While Google’s annual developer event is just weeks away, you don’t need to wait for it to see what’s new in Chrome and Chrome OS. New features have recently cropped up in early test versions that solidify Google’s overall Chrome strategy.

The annual Google I/O developer event is weeks away and I expect we’ll see many new improvements in Chrome and Chrome OS. Some of them can already been seen now if you know where to look. If you have Google’s experimental browser version, Chrome Canary, you can open native files with Chrome apps on a Mac, for example. And the Chrome OS developer channel has a new “Paste to Folder” feature in the Files app. The Chromium OS team is also working on a way to remotely erase, lock or locate a lost Chrome OS device.

On this week’s Chrome Show podcast, we talk more about these upcoming improvements and how they fit it to Google’s overall Chrome strategy that we outlined at this time last year. We also share more detailed thoughts on the Dell Chromebook 11 and share some first impression’s the new 1080p Chromebook 2 that we found online. Tune in below or download the show here for this week’s podcast.
