Google Chrome OS seems to be receiving updates on a monthly basis. In early October, the search giant rolled out Chrome OS 61 and at the end of the same month, Chrome OS 62 was rolled out to supported devices.
Now, as at the time of this writing, there’s a new version of the Chromebook OS rolling out. As you may have already guessed, this is Chrome OS 63 and is rolling out to the stable channel, which means all Chromebook users with supported devices can expect to get the update anytime from now. While some people had already reported that the OS is rolling out, it’s only now that the company has made an official post about the release of the operating system.
Even though the official announcement doesn’t include a changelog, you can be sure that Google Chrome OS 63 not only brings a few new features, but it also installs bugs and security fixes as well as performance improvements. Some users are reporting that the update also brings a major update to the Text app and it’s also now possible to update apps right from the notifications panel. There’s also a new Do Not Disturb button in the notifications panel.
Besides releasing Google Chrome 63.0.3239.86, the search giant is also rolling out an updated beta version of the same OS. This installs Chrome OS 64.0.3282.24, but not all Chromebooks are supported. There is a number of bug fixes, security updates as well as feature improvements included in the update and like the stable version, the OS will be rolling out over the next few days.
Developers also have a new update for the Dev Channel for desktops, where the update installs software version 65.0.3294.5 for Mac and Linux and version 65.0.3294.5/.6 for Windows.
