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 can be found here.  That page includes projected dates, so here we focus on the corresponding release versions as that is often more useful to developers.

Notebooks and Desktops

These are your standard Chromebook/Chromebox/etc... devices.  See the list at the bottom of the page.


These are WiFi routers that are marketed under the name OnHub.
