Google’s ChromeOS has been getting extremely popular for the last few years. With the growing popularity of Chromebooks, one might own multiple ChromeOS devices, such as one for home and another one for work. For those people, Google is introducing a feature called ‘floating workspace’ to ChromeOS.
If you rely on multiple ChromeOS devices for your work then this feature will make your workflow way easier. With the Floating Workspace feature google will sync your windows, apps, and tabs that are open between every ChromeOS device you have.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re at home or at work you will be able to start from the exact state in which you left them, eliminating the need to set up your workspace from scratch each time you change devices. It ensures that the preferred setup is always available, allowing you to resume your tasks.
But as always you will be able to disable the Floating Workspace feature if you use your devices for multiple purposes like entertainment and work. In that case restoring tabs from a previous device won’t be useful. As Floating Workspace becomes available to a wider audience, it will enhance the user experiences of the ChromeOS ecosystem.
This Floating Workspace feature first appeared in January 2020 as a demo code for chromium. But if you want to try it, it’s now available on ChromeOS Canary. In order to enable this feature, you have to enable the following feature flag:
Please be aware before you consider ChromeOS Canary as it is unstable due to its being on the latest Chromium code. You might face potential issues.
