Can you imagine receiving notifications just as you are online, straight to your chrome? Well, you may no longer have to keep imagining it if Google is all set to better integrate android with Chrome OS. As you may already know, Google chrome is Google’s OS for laptops, desktops, detachable and even tablets.
While Android had been kept separate to date, and there was even discussion on creating a dedicated web client for androids, it now seems that Google wants better integration between its chrome OS and androids.
So what does this mean for us? Read on to know more.
So far, the details are hazy as to what it means for us, will we be able to open up messages and get notifications sent to our Chrome account? Will the latest feature mean that we can read and respond ot messages in real time without having to open up another app to do the same? One thing is for sure, Google is mixing things up and we can all look forward to the next Google update.
The latest commit suggests that the chromebook will be paired with android as part of the browser process and as to whether it would be possible for cellular connectivity is something that we may have to wait to see if that happens.
Given the fact that we already have various apps that make it possible for us to call others online, adding cellular connectivity to chrome is not a deal breaker in the sense it is no longer considered important. Google would do better to focus on delivering on high-end functionality, to enhance user experience.
At the end of the day, everyone wants a better experience online and Google would do much better to deliver on the same. It would be interesting to at least get a broad idea of what this integration means for the rest of us, normal folk? So far Google has been keeping mum about all the details but one thing is for sure, we can expect the new changes to roll out with the next update or one after that.
