Let’s check out on what’s new in this new Chrome v57.
Improved Media Notifications:
While playing audio and video, the controls were pretty basic, but now with the support for Media Session API, developers will now be able to make use of additional media notification controls as well which makes this more attractive than ever. This Media Session API has been bought from Android Developer community which provides more flexibility and customization options. This is importantly beneficial for HTML 5 Audio notifications and also can be extended to the Android Wear devices as well which is awesome.

Full Screen Media Orientation helps when tapped on full screen button of Video, the orientation is changes to match to that of Video orientation to match the behavior of YouTube App which android uses. Progressive Web apps will now have better improvements and will be enabled in coming versions to come.
