[Update: Live] Chrome may soon add ability to import new tab backgrounds from Google Photos

Google added the option to customize Chrome's new tab page with a very familiar-looking selection of wallpapers last month. But if you thought Google was done working on the new tab page, you'd be wrong. About Chromebooks recently discovered a new change in Chromium Gerrit that'll allow users to import their new tab backgrounds from Google Photos as well.

In partnership with Google, STAEDTLER has confirmed that the education-focused Noris digital stylus for Chromebooks will be available by the end of summer. This is almost certainly the companion stylus to the leaked Acer Chrome OS tablet.

Acer Chromebook Spin 11 (2018) review: Costs too much for what you get

Chromebooks now spread across a wide range of price points. You have the ultra-premium Pixelbook, complete with a really high cost, and mid-range options like the Samsung Chromebook Pro.

20 of the best keyboard compatible Android games for Chrome OS

In light of the recent sale for the Google Pixelbook (that ends today, so make sure to grab one while you can), I thought it might be helpful to roundup some of the better Android games that are compatible with Chrome OS and work well with the keyboard. I for one hate getting fingerprints all over my screen, plus I also find a keyboard and mouse to be the optimal way to play a lot of games.

SD card support for Android apps, Gboard, low-latency drawing, and more coming to Chrome OS

At Google I/O 2018, the big announcement for Chromebooks was Linux app support. Even though it only works on the Pixelbook right now, with support for more models coming soon, it's still very exciting. That isn't the only new feature coming to Chrome OS - several other changes were covered after the keynote or discovered in recent Chromium commits.

[Deal Alert] ASUS Chromebook Flip C213SA-YS02 with stylus down to $320 ($79 off)

Chromebooks are continuing to become a very attractive product, but not everyone wants to drop $1000 or more on a Pixelbook.

Chrome OS Settings and Shortcuts to appear in launcher alongside Android apps

With Android tablets being... Android tablets, Chromebooks are quickly being adapted to fill the void. On supported devices, they combine the utility of Android apps with the flexibility of an adaptive (and productive) form-factor. The latest tweak, presenting Android-style Settings and Shortcuts apps in the launcher, further affirms the role Google's Chrome OS is set to assume.
