Google is working to make Chrome OS a legitimate gaming platform for users (especially students) to enjoy high-end games on Chromebooks. Earlier this year, we saw a tech giant enable full-fledged RGB backlight support for Chrome OS keyboards. And recently, the company announced Steam for Chrome OS. Google is now enabling support for Chromebook variable refresh rate (VRR) displays to help users improve their gaming experience on supported devices.
Chrome OS supports variable refresh rate (VRR) displays
This feature was recently discovered About Chromebook It is currently deployed on Chrome OS 101 DevChannel. So if you want to try this feature, Must be a member of Chrome OS Dev Channel Enable flags – chrome: // flags # enable-variable-refresh-rate..
For those who don’t know, this feature is also available on various smartphones such as Windows PCs, Samsung Galaxy S22 series, and even some smart TVs.
Currently, enabling the flag turns on this new Chrome OS feature, but you need compatible hardware to take advantage of it.And this is noteworthy Not many Chromebooks have a variable refresh rate display available This is because it does not come with features.
Still, reports show that users can enable this feature on external displays that support variable refresh rates, giving Chromebook users a chance to give it a try. Therefore, it makes more sense in the future if Chromebook makers offer devices with variable refresh rate displays to support this feature.
VRR displays enable smooth display and a smooth gaming experience, eliminating screen problems such as screen tearing (where multiple frame visuals are displayed in one), shutters, and more. However, supporting variable refresh rates does not improve the content viewing experience on existing Chromebooks. However, newer models with VRR displays may improve display performance.
That said, it’s another step towards making Chrome OS a game-focused platform rather than a productivity platform, and we expect to reach it all soon. What do you think about VRR support in Chrome OS? Please let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
