  • Google is merging Chrome OS and Android

    Google's two operating systems will soon be one. Chrome OS is going to be combined with Android, and the combined OS could be
    ​revealed as soon as next year, according to The Wall Street Journal. The Journal reports that Chrome is essentially being folded into Android,
    because Android has emerged as the dominant operating system by quite a long stretch. Combining the two operating systems means setting
    up Android to run on laptops and desktop computers, which would require big changes, as well as supporting the Google Play Store.
    Chromebooks will reportedly receive a new name to reflect the new OS.


    The Verge has independently confirmed that Chrome OS and Android will combine, with a preview likely to be demonstrated at Google I/O next year.
    The move marks an effort at Google to reduce the number of independent platforms, it has to maintain, sources said.

    The new operating system is expected to be released sometime in 2017. While this is a major and somewhat surprising move
    Chromebooks have been fairly successful and are a great low-cost computer option it's easy to see how Google got here.
    Sundar Pichai, who's now leading Google, was put in charge of both Chrome and Android two years ago, and he's made moves to bring the two
    operating systems closer in that time. That includes adding support for Android apps inside of Chrome OS.
    Though support is still limited, some Android apps are up and running on Chromebooks.
    Google also revealed a convertible Android laptop last month, called the Pixel C. Now, it seems like that's just an early sign of what's to come.

    In my opinion, It is about time that Google use the abilities of both OS for a fusion in one system.

    I have my Chromebook for more than a year and its a very fast and easy to use OS except of some limitations. Thats where Android can step in to help.

    "Chrondroid" is coming.

    I can't wait to hear more detals.

        If you want to try you can Test it with Chromium Os. The Open-source way if it.

          You can try Chrome OS in Windows 8.1 also, go to settings, Relaunch Chrome in Windows 8 Mode. Hides windows completely.

              Used to be big fan of mozzilla even created my own personalised web browses via but lately I find chrome to be better suited and even i.e which still seems to be no#1 browser I guess because it comes with win packages and most businesses use win packages
