As it stands right now, Chromebooks don’t do anything but go to sleep if you leave them alone for a bit. Sure, you can set a few parameters to keep the display on indefinitely and you can control what happens when you shut the lid, but there’s really nothing you can do on your Chromebook […]
One of the features I’m most looking forward to becoming a part of the Stable Channel experience on Chromebooks with Chrome OS 76 is Virtual Desktops. While I love what they’ve done already with the feature, I’m hopeful that some trackpad-driven navigation (mainly switching between active desktops with a multi-finger gesture) will be in the […]
Brydge’s C-Type keyboard designed specifically for Chrome OS has been on the market barely a month. Retailing for $99, it may not be for everyone but we unanimously agree that it’s worth the money. If you’ve had your eye on the premium Bluetooth keyboard, we just stumbled upon a deal that makes easily makes the […]
The ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) 2019 conference kicks off in just a couple of days but before thousands of educators converge on Philadelphia, a new player in the Chrome OS arena has emerged. These guys are seasoned veterans when it comes to technology in education but this new Chromebox will be their […]
As we do around Chrome Unboxed, we have tons of devices hanging out in just about every channel at any given moment. A handful on Stable, a couple in Beta, quite a few in the Dev Channel, and usually Gabriel’s device in Canary help us stay abreast of the new changes and fun surprises coming […]
One of my favorite parts of using a Chromebook is the ease of setting up secondary displays. I’ve yet to encounter a display that didn’t just work when attached to my Chromebook. Even with differences in scaling and DPI, moving windows between screens is fluid, easy, and the setup is painless. For me, using the […]
You may be reading that headline and thinking to yourself: “What is a channel membership?” Or, you might be asking, “Chrome Unboxed has a YouTube Channel?” (We’ve had plenty readers not know about our YouTube Channel and plenty of YouTube viewers not know about our website. Crazy, but true!)
Picture in Picture (PiP) for the Chrome browser has been a work in progress for nearly a year and a half. Since Chrome 70, Mac, Windows and Linux have been able to take advantage of this handy little feature by right clicking (twice in some cases) on videos from sites such as YouTube and Vimeo […]
As we reported multiple times last year, AMD has entered the Chromebook arena and Acer is now first out of the gate to bring us an AMD-powered Chromebook. The Acer Chromebook 315 debuts as a parallel announcement from AMD with HP also jumping on board with their own AMD device.
One of the benefits of being a Chromebook user is the schedule of regular updates your device will always receive quietly and in the background. For all the things many people think Chromebooks lack, they can’t argue with the fantastic update experience Chrome OS offers its users.
Back in November, we stumbled upon the fact that the pinch to zoom function was now working on a handful of devices which confirmed our previous findings that this much-needed feature was headed to Google’s Pixelbook, the Samsung Pro and Plus as well as the Chromebook Pixel 2015.
