Now that we’re in November and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Google Pixel Slate, we’re beginning to see the emergence of pre-order options at multiple outlets. We’ve heard reports of users seeing a pre-order option on the Google Store, but we’ve yet to confirm if this is anything more than a slip-up or glitch.
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.
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 […]
Yes, I know that title is bold: especially in reference to two devices that aren’t even commercially available at this point.

All the way back in May of this year, we traveled up to New York to attend Acer’s hardware event and got to spend a little time with the Acer Chromebook Spin 13. The Spin 15 was also there along with the Acer Chromebook 13 (non-spin version).

Thanks to Best Buy, we’re fairly confident that Google’s Chrome OS tablet should land around the Black Friday shopping week but an FCC filing I dug up could point to an earlier date, […]
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, […]
Google was pretty late to the Podcast game, but when they showed up, they brought a pretty decent app and service with them. Google Podcasts is a simple, clean and functional podcast player that gets a lot right and then just gets out of the way. In our recent travels, being able to download a […]
Intel’s latest iteration of their 8th generation U-series processor has found its way to the Chromium repositories powering a new Chromebook codenamed ‘Sarien’. For those of you not familiar with Intel’s schizophrenic naming schemes, the Whiskey Lake processors are yet-another in the line of 14nm process chipsets built on the Skylake architecture. These chips are […]
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.

With the relatively quiet launch of the 3rd generation Chromecast, many of us were wondering what – if anything – is the advantage of buying a new Chromecast. While there’s a mysterious inclusion of a Bluetooth radio in this new Chromecast, it is still not clear why it is there.
Shortly after Chrome OS 70 began rolling out to the Stable channel, the Chrome OS team released version 71 to the Beta channel for some users.
