Ever since Samsung surprised us with an update to the original Samsung Chromebook Plus, we’ve been speculating that we’ll also see a refresh of the original Pro before the end of the year. With the way new boards are leveraged for multiple OEM devices these days, pinpointing new devices from the Chromium Repositories isn’t quite […]
Sure, the landscape of Chrome OS tablets is pretty lonely for the moment. Acer’s Chromebook Tab 10 is the only completely-tablet option available right now, but devices like HP’s Chromebook x2 and the upcoming #madebyGoogle ‘Nocturne’ are both devices many users will interact with in tablet mode frequently.
A little over two weeks ago, Gabriel posted about the addition of the Google Assistant coming to the Chrome OS App Launcher. As Chromebooks all eagerly await the arrival of the Google Assistant (apart from the Pixelbook), we may be seeing the first sign of how it will get integrated across the board in Chrome […]
We’re coming up on a full year since Google unveiled the Pixelbook to the world. Well, Google wasn’t actually the first to show off the new Chromebook if you remember: it was actually a huge pre-October leak led by Droid Life on September 19th of 2017. Regardless, we’re not far from marking the anniversary of […]
This particular feature of Chrome OS has likely been around for quite some time. To be honest, I’m not sure how long users have had access to this option, but I’ve simply not known it was possible and I can’t believe I’ve not been using it this whole time! Just the other day I was […]
I’m not kidding, just yesterday Gabriel and I were discussing the painful absence of Dell in the consumer Chromebook market. With the two and a half year gap since their last mid/high range Chromebook (the beloved Dell Chromebook 13), we were beginning to wonder if Dell was simply done with consumer Chromebooks.
Mark this one down as an insane deal, folks. Though the workhorse known as the Acer C720 isn’t a fresh, new, sexy Chromebook, it gets around quite well even after all this time. We all need to remember, after all, that Chromebooks actually get faster with time.
Just yesterday Gabriel posted an article about 3 Chromebook devices being developed with AMD chipsets and how that entire segment of devices is progressing. The conversation around these upcoming AMD-powered devices always devolves into a pretty predictable question: what good is more GPU support on a Chromebook? As it turns out, the stars are aligning […]
Just a few days ago, we published an article and video highlighting the big, bold changes that are coming to Chrome OS in version 70. With the Developer Channel update, we’ve received what could be seen as the biggest single update in terms of feature set that Chrome OS has ever seen.
That title should tell you a ton about the contents of this article and video. It is crammed full of descriptive words and much longer than we generally make titles. For this article and video, however, it is absolutely fitting as the newest update to our favorite operating system is an absolutely massive one.
Reports started flying around the internet in the past couple days about Google seemingly confirming a whole group of Chromebooks that will not get Lixux apps. While these reports are mostly accurate, there are a few factors that must be considered when we look at the list of devices being left out of the Linux […]
If you didn’t already know, Android Messages is available on just about any device running Chrome, not just Chromebooks. The overall usability has been pretty great for me and I’d assume many of you out there are taking advantage of Android Messages on the web. For Chromebook users, the ability to set this to simply […]
