For the past year, much of the attention and focus around Chromebooks has been aimed at the addition of the Google Play Store and Android app compatibility. Rightfully so, this addition could eventually lead to Chromebooks with much more flexibility and power than they currently have. In the search for more and more capability and […]
While we’ve come a long way when it comes to the ability for Chromebooks to run Android apps, there are still some standard UI experiences customers expect. Especially when we talk about new consumers who’ve never used a Chromebook.
We’ve written quite a bit about the upcoming Pixelbook before it leaked, after it leaked, during the official announcement, afterward and will continue to cover it extensively for the foreseeable future.
