Last time, I put together an article about the changes I noticed in ChromeOS 121, but the content announced by Google is different, and includes some minor changes.

Three major changes

First, you can now use ChromeVox to control Android apps when streaming apps to your Chromebook. This lets you control streaming apps using ChromeOS' screen reader functionality.

Next, you can now enable voice input (dictation) using Launcher + D on your keyboard. When you enable it for the first time, a dialog box will appear telling you that you are about to enable voice input, that certain audio files may be downloaded, and how to change the voice input language. Additionally, it appears that it can also be used with the function keys of some Logitech keyboards.

Third, as of January 1, 2024, support for ChromeOS Flex certified devices, which was limited to 2023, has officially ended. Devices will continue to receive ChromeOS Flex updates, but will no longer be tested or maintained by the Flex team.
