Chrome Operating System is not going away - Google


Few reports earlier have been made that Google is planning to phase out its Chrome operating system, but Google on Monday in a rare public response quashed the rumors of the demise of the Chrome OS. “While we’ve been working on ways to bring together the best of both operating systems, there’s no plan to phase out Chrome OS,” Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google’s senior VP for Android, Chrome OS and Chromecast, said.

The reports in the Wall Street Journal
earlier claimed that Google will be merging the Chrome OS, which powers the Web-centric Chromebook laptops with the Mobile Android Operating system. But Hiroshi Lockheimer has immediately responded to the reports with a tweet that the company is “very committed” to the desktop Chrome OS.

Mr. Lockheimer besides clarifying that Google has no plans to phase out Chrome OS, the exec has also cited the Chromebooks sales in the education market and focused on Chrome’s advantages. “Meanwhile, companies such as Netflix, Sanmina, Starbucks and of course Google, are using Chromebooks given the ease of deployment, the ability to easily integrate with existing technologies, and a security model that protects users at all levels, from hardware to user data.”

Informing on the further details of that Google is not folding out Chrome, he further added that a new media player running on the OS will be arriving soon. Google is now expected to produce laptops with hardware partners that run on Android next year, while  Chrome OS can run most Android apps without modifications
