Better integration of hardwareBack
At the CES 2022 technology fair, Google showed a number of new products in the context of "Better Together", or better cooperation between different hardware devices. Examples include Fast Pair on Chromebooks and Near Share for Windows. By using these tools, data can be exchanged and shared more easily between different devices, such as laptop and telephone or between telephones.
Now these new tools are slowly becoming available to the general public. For example, Google is releasing the 'Cross-Device Services' in the Play Store this week. These new services enable streaming of Chromebook apps. For example, at CES 2022, Google showed how you can access any chat app on your Android phone using your Chromebook. For example, with the new Services app you can reply to a message or edit your shopping list on your phone from your Chromebook, without having to pick up your phone.
You can even browse the overview 'Apps from your phone' via the Cross-Device Services and then start the apps on your laptop from there. For example, it is possible to start and edit Google Calendar on your phone via streaming, with the app visible as a floating window that indicates from which device the calendar comes. The app can be installed on all Android devices, but Android 13 is required
