You can’t use Google Assistant on a Chromebook unless you spend a lot of money on Google’s Pixelbook. The company launched this premium Chromebook last year and aside from the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, it was one of the few devices with native Google Assistant integration. It appears that the company is now preparing Assistant for Chromebooks other than the Pixelbook.
Chromebooks are powered by Google’s cloud-based Chrome OS and they’ve been very well received particularly in the education sector. These machines are lightweight, nimble and not to mention cheap compared to conventional PCs. Despite all that they’ve got going for them, Chromebooks have never offered a native video recording feature because Google never built one into Chrome OS. That might change with the new Chromebook that Samsung has reportedly been […]
Microsoft’s Office suite of productivity applications has been available for Android since the past couple of years. However, even though Chromebooks have the ability to run Android apps, these apps weren’t made compatible with Chromebooks for some reason. Chromebook users certainly didn’t like this as it prevented them from getting work done on their device using Microsoft’s apps. It appears that Microsoft has had a change of heart now.
Samsung unveiled its Chromebook Pro and Chromebook Plus earlier this year and it’s about time that we started hearing reports about a new one from the company.

Chromebooks are a hit in the education sector so it’s not surprising to see that Google works with hardware manufacturers on Chromebooks for students. It announced HP’s Chromebook x360 11 G1 Education Edition earlier this year in March. It wasn’t available for everyone back then but it is now. HP has released the Chromebook x360 to the public.

Multiple reports have suggested that Google will soon bring its AI-powered Assistant to Chromebooks. The company has also started the process of sunsetting its “Ok, Google” feature in favor or Assistant. Reports have also suggested that new Chromebooks will have a dedicated Assistant key. The newly leaked Chromebook keyboard layout confirms this possibility.
Google appears to be cooking up some new features for Chrome OS, the cloud-based operating system that powers Chromebooks. According to a new report, Google will soon bring text notifications to Chromebooks. This will provide users with access to their text messages on their notebooks.
Google Assistant is the search giant’s very own artificial intelligence-powered assistant. It’s already available on Android smartphones and smart home devices like Google Home. One can imagine that it’s only a matter of time before it lands on Chromebooks as well. If recent developments are any indication, it may not be long before Google Assistant becomes available on Chromebooks.
Google confirmed a couple of months back that it was working on bringing full support for Android apps to Chromebooks. Not every Chromebook will get this feature, though. There are more than 80 models that are eventually going to be able to run Android apps. Google has now rolled out Android app support to new Chromebooks from Lenovo, HP, and Acer.
Rick Osterloh, the senior vice president for hardware at Google, said earlier this week during a meeting with journalists at the Mobile World Congress 2017 that his company had “no plans for Google-branded laptops.” This led many to believe that the company would no longer be making any Pixel-branded laptops.
