Our 10 favorite Chrome and Chrome OS features from 2020

Our 10 favorite Chrome and Chrome OS features from 2020

2020 was (well, as of writing, still is) quite a crazy year, and that craziness also had a huge impact on the tech industry. The internet is gradually becoming more divided across countries, the trade war that completely changed Huawei's phone business is raging on, and the global pandemic affected both hardware and software release cycles — you might remember that Chrome and Chrome OS updates were temporarily paused when everyone started working from home.

Despite all that, there were also a lot of good things happening in tech: Foldables have matured and are headed for mainstream, budget phones don't suck anymore, Android has received tons of helpful features, and Chrome and Chrome OS have also benefitted from a lot of great developments.

The 30 best Android apps of 2020 for your new phone, tablet, or Chromebook

The year is almost over, and it was one for the record books, that's for sure. While 2020 may have been challenging for many of us, we've also seen some fantastic apps released this year. This is why I take the time every December to compile a roundup of the best apps to land on the Play Store that year (yes, I also have a 2020 list for the best games). I've selected 30 notable apps that offer a wide range of features and services, so there should be something in here for everyone. Heck, we've seen so many quality releases this year I've even included an honorable mention section at the end of the roundup.

Our 10 favorite Android features from 2020

2020 has been a standout year in more ways than one. On personal, national, and global levels, many of us have faced hardships and had to adapt to new realities and life-altering changes. On this day, though, I'd like to put the negative thoughts aside and focus on what has kept us rolling here at Android Police despite it all.

We love gadgets (duh), we love Android, and we love digging, finding, and reporting on the smallest and biggest features that come to those metal and glass sheets that we carry with us everywhere. Some of them are bad, bad, evil changes; others are much more welcome.

Pixels with Adaptive Charging won't adapt to night owls

We live in a 24/7 world that has taken "work from home" to a whole new meaning and yet, Google seems to think we all live, work, and sleep the same hours. At least, that's what its Pixel phones with adaptive charging seem to think. That probably needs to change.
