True to the “always new computer” tagline, Google(s goog) updated its software for Chromebooks on Friday, bringing several user interface improvements and new features. In a post on the Chrome Releases blog, Google says machines will all start receiving the update over the next several days. Device owners can expect to see software version 23.0.1271.94 running on platform version 2913.224.0 in the coming days, regardless of which Chromebook model they have: Samsung’s Chromebook, Series 5 550 or Acer’s C7. (See my performance testing between the three models here)

The update hasn’t appeared on my Chromebook yet, but here’s what I expect to see, per the release notes:

  • Updated default apps
  • Window Manager Enhancements
  • UI improvements for notifications through the new message area
  • UI improvements to the out of box experience
  • UI improvements to the sign-in screen
  • Device reset from start screen and settings (click here for more details)

About Rob Vanasco

I am a Christ follower, but sometimes not a very good one. I am a husband, and working on getting better. I am a father, sometimes reluctantly. I am an aspiring writer, but have been lazy about pursuing my dream. So, this is me, doing something about it, searching for my real passion; my real dream. I am now in full pursuit of my dream to make a living with words.
