CHROME TO USE MUL­TI­ME­DIA BUT­TONS

The Asian Age - - Technomics -

New Delhi, Feb. 10: With the roll out of the Chrome 73, you will be fi­nally able to make good use of the mul­ti­me­dia but­tons on your key­board.

The Google Chrome 73 ver­sion is sched­uled to re­lease in the com­ing month. As ZDNet re­ports, it will be the first ver­sion of the pop­u­lar browser to of­fi­cially sup­port mul­ti­me­dia keys that some com­put­ers and lap­top come built- in with.

In the ini­tial phase, mul­ti­me­dia key sup­port will be avail­able for Chrome on Chrome OS, macOS, and Win­dows. It will al­low one to con­trol au­dio and video con­tent in Chrome, in­clud­ing skip­ping through the playlists.

The sup­port will be pro­vided at the Chrome level which es­sen­tially means, mul­ti­me­dia but­tons will work re­gard­less if Chrome browser is in the fore­ground or back­ground. It will also ship with the Me­dia Ses­sion API al­low­ing de­vel­op­ers to con­trol me­dia play­back in the browser and also cus­tomise in­ter­ac­tions for mul­ti­me­dia keys.
