Tab search, Bluetooth battery level in settings and quick settings, and new wallpaper options are three key features Google brings to the Chrome OS 87 update.

‘Tab Search’ allowing users to find opened tabs with ease while using the chromium-based web browser. Users have a habit of opening several tabs into the browser and to navigate over these tabs simply click the drop-down menu button in the top right corner of the browser and start searching.
