Specifically, that’s version 72.0.3626.97 of Chrome OS, which according to one report, brings Google Assistant and Android 9 Pie to select devices. Oddly, this news isn’t being promoted by Google itself, as the release notes don’t pack that tidbit.

That means you can access files from your accessories in apps emulated via the Google Play store. Even the Pixel Slate, during my testing, was missing this capability.The release notes also state that “Chrome browser has been optimized for touchscreen devices in tablet mode.” We hope this translates to reduced stutter, which Google was reportedly working on.Best Chromebook: Reviews and Comparisons  Author Biocenter_img Henry is a senior writer at Laptop Mag, covering security, Apple and operating systems.
