Things just got a little interesting. This has turned into less of a developer session and more of a press session
Actually, entirely a press session, much to the dismay of the non-press attendees who were asked to leave. (Staff is handling it as well as they can.)
Just a reminder that we'll livetweet this "What's new in Chrome OS" session, too. Things will get a little loud.
Getting people seated so we can start on time
This tent only holds 120 people.
Annnd we've sat down in mildly uncomfortable plastic chairs.
Morning (or afternoon) folks. Daniel, Phil, Andrew AND JERRY here to cover this ChromeOS event starting in about five minutes.
Dan forgot all about Jerry
Should start any second now.
Oh man, Jerry's never going to let me live that down. SORRY JERRY! <3
Looks like we're about to find out what's new in Chrome OS. :)
Here's what we know so far: Android apps are coming to Chromebooks "later in 2016"
Multitasking will obviously be a thing, with support for multiple window sizes
And you'll be able to use keyboard, mouse and touch (where supported) in Android apps on the Chromebook.
Still working out some tech kinks before this What's new in Chrome OS
thing gets going.
Chromebooks that will work with Android apps in June 2016
The first three Chromebooks will support Android apps in mid-June 2016:
Acer Chromebook R11
Asus Chromebook Flip
Google Chromebook Pixel (2015)
Chromeboxes will get this, too.
There are a bunch of tech people on stage trying to figure out why something isn't working. Hold tight, folks.
They're ... not using a chromebook.
Oh, wait. Those ARE Chromebooks.
There are no fewer than 6 people on stage trying to get this to work.
