Google I/O is swiftly approaching and in just two weeks from now, the event will be kicking off with a few keynotes, some hardware announcements, and some great sessions that will hopefully inform us all a bit about what Google is planning for the next 12 months or so from a software standpoint. Each year […]
Thanks to a post yesterday over at the official Google Developers Blog, we can feel quite certain that at least some of the ‘significant product updates and announcements’ Sundar Pichai referenced in the earnings call earlier this week will be Google Assistant and smart home related and will happen at the Day 2 Google I/O […]
In what simply feels like the latest public-facing event to hit the chopping block, Google’s largest and most important conference has officially been cancelled due to rising issues from the COVID-19 coronavirus. In the event you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know, COVID-19 is spreading now in the US, especially on the west […]
As long as we’ve been covering Chromebooks, Chromeboxes, and all the other hardware Google drops Chrome OS onto, there’s been a running theme or two that have followed the not-quite-fledgling operating system: “it’s just a browser” and “Chrome OS is Dead.” Looking at the current landscape of Chrome OS and Chromebooks both available and coming […]
We’ve been tracking virtual desktops for Chrome OS for months now. Since the first chatter about the feature coming soon to the four sneak peek videos already shown off in the Chromium Bug Tracker, we know quite a bit about what it will look like and how it will all work once the feature arrives.

Google I/O is, by it’s nature, a broad and vast conference covering massive amounts of information. When you step back and look at the numerous sessions, keynotes, chats, and sandboxes, it becomes almost overwhelming to try and parse all the data on offer into coherent thoughts.
This year’s Google I/O developer conference was chock full of awesome new goodies headed our way for Android, Google Assistant, Chrome OS and much more. Much of which, we will be covering over the next few days but don’t forget to tune in to the latest episode of The Chrome Cast for a quick roundup […]
Part of the primary Chrome OS session at Google I/O 2019 opened up with some interesting tidbits about the rising popularity of Chromebooks in an effort to continue enticing developers to consider and remember Chrome OS when developing their apps. It makes sense, right? If you want developers to target your platform, you need to […]
For some, the word Flutter doesn’t mean much. Flutter is, at a zoomed-out level, Google’s “portable UI toolkit for building beautiful, native applications for mobile, web, and desktop from a single codebase.” Up to this point, Flutter has been used primarily as a way for developers to build apps for both Android and iOS using […]
As Google I/O continues marching forward, we’re watching session after session to find nuggets of new features coming to Chrome and Chrome OS. One of those new features coming soon is a new way users will be notified when a PWA (progressive web app) is available from any given URL.
Last year, Google took the stage at I/O to encourage developers to create apps with Chromebooks and larger displays in mind. This year, the team in Mountain View is wooing the same developers to Chrome OS with even more native tools to be used on Chromebooks. Android Studio has technically been available for Linux-enabled Chromebooks […]

Another anticipated device debuted center stage in […]
