Google’s Pixelbook division is making new laptops and tablets

Google has been the major player in software for many years, but their hardware-related ambitions have been unpredictable so far. As of now, the only seriously taken hardware division is the Pixel phones. Google hasn't had much success in producing tablets, laptops, and convertibles. Some of them were lacking the perfection of the hardware, while...

Rumored Made by Google “Atlas” Chromebook gets shown off on video

Google's commitment to its Chrome OS desktop operating system has been evident in the past, and with good reason, as Chrome OS serves its purpose as a nice, lightweight operating system.

New Chrome OS flag will enable Google Assistant on all Chromebooks

Google Assistant started a couple of years ago on just Allo and Google Pixel phones. Slowly, it has been added to many more devices. Almost any Android phone can use Assistant now, but Chromebooks are still lagging behind. Currently, only the Pixelbook and Pixel Slate support Google Assistant on Chrome OS.

Android Messages integration with Chromebooks rolls out for the Pixelbook

One of the most anticipated features for the Android Messages app (now called just "Messages") was its web client, at least among Americans who still send messages via SMS.

From the very beginning, Chrome OS has always been about 3 things: Speed, Simplicity, and Security.

While it's nearly impossible to keep everything under wraps, we've seen a comically large number of leaks of this year's Pixel line-up, most notably of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. We've even seen the third-generation Chromecast, Google Home Hub smart display, and Pixel Stand wireless charging dock....

Detachable Chromebook ‘Nocturne’ may launch in time for Google’s hardware event

A high-end detachable Chromebook codenamed "Nocturne" may arrive just in time for the holiday rush, according to a recent commit in the Chromium Gerrit. This is the same Chromebook which we suspect could be the Google Pixelbook successor. The commit is for building the factory image of Nocturne. The factory image is used for running a series...

‘Atlas’ Chromebook with 4K display, 8GB RAM, Assistant button, & backlit keyboard is coming

There are a lot of different Chromebooks in the works right now, and any one of them could be the upcoming Pixelbook 2018 edition. We've narrowed it down to three separate boards: Nocturne, Atlas, and Cheza. That's in order of what we perceived to be the likelihood, but the Atlas Chromebook has gotten a whole...

Google Pixelbook may be the only current Chromebook to support Windows 10

There was a time when you needed a computer with Windows if you wanted to play any popular game, use popular services and programs, or have support for the widest range of hardware.
