Chromebooks are devices built around Google’s Chrome OS platform. While it is not a device that is usually preferred by regular users, the Chromebook has garnered some popularity however among those who are focusing on having a cloud base eperience for all their work and data. There were two new Chromebook devices announced at this year’s CES event in the form of the Chromebook Pro and Plus. Both devices were courtesy of Samsung and created quite the hype at the event and way after their unveiling.
During the event, the two Chromebooks were found running Google’s Chrome 55 OS version, with multiple Android apps installed. Since Marhsmallow would be a major drawback for the devices in terms of features and capabilities, most people hope that we will see them run Android 7.1 Nougat at or soon after the release. The next installment for Google’s Chrome OS, namely Chrome OS 56 will be available starting with the ending period of January. Many are speculating that this release will also trigger the implementation of Android 7.1 Nougat into the Chromebooks.
One of the most anticipated features from this update, which is also why people so desperately want it incorporated, is the ability to resize windows. As mundane as that may sound for a regular PC user, resizing windows on Chromebooks isn’t quite the same.
It will be exciting to see if Google will end up bringing out the big guns a.k.a Android 7.1 Nougat for the Samsung Chromebook Pro and Samsung Chromebook Plus. There’s still some time before people can actually fully get into these units, but not that much as to allow Google to drag out the 7.1 Nougat update for an unreasonable amount of time. Until more news surface regarding the issue, we’ll just have to wait and see what Google decides.
