If listening to tunes on your Chromebook is a daily activity, you’ll be happy to know that the process just became more refined. Thanks to a recent Chrome OS dev update, owners of Google’s internet-fueled notebooks can now control the volume of their music by using the device’s arrow keys. It’s a modest addition for sure, but it’ll most likely make life a little easier for people who struggle with their Chromebook’s trackpad.

Here’s an overview of the keyboard shortcuts for this new feature :

  • Press <Up> to increase the volume of 1
  • Press <Down> to decrease the volume of 1
  • Press <Alt> + <Up> to increase the volume of 10
  • Press <Alt> + <Down> to decrease the volume of 10

Since you’ll probably be queueing up new playlists this weekend, allow us to make a suggestion. Nas’ “The World is Yours” is currently free from the Play Store. You’re welcome.

    I’m more interested in the music app/extension next to the volume control. Is that part of the dev build or is that a web app?
