Earlier this month, Chrome OS added Bluetooth battery levels to let Chromebook users see the remaining battery levels of their connected Bluetooth devices. But now, if you have a Chromebook with a stylus and have one connected, you could soon see stylus battery level too.
According to a report from ChromeStory, a new flag has appeared in the Chrome OS code that hints the Chromebook will soon display stylus battery level. Notably, it will be available in the stylus tools menu.
Stylus Battery Level Features, Availability
Recently, a new flag was added to the Chromium OS code, which wrote, “Show stylus battery stylus in the stylus tools menu: Enables viewing the current stylus battery level in the stylus tools menu.”
Currently, there are not many details about the upcoming feature and what type of stylus will it support. We expect to see those soon when this feature releases in the Canary channel of Chrome OS. You can see the flag that appeared in the Chrome OS code in the image above.
Also, the feature bug associated with this change is not yet public. However, the new flag for this feature has an expiry milestone set to version 91 of Chrome OS, said ChromeStory in its report. We hope that the feature releases on or before Chrome OS 91. Quite recently, Google also added a Trash folder to the Chrome OS Files app.
