A few hours after yesterday’s partial release of Chrome OS 69, our friends over at Android Police alerted me that their Pixelbooks were getting the update despite being left out of the initial update. Most of our devices around the office are on Developer or Canary so we hadn’t noticed. Thanks to @RyneHager for the […]
No official word from the Chrome Release Blog but according to the update server, Chrome OS 69 has started rolling out to a handful of Chromebooks. There isn’t a lot of rhyme or reason to the devices that are getting version 69 other than they are all older Chromebooks starting around the Braswell generation and […]
Two weeks ago, the Chrome OS team pulled the trigger on the update to version 68 of our favorite operating system but alas, all was not well. In the days following, most users were able to receive the update but a nasty bug promted the team of developers to halt the release due some pretty […]
Just one week ago, Chrome OS 68 was released to users around the globe. In what has become an expected rollout, many devices were left out of the initial launch for reasons that only the Chromium developers know. While frustrating, the staggered release of new versions of Chrome OS is pretty much par for the […]
Last week, Chrome OS version 68 started rolling out to a number of devices but, as with most releases lately, a large number of Chromebooks and Chromeboxes did not receive the update immediately.

The accelerated development of the Crostini Project and Linux apps on Chrome OS is a promising sign that we may see the new features come to the Stable channel for more users in the very near future. If we’re lucky, we might see Crostini move to the Stable channel in the next major update to […]
It has turned into a busy Friday here at the Chrome Unboxed office and we’re just getting started. We have Chrome OS news spilling over so fast it’s a juggling act just trying to keep it all straight. In the midst of it all, the Chrome team decided it was time to push out version […]
For the second time since its release, Google’s Pixelbook has suffered a minor bug that has left the device labeled as “uncertified” by the Google Play Store. The first instance happened back in November and resulted in the Netflix Android app failing to install as the Pixelbook wasn’t registering as a compatible device. The most […]
There’s a lot of buzz around the in-development Crostini Project for Chrome OS and the potential impact it could have on the entire Chromebook ecosystem. We’re really hoping that in just under two weeks, developers will give us some insight into the roadmap for Linux apps on Chrome OS as they gather for the annual […]
Last week, Chrome OS was updated to version 65 and with that update, many new features both big and small were introduced. One of the things we really want to do with this update is to show some of the new, interesting additions to the OS and talk about what makes them important. Today will […]
Better late than never, right? Slated for the end of 2017, making phone calls from Google Home was a feature delayed for users in the United Kingdom. Yesterday, the community manager of the Google Home product forum officially announced that the feature has now been turned on.
