It has been almost a year to the day since we reported on the mysterious device codenamed ‘Bison’ that would bring us the equally cryptic operating system, Andromeda. Along with ‘Bison’ we heard a number of rumors that Huawei was actively working on a new Nexus tablet that would be carrying the Andromeda operating system as […]

Early last fall, about a month out from Google’s hardware event in early October, some rumors began swirling around a unified OS Google was working on. Andromeda Rumors turned into psuedo-facts, code leaks, and a purposed 2016 release of a device that would drive the entire effort. Only, none of that ever happened. As the […]
It’s been quite some time since we’ve mentioned this subject here at Chrome Unboxed. Just in case you missed it, you can find Robby’s detailed argument about this phantom operating system here. To sum up, Andromeda is(or more accurately is rumored to be) a secret OS that Google has been developing that would essentially “fold […]
A few months ago, there was a massive amount of news surrounding the oft-assumed merger of Chrome OS and Android into a new OS called Andromeda. While we wrote extensively that we saw no real reason for this merger, rumors persist from time to time. So do statements straight from Google SVPs, like Hiroshi Lockheimer. […]
As far as rumors go, Andromeda was a pretty good one. Spurred on by the cryptic tweet a few weeks before Google’s big event, it became something of an overnight sensation. Hell, even my 13 year old nephew had heard about it, and he’s not even a techie.

When something that consumers have been dreaming and hoping for shows any sign of happening, it is a pretty standard thing for all of us to make quick jumps to conclusions.

Just reported over at Android Police, there are rumors flying that not only is Google planning a fully separate OS codenamed Andromeda, but there is also a Pixel 3 that will be launched to show it off. This event sure is bringing the hype, isn’t it?
It all started with a tweet. Well, to be fair, this has been whispered and rumored for some time now. The sudden popularity of Andromeda on the web is a clear sign that people want a singular, focused direction from Google. They want convergence. We just aren’t convinced it is what many are thinking.
We’ve talked a lot lately about Linux apps on Chrome OS and the plausibility that Chromebooks could eventually be able to run resource-hungry applications such as full-fledged video editors like Davinci Resolve. Now, we’re still a little ways out from that becoming a reality but if and when Crostini can leverage a dGPU or external […]
As long as we’ve been covering Chromebooks, Chromeboxes, and all the other hardware Google drops Chrome OS onto, there’s been a running theme or two that have followed the not-quite-fledgling operating system: “it’s just a browser” and “Chrome OS is Dead.” Looking at the current landscape of Chrome OS and Chromebooks both available and coming […]
