Finally, Google Chrome is officially adding native support for media keys in the updated Chrome 73 version, it will allow users have total control of music and videos playing in their browser directly from the users’ keyboards, via ZDNet.
There are several applications that allow users to get the same kind of function, but this new update bakes it directly into Chrome. Chrome browser will now support play/pause, stop, start, forward, back, mute, volume up and volume down functions with the update. It will equally work when Chrome runs in the background, this would be helpful for people who prefer to use YouTube playlists as their choice of music player.
Google Chrome 73 would be officially launched next month for macOS, Chrome OS, and Windows, with a Linux version of it coming in later.
