Developer Information for Chrome OS Devices
This page provides developer-related information for Chrome devices. These are systems that shipped from the factory with Google Chrome OS on them. For details about Google Chrome OS and how it differs from Chromium OS, see the note in the FAQ about Google Chrome OS. Chrome OS devices typically require special setup in order to be used for Chromium OS development.
Caution: Modifications you make to the system are not supported by Google, may cause hardware, software or security issues and may void warranty.
Remember: Chrome OS devices are not general-purpose PCs. We believe you should be able to hack on your own property, but if you do it's not our fault if something breaks.
Googlers not finding what they're looking for may want to look at go/cros-names.
End of Life (EOL) / Auto Update Expiration (AUE)
The official Google policy includes projected dates. Here we focus on the corresponding release versions as that is often more useful to developers.
These WiFi routers are marketed as OnHub, Google Wifi, and Nest Wifi.

Are you having difficulty picking the Best Chromebook For Programming? With all these notebooks and ChromeOS apparatus in the marketplace nowadays, buying a notebook is almost always a challenging process. Fortunately for you, I have compiled a listing of the greatest Chromebooks for your programming needs.
The prerequisites for a fantastic programming apparatus are exactly the same, no matter the OS. Possessing a decent CPU, the absolute minimum of 8GB of RAM, and also a fantastic amount of disk space are crucial for a programming notebook. Many Chromebooks arrive with a Core m3 that is made for fanless systems and may access throttled under high load. Regrettably, the majority of Chromebooks do not have some lovers, so expect a little throttling in the event that you go for a fanless system. Additionally, expect these devices to be more costly than your average Chromebook because of the specs.
To assess what is the Ideal chromebook for programmers, I took into consideration that net and application programmers have particular software tools, for example:
- Syntax-highlighting text editor
- Safe shell and file transfer programs
- Team communication tools such as Slack or even IRC.
A few of the tools you are using might not be accessible on Chrome OS. To be able to use your favorite tools, you might want the flexibility of conducting Linux either side-by-side or instead of Chrome OS. You will probably also realize which you want to use a cloud-based IDE.
You need to pick a Chromebook that has a processor that can make it simple to set up Linux if you opt to do that immediately or down the street. That is because, in the event that you would like to utilize Crouton in your Chromebook to possess OS-switching in a keystroke, you want an Intel/AMD x86/64 processor, or you won’t have the ability to run particular programs. You might also dual-boot your own Chromebook with Linux versions like Ubuntu.
Aside from the processor necessity, you’ll also have particular hardware requirements. If You Want to work on pictures or at the control line for long periods, you Want a:
- High Excellent display
- Comfortable keyboard
- Strong processor
- Full-sized HDMI video output interface.
Chromebooks can be found in two distinct styles. The conventional clamshell and the 2-in-1 layout. When you consider buying a Chromebook, making certain you understand that it will fit your requirements is best. Can you do a great deal of drawing or drawing, then a 2-in-1 might be better for you since the hinge enables the notebook to fold the keyboard behind the screen and eventually become a tablet computer.
If you are a blogger or writer, then the clamshell design might be better for you since the tablet feature may not be a significant selling point for you.
The quantity of memory that your Chromebook has is vital. It will help each of the programs which you have along with the apparatus itself run fast so that you do not run into lag occasions. The typical amount of RAM a Chromebook includes is 4GB. If you are just going to use the laptop for surfing the net or viewing videos on the internet, then that is the correct number for you.
But if you anticipate doing jobs that may push the Chrome OS, then you may wish to plan for something a bit bigger. Some versions have a range of RAM available from 8 to 16 GB of RAM, but at the level, you might have some discretionary processor upgrades to consider. More RAM is never a bad thing. Just how much RAM you want depends upon what you anticipate doing.
Together with the Chrome OS to a Chromebook, the storage generally favors using alternatives like Google Drive or DropBox. In certain ways, this might be preferable to a few. So long as you have an online connection, you can get your documents, and with Google Drive, you may set up files to permit you to get them offline.
While the amount of storage from the hardware itself may not fit a few of their opponents, if both notebooks neglect, which one is going to keep your documents securely tucked away in the cloud?
The greatest selling point to anyone considering purchasing a Chromebook is your cost. When there are versions like the Pixelbook that may cost approximately $1,000, a great, quality Chromebook might just price between $299 and $499.
This is sometimes an ideal price range if you are on a budget, just starting out, or perhaps in school where the cash isn’t always offered.
What Chrome OS Can and Can Not Do
There may be a great deal of confusion in regards to the OS on Chromebooks, and also, we wanted to attempt to clean the fog, so to speak, so that you understand just what the Chrome OS can and can not do.
Due to the operating platform, a Chromebook is basically an Android pc. When utilizing a Chromebook is quite user-friendly, having the ability to get Android programs can add another tier of productivity into a Chromebook. Having access to programs like Spotify, Snapchat, Instagram, and lots of others may make things such as advertising your company on Instagram simpler.
For designers, previously, Chromebooks didn’t have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud, but which has just shifted as Adobe has made software for Chromebooks so it’s still possible to utilize their own systems. These programs are Photoshop Mix, Photoshop Sketch, Comp CC, Lightroom cellular, Illustrator Draw, and Creative Cloud Mobile.

