Chrome OS has just got a new experimental multiprofiles features using which users can sign-in and run multiple profiles simultaneously.
“People who have multiple profiles or users on their Chrome devices can now take advantage of the new experimental multiprofiles feature. This mode gives you the ability to run Chrome OS with multiples profiles at the same time”, announced François Beaufort in his Google+ post.
The feature is currently only available on the dev channel of the Chrome OS operating system. Using the feature, users will quickly be able to switch between different Google accounts without requiring to sign-out and signing-in again.
Users will be required to set the required flags by entering the following line in their dev channel Chrome OS Chrome browser: “chrome://flags/#enable-multi-profiles”.
Once done, users can click on their profile picture in the system tray and then select “sign in another account” and then choosing one of the profiles already registered on the device.
On top of the multiple profile support, the dev channel also brings with it support for moving windows to different profiles. “One nice thing, but still highly experimental, is that you can move windows to different profiles with a simple right click in the window top bar”, notes Beaufort.
