Google is adding a shortcut customization app to Chrome OS. According to a new experimental flag, this app lets you customize system shortcuts.
Shortcut System Web App
You might have noticed Chrome OS moving different parts of settings and the operating system to System Web Apps or SWAs. The new shortcut customization app will be another SWA in Chrome OS.
We do not have more information on this change yet. However, you can find a few more code change requests for the shortcuts SWA here on the Chromium Gerrit website.
My best guess is that we will find the Device > Keyboard section of Chrome OS settings in this new SWA.
Here is the new Chrome OS flag to enable this SWA:
Enable shortcut customization app: Enable the shortcut customization SWA, allowing users to customize system shortcuts.
Do you have a different theory? Let me know in the comments section below.
