We’re currently working on gathering all the new goodies currently available in Chrome OS 70 in the Developer Channel. Since our last video on the subject, the developers have been VERY busy fixing issues and adding more features by the boatload. One feature in particular that we’ve talked about already – fingerprint scanner integration – […]
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.
Ever since Samsung surprised us with an update to the original Samsung Chromebook Plus, we’ve been speculating that we’ll also see a refresh of the original Pro before the end of the year. With the way new boards are leveraged for multiple OEM devices these days, pinpointing new devices from the Chromium Repositories isn’t quite […]
We’re anticipating some major upgrades when Chrome OS 70 hits sometime in early October but in the meantime, the Chrome team over at Google is giving desktop and mobile users a reason to join in on the browser’s 10th birthday. Saturday was the official anniversary of Chrome’s initial Beta launch on September 2nd, 2008 and […]
Sure, the landscape of Chrome OS tablets is pretty lonely for the moment. Acer’s Chromebook Tab 10 is the only completely-tablet option available right now, but devices like HP’s Chromebook x2 and the upcoming #madebyGoogle ‘Nocturne’ are both devices many users will interact with in tablet mode frequently.
A little over two weeks ago, Gabriel posted about the addition of the Google Assistant coming to the Chrome OS App Launcher. As Chromebooks all eagerly await the arrival of the Google Assistant (apart from the Pixelbook), we may be seeing the first sign of how it will get integrated across the board in Chrome […]
It has been three weeks and some change since developers released Chrome OS 68 to the public. Following a major hiccup, a rollback of the update server and a second iteration of the Stable release, Chromebook users on version 67 can finally join the rest of us on the newest release. I woke up to […]
We’re coming up on a full year since Google unveiled the Pixelbook to the world. Well, Google wasn’t actually the first to show off the new Chromebook if you remember: it was actually a huge pre-October leak led by Droid Life on September 19th of 2017. Regardless, we’re not far from marking the anniversary of […]
Two years ago at IFA Berlin, Acer announced the Chromebook R13 that unfortunately was quickly overshadowed by the release of the ASUS C302 and Samsung Chromebooks Plus and Pro. Since that time, the annual tech conference hasn’t seen much action on the Chrome OS front. This year is a completely different story.
A Chromebook equipped with a fingerprint sensor has been a long time coming. As far back as September of 2016, we’ve tracked multiple devices that have added support for the biometric capability but it wasn’t until October of 2017 that we really expected to see this feature on a device. Much to our dismay, the […]
I’m not kidding, just yesterday Gabriel and I were discussing the painful absence of Dell in the consumer Chromebook market. With the two and a half year gap since their last mid/high range Chromebook (the beloved Dell Chromebook 13), we were beginning to wonder if Dell was simply done with consumer Chromebooks.
Almost a year ago to the day, I penned a little opinion piece beckoning Acer to refresh one of my favorite Chromebooks. Since that time, Acer has gone on a tear and launched a whole arsenal of devices. The world’s first Chrome OS tablet, a pair of Pixelbook competitors and even a premium redesign of […]
Mark this one down as an insane deal, folks. Though the workhorse known as the Acer C720 isn’t a fresh, new, sexy Chromebook, it gets around quite well even after all this time. We all need to remember, after all, that Chromebooks actually get faster with time.
