The Chromebook Plus initiative by Google is a recently introduced classification for Chrome OS devices that must meet specific hardware criteria.
The software, AI capabilities, and other features of supported models will be enhanced and improved.
Chromebooks that currently meet the hardware requirements will receive support at a later date.
More than 12 years ago, Google introduced Chrome OS and the initial Chromebooks. The goal was to develop laptops that prioritize productivity, with a focus on simplicity, dependability, and high-level security. Since then, numerous companies have released hundreds of Chromebooks. While some are budget-friendly with lower quality components, others are premium machines priced at $1,000 or more. Despite their varying features and costs, all of these devices have one thing in common – they are Chromebooks.
Google is making major changes to the Chrome OS ecosystem. From now on, there will be two categories for Chrome OS devices: a standard Chromebook or a Chromebook Plus. While it may seem like a mundane way to label different types of Chrome OS machines, it actually has significant implications. The new Plus designation not only indicates the type of hardware, but also provides additional functionalities that non-Plus models will not have.
