Additionally, we can expect the ChromeOS to get a new “portrait relighting” effect, which will enhance the user’s video calling experience. A similar feature is built into Google Camera on Pixel phones. Besides, the tech giant is also testing an “AUTO Framing” feature to be released later as part of its broader plan.
Furthermore, a few other code changes spotted by the website suggest that the ChromeOS may also monitor your calls to show warnings in case your network is unstable or to send other important alerts. As for the launch, it might take a few months for these new ChromeOS features to finally arrive on Chromebooks.
