Is there any reason the chromeboxes aren't included?
ya, what's the deal? i just got my chromebox tonight, is it already outdated, and not receiving updates? i was looking forward to the folder organization for apps.let me know, thanks!
I would also rely like an answer as to why the Asus Chromebox is not receiving the update. Will it receive the update at a future time?
It may be that the Chromebox and Samsung 3 Chromebook just haven't gotten it yet, not that they won't ever get it. Neither one is end of life yet, so they should get the update eventually. http://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/devices/eol.html
The Asus Chromebox came out 2 months ago and has the same chipset and processor as all the new Haswell Chromebooks. Unbelievable they can't get the update to it at the same time....
Engadget says this: "Unfortunately, not all Chrome OS devices will get this -- namely, the ASUS Chromebox and Samsung Series 3 Chromebox. Google didn't say whether the update will ever come to the omitted Chromeboxes, but we'll let you know if anything changes."What's the answer Google? i literally just got the box last night...Now i'm thinking i should return it.
Whiners! Chill out. Just because your chromebook won't have 3 features someone else's does doesn't mean it sucks for goodness sakes. You know what, return that thing please. Then we don't have to hear your whiny self drivel on forums. ;-)
What a short-sited thought. If the updates stop now for the Asus Chromebox then it will miss out on ALL future updates...next time try to add something to the discussion instead of making ignorant remarks.
Working experimental DirectWrite has arrived!Tried it and it still has quite a lot of problems compared to the rendering of IE11 and Firefox. (Thus experimental :P)
The current update described here changes portions of the firmware and/or early boot. I saw this when my peppy updated last night. Presumably, that is for captive portal compatibility changes as described.A chromebox is always on a network- i.e. doesn't need the captive portal changes. That probably means: it will get the changes soon enough, but it's not as much of a priority as it is for the Chromebooks, and there are presumably related reasons for the delay in updating the Chromeboxes (i.e. that Google hasn't just pushed the same updates to the Chromeboxes).The notion that Chromeboxes are no longer supported or that you need to return your recently purchased Chromebox because it's not updating is just silly. Chromeboxes are officially supported for several more years. Patience. Worst case they will get updated in 6 weeks, but probably long before that.
I have two devices with Chrome OS: Samsung Serie 3 and a Asus Chromebox.I will be very upset if I will not receive an update... I believe in ChromeOS but it could change.
It's strange, I just validate and I received the update on my Samsung Series 3 includes new features.Good new !
We use Samsung Series 3 Chromeboxes at work and none of them received the ChromeOS version 34 or 35 updates either. This is the second major update to ChromeOS that the Samsung Chromebox has not received. Also it has not received any of the security patches recently provide including the ones for flash. From my way of thinking, it looks like Chromeboxes are not being supported - can someone from Google comment of this?
My Samsung Series 3 Chromebook (ARM chipset) got the update (Chromebook= daisy).The Samsung Series 3 Chromebox (stumpy) has another chipset (x86) and didn't get it now!The ASUS Chromebox (panther) has a celeron chip !Do you got the difference?
Blah.... if this feature worked just constantly in the background it would be great, allowing you to use "OK Google" from your whole desktop would be awesome. But having it only work when you manually open a tab and go to Google.com makes it basically useless, since I (like most Chrome users) do that essentially never, we use the Omnibox, because that is what you guys have trained us to do!
patience is different than faith. you're asking us to have faith...not be patience. i want to know if it will happen or not, then i can wait. ANYWAY...i have another question: If i enable these features from chrome://flags, is it the same as the update or is it not the "final" stable version?
Google's official update policy is in writing:https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/devices/eol.html
I should have added:Devices are supported for 5 years, MINIMUM.Since it's just Linux, I wouldn't be surprised if many devices see support beyond that. I strongly suspect firmware updates are likely to be the primary maintenance burden for Google. If firmwares don't need updates, your device (I suspect) will get support beyond 5 years.I have three chromeboxes myself. The policy shows that Chromeboxes are supported until 2018 & 2019 depending on which Chromebox it is.
Guys, not sure if you're aware of this but just because some devices aren't included in every releases doesn't mean that they won't get the update eventually. Obviously they will. There have been times where the Pixel hasn't gotten the latest release for almost two weeks but eventually it did. So just be patient.
My Chrombook 3 just updated this morning....
