Many people have been using the new Chrome OS app launcher menu for a while now. You can do this by simply enabling a Chrome OS flag. However, if you’ve been waiting for the app launcher to be available as standard. Then you will have to wait a little longer because it has not been released as part of the Chrome OS 100 update.
The new app launcher menu is one of the biggest changes to how you access apps in a long time. I’ve been using it a lot on my Chromebox and absolutely love it. Whenever I use one of my Chromebooks, which uses the older style menu I feel a little lost.
If you were expecting to get the new app launcher menu with the Chrome OS 100 update. Then you don’t need to worry. Because you can still get access to it by enabling a flag. Chrome OS flags are easy to enable and you do not need to leave the stable channel to use them.
