How to Enable Startup Chime on Chromebook.
A steep start signal feels more natural. But by default, there is no trigger signal in Chrome OS. Fortunately, there is an option to enable them on your Chromebook. Here’s how to do it.
Enable Start-up Chime from the settings
We have the option to enable the startup beep for Chromebook in the setup itself. To turn on the startup sound, click the clock in the lower right corner and click the settings icon.
Now click on “Advanced” on the left sidebar, scroll down to the bottom of the settings page and select the “Manage Accessibility Features” option.
Now scroll down to the very bottom again to find the Play Sound on Startup option and activate it. That’s it, you can now restart your Chromebook to see the startup beep.
This is just a beep, and if you are not happy with the original beep you are receiving, you can check the alternatives.
Chime initiation using extension
To get various sound options, open the Chrome Web Store, search for “launch sound for Chromebook” and select the extension from BrowserNative. Alternatively, you can also follow this link. Now click the Add to Chrome button and click the Add Extension button in the pop-up window to install the extension in Chrome.
Once installed, you will be redirected to a thank you window and the default startup sound will be the Ubuntu startup sound. But you can change this by going to the startup sound extension settings. To open the extension’s settings, click the extension’s icon in the upper right corner.
Now click the three-dot menu next to the startup sound extension. Now select “Options” from the menu that appears.
Now you can choose your startup sound between 6 different sounds like Ubuntu, WindowsXP, Windows 3.1, macOS, Windows 98, Windows Me. If you’ve used Windows or Mac before, you can choose these options for nostalgia. Anyway, you can listen to sounds right here by clicking the play button after selecting a sound.
Once selected, click “Save” and restart your device. One caveat: you hear a beep when you log in, not on the lock screen. Be that as it may, the sound seems natural and out of place.
