Day 1 of Google I/O 2021 didn’t reference Chromebooks much. After watching a video presentation I found 9 new Chromebook features on the way.
Recent Geekbench listings suggest the next Pixelbook, likely Atlas, will use the same chipsets as the Pixel Slate. That doesn’t make sense for a few reasons.
Chrome OS has mostly been a no-show so far at Google I/O, however the developer keynote highlighted a special Android Studio build and recommended Chromebooks to code Android apps.
Join me at 1pm ET for a livestream of the Google I/O 2019 keynote along with commentary from the folks at This Week in Google. I don’t expect new Chromebooks but there will plenty of news to discuss.
Hoping to see the Atlas Chromebook appear at Google I/O 2019 as a Pixelbook refresh? That’s not likely going to happen this week: Look for Atlas in October.
if you can’t be on-site at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, you can still catch the event live on the web. Right after the keynote ends, I’ll be joining This Week in Google on video for an overview and thoughts on the announcements. Tune in!
It’s nearly here: Tomorrow, Google kicks off I/O, its annual developer conference that often includes an exciting product announcement or two. With so much recent activity in the Chrome OS space, Android won’t be the sole star of the show, which is typically the case.
