Chrome OS is a reliable operating system (OS) created by Google specialists on the basis of Linux kernel. It looks like a hybrid of Android and Windows. The OS is mainly used in ChromeBook notebooks to work with files and documents, navigate online resources, and play media files. In addition, the platform supports devices with ARM/ARM64 and x86/x64 architecture.
One of the main embedded applications in the OS is Google Chrome. Browser provides high speed of page loading and quick access to popular Google services. It is perfectly adapted to work with various web applications. In turn, for parents there is an option that allows them to set up a blacklist and add sites with content that is not intended for children and teenagers.
One of the key features of Chrome OS is support for Android applications. Users are free to download and install programs and games from Google Play Market or Google Store (Webstore) on their devices. It should be remembered that in order to install APK-applications from third-party sources it is necessary to activate the developer mode in the system settings. In addition, in the past OS upgrades have gained support for Linux applications.
Unfortunately, the presented operating system does not come as a separate distribution or image. In most cases, laptop and tablet manufacturers install the OS on their devices in advance. Therefore, the only way to get it is to buy the appropriate computer equipment with Chrome OS installed. Hrombukov’s owners and Google Pixel Slate tablets will be able to download new OS updates on the official website. You can also install the Chromium OS distribution kit, which is actually a modified version of Chrome OS. It gives you an overview of the basic features of Google's operating system.
