With Strip tabs in tablet mode, you can reorder tabs by dragging and close them by swiping up.
