If you’re like us, you’re just starting to wake up from the dizzying reality of Black Friday. For the past week, deals and markdowns have been all the rage. While it makes sense and it is simply that time of year, all the sales and offers get a little tiring after a while. As much […]
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.
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 […]

The Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 showed up basically out of nowhere. I still remember getting the press release from Samsung back in June and being a bit taken aback by the abrupt arrival of this new Chromebook. After looking through the changes on offer, I was a little on the fence about the device as […]
Let’s be honest. The introduction and adoption of both Allo and Duo about two and a half years ago didn’t go as Google hoped. Downloads surged shortly after announcement, but the choice to tie both services to a phone number instead of a Google Account derailed the entire effort quite suddenly. Sure WhatsApp and Snapchat […]
There are so many Chromebooks in so many configurations these days, it is tough to nail down which device to buy and which configuration to select once you’ve landed on a model. One of the main contributing factors to this selection for many is internal storage. Sure, we’ve seen more Chromebooks with better baseline storage […]
After a minor hiccup that left countless consumers believing that their pre-ordered Pixel Slate would be shipping out as early as yesterday, we now have a firm release date for Google’s Chrome OS tablet.
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 […]
In the tech world, devices come and go and float into irrelevance far too quickly. Most of this happens due to yearly refreshes to existing lines and slick marketing that makes consumers fear not having the latest, greatest version of their device. To a large extent, the way we see mobile phone updates fuels this […]
Black Friday week has officially kicked off at Amazon and in celebration, the online retail giant is giving away a ton of hot tech including an HP Chromebook 14, Surface Pro, Sony Headphones and more.
As the landscape of Chrome OS continues to evolve and change, the introduction of higher-end devices with higher-end price tags could make us all forget about the humble beginnings of Chrome OS and the budget Chromebook.
Nearly a year ago, Google sunsetted the Supervised Users program for Chrome OS. This brought and end to an era of convoluted and insanely frustrating account management for parents wanting to help their kids maintain healthy online habits. Moving away from the Supervised User platform was a much-needed shift as the system was fractured at […]
