    Chrome 73 to support your keyboards multimedia keys on Windows 10


    Google has been planning to update its Chrome browser to support keyboards multimedia keys which could be a real timesaver when you need to control your music and videos. In a future release of Chrome, users will be allowed to use their keyboard to pause, resume, seek forwards/backwards, change track and more.

    At the moment, if you play a YouTube video in Chrome and use the multimedia keys on your keyboard to pause, resume or seek forwards/backwards, the browser does not respect the key presses.

    With Google Chrome 73, the browser will support the multimedia keys you’ve got on your keyboard and it should work on any supported version of Windows, macOS or Chrome OS.

    It also appears that Chrome will respect the keyboard commands even when you switch to any other apps. For instance, if you play a YouTube video in Chrome and minimize the browser to the taskbar, you can hit pause, seek forward/backward button on your keyboard and Chrome will respond in kind.

    Even if Chrome is buried in one of those apps you’ve opened and forgotten about, the browser will still respect the multimedia key presses. If your desktop or laptop’s keyboard comes with full-fledged multimedia keys, you’ll be also able to skip forwards and backwards through playlists.

    The feature is quite useful if you have to quickly stop a YouTube video or Spotify web music.

    Most of the modern desktop or laptop keyboards support multimedia keys and you may find the multimedia hotkeys where the function keys are located. Chrome 73 will support play, pause, seek backward, seek forward, previous track and next track commands.

    Google will also developers to use Media Session API and customize how their sites respond to multimedia keys.

    Google Chrome 73 is expected to launch next month with support for multimedia keys and several other improvements including improved picture-in-picture mode.

    Multimedia keys on keyboard stop working suddenly...


    Hi guys,

    I am experiencing an annoying issue with Windows 10 and my Cherry keyboard (Cherry eVolution Stream Multimedia Keyboard G85-23000), especially with the multimedia keys.

    Upon a boot / reboot all the multimedia keys are working without issues: mute, volume up/down, etc.
    However sometimes it stops working completely (completely random). I have no idea what is causing it or how to solve it.

    When they stop working I cannot get them back working at all anymore, other then rebooting my PC. Obviously this is not a solution, because I have to close everything I was working on.

    While typing this, I tried to unplug and plug back in the keyboard. Apparently that solves it also. Though this is not a good solution, because the backside of my PC is not easily reached.

    Cherry keyboard don't have drivers available, so that's not a solution. Also removing the HID keyboard thing from hardware devices and reinstall / refresh doesn't provide a solution.

    Anyone else experiencing this? Or has a solution for this problem? Would be great, because I am very used to using the multimedia keys (especially the volume keys).

    I am using the Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview version. Version 1511 (build 14257.1000).
    Maybe it's an issue with the insider version, or something else. Or my hardware combination... I have no clue...

    Thanks in advance.
