ChromeOS 104 expands customization options with light and dark modes, wallpapers from Google Photos, and more.

ChromeOS 104 is Google’s new operating system for Chromebooks… and for those who need it, thanks to ChromeOS Flex. If this is your case, pay attention, because exciting news is coming.

ChromeOS 104 follows Chrome 104, and this browser-based operating system and the Internet giant’s services share the same version numbering, in addition to getting all the changes implemented in the browser. So, when it comes to Chrome, everything is said.

However, for ChromeOS, there are some exclusive new system features that users will surely enjoy because they mainly provide improvements on different fronts and more customization options, which is perhaps the most outstanding point of this release.

So ChromeOS 104 is finally releasing support for light and dark desktop modes. No, not exactly what it was. The novelty is now a polished combination, allowing you to enjoy the desktop with one click or, if you prefer, without it, delegating system automation.

Or, equivalently, you can manually switch from light theme to dark theme whenever you want, or you can set automatic switching: day, light theme, night, dark theme. the difference with the previous mode is that it will take the accent color according to the prevailing one on the wallpaper.

ChromeOS 104 introduces light and dark themes

Speaking of wallpapers, with ChromeOS 104 you can use your Google Photos images as your desktop background or as a screensaver slideshow, with a choice of images that fit the new chiaroscuro dichotomy.

Of those that Google is promoting, this is not all there is, but all there is, talking now about the  novelties of ChromeOS 104 , including customization, as well as others of a more practical nature that will be rolled out over the next few weeks, so get some patience.

For example, a revamped gallery app that introduces PDF viewing and editing features; a new drop-down calendar in the system tray with a clock, in the style of any self-respecting desktop and, of course, integrated with Google Calendar.

Later, a new image and video editor, a screencast app, and a handwritten note-taking app are expected along with other new features.
