Multi-room audio is nothing new, especially if you are a seasoned Chromecast user. All around our office we have Chromecasts and Cast-enabled speakers and each is assigned to various speaker groups to fit whatever audio needs that may arise. It’s a great feature and likely underused by most consumers and until recently, not available on […]
Google Assistant has become the central focus for Google ever since their event in October of 2016. With the roll-out in full swing to many devices across multiple categories, Google Assistant is becoming extremely pervasive. The flagship device for Google Assistant, Google Home, is also powered by a varied version of Chrome OS. As we watch Assistant fully integrate into Chrome OS, we realize the Assitant story is just beginning.
The big day is here and we’ve got a list a mile long to save you some serious dollars on your favorite Chrome OS devices, Chromecasts and more. As in recent years, most retailers are offering the same discounts on most Google-related products so I’ll save you my usual long-windedness and dive right in with […]
Admittedly, I had all but forgotten that LG was one of Google’s Smart Display partners showcased at CES nearly a year ago. Since then, Lenovo and JBL have both brought their models to the market and are offering some pretty sweet discounts for the Black Friday shopping week. For months, the LG WK9 has been […]
The Google Store is getting in on the early Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, sending out an email announcement that includes dates and deals on tons of stuff in their inventory.

Google’s lineup of Home products are awesome and continues to expand with more devices like the Home Hub that debuted in New York last month. We have Google Home devices everywhere around the home and the office and we love them. While the core functions are all similar, our favorite Home speaker is hands-down the […]
While we’re still technically two weeks away from the Black Friday madness, it looks like some stores are getting into the game even earlier this year by offering “Black Friday Deals” before the actual date gets here.
The Developer channel of Chrome OS was recently updated to version 72 and with it comes a long-awaited feature for those of you who don’t own a Pixelbook. The Google Assistant has been in the works on Chrome OS for well over a year but up unto this point, the voice assistant is exclusive to […]
We see things like this a lot, right? A nice little hardware hook to sell you on a service or bit of software. We even see hardware bundles from time to time that throw in little perks here and there to get you to bite. This latest effort from Spotify is not really any different, […]
Let’s be honest, Roku has been the best TV box you can buy for a long time. With support for nearly anything you can imagine streaming, Roku players have been easy recommendations for me to make to less tech-savvy friends and family. Need Amazon support? Got it. Google Play Movies? Yep. Netflix? Please. YouTube TV […]
It has been just shy of two years since Robby waxed philosophic about Google’s Assistant coming to Chrome OS. Twenty-three months and a ton of puzzle pieces later, we finally have our first look at the Assistant live on a Chromebook that isn’t a Pixelbook.
The latest update to the highly experimental Canary channel of Chrome OS has brought with it some very exciting news for Pixelbook owners and in turn, Chromebooks users in general. Since making its way to the Stable channel, Android on Chrome OS has remained on the aging 7.1.1 version of the mobile OS framework. As […]
