If you’re a GSuite admin in charge of managing a fleet of Chrome devices, keeping track of and updating Chromebook settings and metadata can be a time-consuming task, to say the least. Thankfully, the GSuite Marketplace offers a variety of tools to assist you in your efforts.
There are multiple different channels that apps find themselves making their way onto your Chrome OS device. At one time it was via the Chrome Web Store. In that store, you can find dedicated Chrome OS apps alongside Extensions that expand the usability of Chrome. Now that Android has come on the scene, this section of the site will expand incredibly.
If you aren’t aware, Chrome is rolling out dark mode across all versions and operating systems since everyone is seemingly over-the-moon about the idea of all things in black and gray. For me, it is all a bit hit-or-miss, coming in handy when browsing in low light and being a bit odd when viewing content […]
Let me put this out there right from the start: I’ve only played Roblox a handful of times when my daughter begs me enough to jump in and play a silly game with her. I have an account and I participate from time to time, but I am by no means a real Roblox player […]
At long last, the day has finally arrived that so many Amazon Prime users will be able to cast to their Chromecast and Cast-enabled devices. In a major win for consumers, the Amazon Prime Video app just received an update and users should soon be greeted with the notification screen seen below. (Sans Daniel Tiger […]
Just over a week ago, we reported that Linux apps in the Dev Channel simply stopped working. We’ve never been made aware of what the issue was, but in general in the Dev Channel you could get Linux to install, but then the entire container would simply stop responding at all.
When it comes to gaming, Chromebooks are simply never in the conversation. Without an OS that is targeted for big title games and hardware that isn’t built for high-end gaming, Chromebooks just aren’t the choice for anyone if gaming is a big part of the reason for purchase. While Android gaming brought about a much […]
As we do around Chrome Unboxed, we have tons of devices hanging out in just about every channel at any given moment. A handful on Stable, a couple in Beta, quite a few in the Dev Channel, and usually Gabriel’s device in Canary help us stay abreast of the new changes and fun surprises coming […]
It’s easy to forget that the entire effort of bringing Linux apps to Chromebooks is just over a year old. The whole process has caught on and progressed so quickly that it is easy to get impatient for new features and needed abilities to arrive. Two big things still needed for Linux on Chrome OS […]
For those of us that hang around in the Beta, Dev and Canary Channels of Chrome OS on a regular basis, we’re pretty accustomed to bugs and issues. It is part of the territory when you live on the bleeding edge of technology, and as you climb the ladder of Chrome releases, the OS becomes […]
Just last week we broke the news that Droplet Computing was back on the scene, delivering the promise of legacy Windows applications running right on your Chromebook. In that piece, we spoke about things that CTO Peter von Oven showed us over a video call, but today I’m here to talk about what it is […]
Duo – the yin to Allo’s failed yang in Google’s messaging strategy from a few years ago – has not only amassed a wide audience of users over the past couple years; it has also managed to keep them around. Apple’s iMessage and Facetime still dominate the US landscape and Allo failed to the point […]
It has been quite some time since we last talked about Droplet Computing, so you’d be forgiven if you didn’t have any idea what that title even means. Droplet is a company we stumbled across nearly two years ago that was promising a container-based software solution for any OS that we’d not seen before. The […]
