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 […]
It has been three weeks and some change since developers released Chrome OS 68 to the public. Following a major hiccup, a rollback of the update server and a second iteration of the Stable release, Chromebook users on version 67 can finally join the rest of us on the newest release. I woke up to […]
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 […]
Two years ago at IFA Berlin, Acer announced the Chromebook R13 that unfortunately was quickly overshadowed by the release of the ASUS C302 and Samsung Chromebooks Plus and Pro. Since that time, the annual tech conference hasn’t seen much action on the Chrome OS front. This year is a completely different story.
A Chromebook equipped with a fingerprint sensor has been a long time coming. As far back as September of 2016, we’ve tracked multiple devices that have added support for the biometric capability but it wasn’t until October of 2017 that we really expected to see this feature on a device. Much to our dismay, the […]
Today, we bid farewell to a legend The Cr-48 may have been the Chromebook that started it all but the OG 2013 Chromebook Pixel ushered in a new era of premium devices by marrying Google’s lightweight Chrome operating system with some of the best hardware available at that time. …the best in hardware, software and […]
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.
Two weeks ago, the Chrome OS team pulled the trigger on the update to version 68 of our favorite operating system but alas, all was not well. In the days following, most users were able to receive the update but a nasty bug promted the team of developers to halt the release due some pretty […]
