In the realm of detachable Chromebooks, there are few at this point. Two, specifically, and we’ve been asked time and again to pit them against one another to determine which is the best purchase. Between the Pixel Slate and the HP x2, there are lots of similarities and just as many differences. While it isn’t […]
We talk about a ton of stuff here at Chrome Unboxed. From Chromebooks to Chromecast to Google Assistant, the world of Chrome OS is pretty far-reaching. We save our News section for the things that are breaking news to our readers.
When you buy a smart speaker or smart display, listening to music is one of the primary uses, right? There are tons of services out there already that offer a bit of playback for free, and to be fair, they already work just fine with the family of Google Assistant speakers.
If you’re like many, you may use an external keyboard for your Chrome device. While there are plenty of third-party options out there that work just fine with Chrome OS, the ability to remap certainly is a must-have for many users. For the most part, keyboards like my Logitech k360 is the perfect companion for […]
If you’ve been a Chrome user on any platform for any amount of time, you know how quickly those Chrome Extensions can start to add up in the space to the right of your URL bar, slowly but surely encroaching on your URL bar’s horizontal real estate.

Last week, Disney announced their much-anticipated streaming service in Disney+. While the name isn’t the best or most creative thing in the world, make no mistake: this will be a content service to be reckoned with. When you think about the vast properties under the Disney umbrella, it becomes apparent very quickly that tons of […]
As it currently stands, there are limited ways to call on the Google Assistant. With your voice or click of a button, you can pull up the Assistant on lots of different hardware. Google has even been seen working to bring the Assistant to Chrome on all platforms, so that would further increase the places […]
It’s been six months since Samsung unveiled the surprising update to the popular Chromebook Plus in what we now know as the Chromebook Plus V2. At first, it only shipped in a Celeron version, but it wasn’t long before a proper Core m3 version became available to truly give this successor a leg up on […]
Last week, we saw Acer unveil the first Chromebook to ever equip a numeric keypad (and only the second to implement a fingerprint scanner). While we anticipated more devices to come with the productivity-focused keyboard, it was quite a surprise when HP announced their own 15.6″ device a mere week later. So, without further ado, […]
This is truly worth a bit of celebration! With Google and Amazon fighting like children for years over streaming services and hardware, we are finally at the end of the longstanding dispute and are getting not one, but two major shifts in the Google/Amazon video delivery services.
In the history of Chromebook devices since the original Samsung Chromebook Plus launched, there have been a few Chromebooks that leveraged a screen similar to what we see on the Pixelbook.
