Google is working on adding system sounds to Chromebooks. With this essential feature, your Chromebook will make tiny noises when you connect it to a charger or when the battery is low.
System Sounds for Chromebooks
According to a new Chromium Gerrit code change, I spotted today, Google is adding system sounds to Chromebooks. This will add audio notifications for low battery and ‘charger connected’.
Here is the experimental flag from the Chromium Gerrit:
Power Sounds: Enable device charging and low battery warning sounds.
We have seen similar efforts by Google in the past. However, Chrome OS is increasingly looking like a real operating system now and I hope to see this feature go beyond a mere experiment this time.
The code change is yet to reach the Canary channel of Chrome OS. Stay tuned to Chrome Story and subscribe to the YouTube channel to see a demo of this new feature when ready.
