Read Full Changes by Chrome OS 70 rolling out w/ completely redesigned tablet UI, floating Gboard, more | 9to5google
The first big change in Chrome OS 70 on touchscreen Chromebooks and convertibles, like the Pixelbook, is to the app shelf of pinned and active software. Styled like a Google Material Theme sheet with rounded corners, it is taller and allows for larger app icons that are now centered with a new horizontal open indicator underneath.

The control panel to the right has been massively revamped.

Elsewhere, a Gboard-based virtual keyboard is now available on Chrome OS with a floating keyboard option that is not docked to the bottom of the screen.

The Camera app has been updated with a refreshed UI, with captured photos and videos now stored in the Downloads folder for the Files app.

Beginning with this version, right-clicking on a Chrome Extension reveals new options to determine when add-ons are permitted to run.

AV1 is an open, industry-backed codec for more efficient and better quality video streaming. Video compression sees a 30% improvement compared to the current VP9 standard. Chrome 70 adds only an AV1 decoder to Chrome OS, macOS, Windows, and Linux, with encoding capabilities not yet included.
