Only half of the device models on the market right now have received the update, so hopefully everyone with the other half of the devices models that haven't received the update yet are not going to be posting here asking "when is xxxx device getting the update?"

Not sure why everyone keeps asking that question with every new update. The update slowly rolls out over days or even a week, but eventually they will all get it. But if it makes people feel better to post the same question over and over with every update, then I guess it is at least something for you to do to pass the time.

Daniel Eskildsen, Linux has been available on the stable channel, at least since 69.0.3497.120. I'm running that on my PixelBook and it does have Linux containers.

Are there Chromebooks that will never get version 70?
Some of them have 69 as stable and 71 as beta and no 70 in between.
Or am I missing something here?

It's just odd timing on Google's part. My X2 has version 71 on beta but yet stable is still only on 69. I figure by Monday my model will have stable 70.

SFCable, open Chrome and click the three verticle dots in the upper right hand corner, and from there click HELP and ABOUT CHROME OS. Then select CHECK FOR UPDATES.

Please bring the account picture back to the system tray (I use multiple login's and it was nice to glance down to the bottom right corner and see the time, and the account picture reminded me which account I was using. Thanks.

Somewhat disappointed to discover that the changes Google made to javascript which break the functionality of many websites are still in v70, after being aware of this issue for many months. Not fun having to resort to installing an alt-text viewer considering that none of them work very well--or at all in some cases.

Are there any plans to bring this update to Chromebooks running on a Coral-based version of Chrome OS? It's been a week, and my Acer Chromebook Spin 15 still has not received the update.

When printing from a Chromebook from docs and sheets where "save as a pdf" is the initial option, the print dialogue box displays briefly and then disappears. If you go to a non-doc/sheet page, pull up the print dialogue box and select something other than “save as pdf” then cancel and go back to docs, it then works. Anyone else seeing this?

The only current Chrome devices without the Chrome OS 70 stable release are the ones with the codename nami

Acer Chromebook 13 (CB713-1W ), Acer Chromebook Spin 13 (CP713-1WN), Yoga C630 Chromebook, HP Chromebook x360 14, Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14 2-in-1 7486

Just got the HP Chromebook x360 14 which came with Chrome OS 68 and has updated to Chrome OS 69 and waiting for 70.

I first noticed my Mom got this update earlier, and I updated my own Acer R11 Chromebook accordingly.

This update restored Google Play Store Certification to both of them, which makes me very happy. One tip, though: You need to run a Play Protect scan after updating to make it reflect its status at the bottom of the Play Store's Settings screen.

I also noticed that I can try Linux if I want to, also.
