It’s now easier to take handwritten notes on your Chromebook

School may be winding down, but that’s not stopping Google from doing Chromebooks more useful as note-taking tools. The company is rolling out a Chrome OS M102 version that makes the previously limited version cursive app available on any Chromebook with pen support. The software helps you create, organize, and share handwritten notes, in some cases with shortcuts that save you from using keyboards or fingers.

You can write or draw, as you’d expect, but you can also use your stylus to move content just by circling it, or erase it by scribbling over it. You can even create extra space by drawing a horizontal line. Cursive also lets you paste images, collect material into notebooks, and share notes by copying or saving them as PDFs.

M102 is also an important update if you are using a Chromebook with Thunderbolt or USB 4 ports. Chrome OS on systems with 11th or 12th Gen Core processors is now smart enough to recognize if the USB-C cable you’re using can’t support a display or isn’t what your laptop can handle. You may not have to wonder why a device is not working properly.

If you need magnification, the upgrade allows you to resize the magnified part. You can see magnified content better or keep the area small when you just want to take a closer look at small images or text.

Cursive will be pre-installed on all compatible Chromebooks as part of the update, but you can install it manually using the previous link. It’s safe to say that the update makes stylus-equipped Chromebooks much more useful – you can jot down class and meeting notes knowing they’ll be tidy and easy to access.
