Changelog Chrome OS Beta update to 83.0.4103.50

Here is the complete Changelog of the latest Chrome OS beta channel version 83.0.4103.50.


  • Prevent RTCVideoDecodeAdapter from being destroyed while the callback is posting.
  • EagerCacheStorageSetupForServiceWorkers the feature is disabled due to a regression that prevented websites from loading correctly when attempting to reload immediately after registering a new service worker with a fetch handler that uses cache_storage.
  • Fixed a bug with WebRTC that causes a crash when adding the same frame twice in a transformer.
  • Backported patch that makes percentage-sized SVG documents zoom. Previously, they would appear unchanged under zoom because the percentage of the viewport remained the same, making zooming feel “broken.”
  • Partial fix to a bug that causes Cache API to delete cached files.

Demo Mode

  • Google Play store will be disabled if the Chromebook was enrolled offline.

Family Link

  • Chromebooks with Family link managed accounts will now be able to add a secondary school account by default, no flag adjustments are needed.
  • Separated Android Chrome’s time limit from Chrome OS Chrome. Previously, Android chrome’s time limit was used to set the time limit for Chrome OS Chrome. New commit disables the web time limit feature flag.

File Manager

  • Fixed “Open” button text colour for the old file manager (not file-ng).


  • Revert patch that caused incorrect app names to get synced when the sync page doesn’t load correctly.

Safe Browsing

  • Deep scanning features (Malware scanning and Content Compliance) are enabled by default.


  • Fixed a bug that caused the permission bubble to move to the right side of the omnibox instead of the left where the lock icon is.

Web Payments

  • Abort app installations when closing the Incognito window.
