All Chromebooks come with a camera or two, so Chrome OS is no stranger to handling camera inputs. While the camera software on Chrome OS is still a bit of a work in progress across the board, the general camera functions are there and have been there for quite some time. What we are currently […]
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.
When you buy a smart speaker or smart display, listening to music is one of the primary uses, right? There are tons of services out there already that offer a bit of playback for free, and to be fair, they already work just fine with the family of Google Assistant speakers.
If you’re like many, you may use an external keyboard for your Chrome device. While there are plenty of third-party options out there that work just fine with Chrome OS, the ability to remap certainly is a must-have for many users. For the most part, keyboards like my Logitech k360 is the perfect companion for […]
This is truly worth a bit of celebration! With Google and Amazon fighting like children for years over streaming services and hardware, we are finally at the end of the longstanding dispute and are getting not one, but two major shifts in the Google/Amazon video delivery services.
There’s a ton of action coming out of Google’s Cloud Next 2019 event. Though we’re currently in New York covering Acer’s Global Press event, there’s so much newness coming out of Google’s cloud-centric conference that we’re forced to pay attention there as well.
For users of YouTube TV, the lack of Discovery Channel’s squad of channels has been a bit of a black eye on the service since day one. Early on, the lack of Turner’s channels like TBS, TNT, and TruTV were also an issue for prospective subscribers, but Google and Turner made a deal pretty early […]
Google’s Cloud Platform has evolved immensely over the past decade and this year’s Cloud Next conference could potentially usher in a profusion of new features and possibly some never-before-seen products. Google will kick off the conference today with the Day 1 Keynote at 9 a.m. PDT and we want you to join us to chat […]
This entire week has been spent mourning the loss of Google+ and Inbox, two services Google chose to finally close the door on. I was a fan of both and, like other Google services that have died before them, I’ll spend a decent amount of time missing them. Of all the Google shut downs in […]
The demise of Inbox is being felt across the internet this week as both Google+ and Inbox were officially shut down as of April 2nd. This wasn’t a surprise to anyone, but the finality of Inbox officially being gone still hurts. For many users like myself, Inbox was simply a better way to handle and […]
For many users, Google’s Crostini project that brings native Linux apps support to Chrome OS is still a ways off from being a viable solution. We are seeing more and more updates that are giving Crostini the tools needed to forgo dual-booting a Linux distro but until full GPU support becomes a reality, Crouton is […]
Just last week Apple loosened its ecosystem death grip on Apple Music by allowing their app to finally work on Chromebooks. Apple Music has been around on Android for quite some time, but it hasn’t worked on Chromebooks up until this point. The nod to Chrome OS support is a firm sign that Apple is […]
Linux app support on Chrome OS – once thought of as a niche development – continues plowing forward with more hardware support and necessary features for the everyday scenarios general users would need to actually leverage it.
