ChromeOS, the operating system developed by Google and based on Linux, is in the process of changing. Despite the simplicity of its design and the security it brings to users of the Chromebook line of laptops, which is particularly successful in the education sector, Google has decided to introduce more Android components to enjoy a faster and smarter experience.

Recently, the Mountain View giant announced new features powered by Google AI and Gemini, the artificial intelligence chatbot created by Google, which are now available in its new category of Chromebook Plus laptops. However, they want to implement new AI features on a faster and larger scale, and have decided that “ChromeOS will soon be developed on much of the Android stack to bring Google’s AI, innovations, and features more quickly to users.”

Google’s goal is to launch more AI features in its line of Chromebook laptops

The news has been published on the official Chromium blog, where they share all the news of the open source browser project, and where they have explained that they will adopt parts of the Android stack, such as the Android Linux kernel and Android frameworks, as part of the ChromeOS base.

However, this integration is not something new, as there are already multiple Android apps available in ChromeOS, and they also have on the table the unification of the Bluetooth batteries of both systems. As a fact, this process to manage all the services of the connectivity port has been underway since version 122 of Google Chrome, which was released last February.

These innovations will accelerate the pace of AI innovation and enable the release of AI features with greater agility, but will also serve to simplify engineering efforts. And that’s not all, because the changes will help devices like phones and accessories work better alongside Chromebooks. All this, without neglecting the security, appearance and administration capabilities for which its equipment stands out, which is liked by both individual users and companies and the educational sector.

These improvements are currently in the process of development, but nothing is known yet about their availability, although they warn that they will not be ready for consumers for quite some time. Additionally, Google ends this announcement by saying that, when the time comes, they will provide a seamless transition to the upgraded experience.
