A lot of rumours has been passed around this week about Google’s move on merging Chrome OS into Android, and we think that’s a good thing.
Although, what name would they choose? I think they are running out of candy.
Chrome OS, which is present on Chromebooks, will make Android more adapdable to PC’s, making Android lighter and faster. Both will turn into a single operating system with access to the PlayStore, meaning that you’ll be able to run your phone apps directly on your PC without the use of third-party programs.
Sources say that the reason to anticipate this was because things could get out of hands, but now with Sundar Pichai as the CEO of Google, which by the way he was in charge of Android and Chrome OS back in 2013, things could really get on the right tracks and turn out to be a successful idea, also, Hiroshi Lockheimer, former vice president of engineering for Android, now has full leadership over Chrome, giving both platforms space to grow.
Although speculations have been around for years, nothing is really set. Google hasn’t done any big move to really “turn on” this project. It might take many years for us to see the first “AndroChrome” OS being launched.
As some sources say, Google’s plans is to launch the combined OS only for laptops, and with that, making its way through the computer market and hopefully grow strong between users.
