Stable Channel Update for Chrome OS

The Stable channel has been updated to 39.0.2171.94 (Platform version: 6310.61.0). Systems will be automatically updated over the next few weeks. This build contains a number of bug fixes, security updates, and feature enhancements.

Some highlights of these changes are:
  • Fix for an issue where the screen flickers on boot and then goes blank (432525)
If you are affected by this problem, please keep your device connected to the network and lid open for an hour to make sure the update is applied. Then restart the device and confirm you are able to see the sign-in screen again.

If you find new issues, please let us know by visiting our forum or filing a bug. Interested in switching channels? Find out how. You can submit feedback using ‘Report an issue...’ in the Chrome menu (3 horizontal bars in the upper right corner of the browser).

I have no idea how to chromecast from google drive. Every time I try and play the video file from drive it just tries to download it locally. You guys should just cut to the chase and allow us to chromecast local files.

Normally the chomebook automatically connects to a wireless network. I had it plugged into a power source and open all day. Still flickering after re-boot. Do I need to buy a dongle to physically connect it to a network?

I've noticed that youtube and other video streaming has gotten choppy on my Chromebook 2 with this latest update. It's having a harder time playing 1080p video now.

No Chrome OS devices were listed as excluded, but only Chromebooks (not Chromeboxes or Chromebases) seem to be able to update. It is a release schedule or an oversight/omission? Or something local to me?