How to enable Developer mode on a Chromebook in just a few minutes
Eric Zeman / Android Authority
Chrome OS devices are getting more powerful and capable, allowing for a pretty good, albeit simple, PC experience. If you want to go beyond the basic capabilities of your Chromebook, though, you’ll have to enable Chrome OS Developer Mode. This post will explain exactly how to do it and what to look out for when you’re at it.
Here:What is a Chromebook and what can it do?
Warning: Remember that enabling Chrome OS Developer Mode opens up your computer to abilities that aren’t officially supported. Make sure to do your research, and keep in mind that unsupported and experimental features can cause problems. The responsibility falls only upon you if something happens to your software or hardware.
What is Chrome OS Developer Mode, anyway?
Eric Zeman / Android Authority
Chrome OS Developer Mode is similar to gaining root access on your Android device. It gives you more control over your Chromebook and is a great option for those who love tweaking their devices.
Developer Mode isn’t for everyone and has several drawbacks, which we’ll get to later on. But if you want to gain root access to the Chrome OS’s file system to do things like sideload Android apps or install an additional OS, among many other things, enabling Developer Mode is the way to go.
How to enable Chromebook Developer Mode
Eric Zeman / Android Authority
First, make sure you back up and save any important files you have stored on your device. Enabling Developer Mode wipes your login info and any locally stored data, which cannot be restored.
How to enable Developer Mode:
- Turn on your Chromebook.
- Press and hold the Esc key, refresh key, and the power button at the same time.
- When the “Chrome OS is missing or damaged. Please insert a recovery USB stick or SD Card.” message shows up, press and hold the Ctrl and D keys simultaneously.
- Some Chromebooks may require you to turn OS verification off. Press Enter (if required).
- Wait for the device to restart and go through the Chromebook setup process.
- You will get an odd screen saying that OS verification is off. Keep in mind this screen will happen every single time you boot up.
- Press Ctrl and D to restart successfully.

How to disable Chrome OS Developer mode
Eric Zeman / Android Authority
As easy as it is to enable Chromebook Developer Mode, it is even simpler to disable it. But remember to backup your data once again, as disabling Developer Mode also erases everything from your Chrome OS device.
How to disable Developer Mode:
- Turn on your Chromebook or reboot it if it’s already on.
- When the screen that says “OS verification is off” shows up, press the spacebar.
- This will technically perform a factory data reset and wipe the laptop clean.
- Go through the Chromebook setup process again.
That’s all there is to it!

Drawbacks of enabling Developer mode
David Imel / Android Authority
There are a lot of advantages to enabling Developer Mode on your Chromebook. It gives you access to the developer shell, allows you to install a standard Linux desktop environment, and is something you will need to enable if you are a Chrome OS developer.
Developer Mode is certainly not for the average user, and some technical know-how is needed to take full advantage of this mode. It also has a few disadvantages that you need to be wary of — check them out below.
- Google doesn’t support Developer mode, so you may be at risk of voiding your device’s warranty.
- All the security features are disabled when Developer Mode is turned on.
- You lose your data when enabling or disabling Developer Mode. As you can see from the steps required to disable it, an accidental press of the spacebar at the wrong time is all you need to lose all your data once again. Making continuous backups if you’re working on something important is recommended.
- Chromebooks boot up extremely fast, which is a feature you will lose when Developer mode is enabled. You’ll have to see that warning screen every single time you switch on the device.
