Google Chrome to support multimedia buttons on your keyboard
California, February 9 : With the roll out of the Chrome 73, you will be finally able to make good use of the multimedia buttons on your keyboard.
In the initial phase, multimedia key support will be available for Chrome on Chrome OS, macOS, and Windows. It will allow one to control audio and video content in Chrome, including skipping through the playlists.
The support will be provided at the Chrome level which essentially means, multimedia buttons will work regardless if Chrome browser is in the foreground or background. It will also ship with the Media Session API allowing developers to control media playback in the browser and also customise interactions for multimedia keys.
