Chrome OS

Using Linux as a base, Google designed Chrome OS to work exclusively with specially designed applications. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, which is greatly inspired by the Google Chrome web browser and includes Google Assistant integration. Chrome OS was built for people who spend a majority, if not all, of their time on the computer connected to the internet. The only application that comes installed on Chrome OS is a special Google Chrome web browser with an integrated media player and file manager. All other applications are accessed by adding apps from the Google Play Store. Since Chrome OS relies entirely on downloaded apps and access to Google's services, it is highly recommended that you connect to the internet to optimize your Chrome OS experience.
