Google Assistant is coming to Chrome OS, as per the reports from the 9 to 5 Google. A code hidden
away in the Google Home app drops a hint that the arrival of the Google Assitant for Chromebooks
might happen anytime soon. The Home app list support for the Google Home, Allo, Android 6.0+, iOS
9.0 and now to the Chromebook.
We have been listening to a lot that the Google Assistant is coming to Chromebooks for a while now.
Earlier this year, in June, Chromeunboxed reported that Google's next high-end Chromebook will
include a button or keyboard shortcut to trigger the Google Assistant. Which is the upcoming
Chromebook which might be launched as the Pixelbook. According to Android Police, Google
Pixelbook will be coming with the memory options of the following 128GB, 256GB, 512GB storage
The Pixelbook is set to have an estimated price tag of $1199 (or approx Rs 78,276) as and when it is
out for sale. The device features a brand-new design and a working stylus called “Pixelbook Pen”.
Even though there’s a still some debate about whether the Pixelbook will run Chrome OS or a
Chrome OS and Android hybrid. Some of the previous reports have suggested that Google has been
developing a new operating system called Fuchsia that is being designed for “the new age phones
and modern personal computers”.
Google will be holding its dedicated hardware event on October 4 in San Francisco, where it is likely
to launch the Pixelbook with Google Assistant. Beyond the Pixelbook, the software giant is said to
launch the much-awaited Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Ultra Pixel, a mini size Google Home, and an all-new
Daydream VR headset as well.
Google wants to create the right amount of buzz post the Apple and Samsung events so the giant is
said to go all out. Would you be using Google Assistant on Chromebooks?
