Minor Chrome OS Update Brings Security Fixes to Most Devices

This morning, the Chrome team within Google has begun pushing out a minor update to Chrome OS for the majority of devices.  The new update is build 60.0.3112.114 (Platform version: 9592.94.0) for those keeping score at home.  It is coming to all devices except the Acer Chromebook 15 (CB3-532) and the Samsung Chromebook 3.

The update is predominantly made up of security fixes and bug fixes in the platform with a handful of feature enhancements too.  The release notes on this update were vague as to what was addressed or fixed, but that is common for Chrome OS releases that are small in nature and midstream from the main releases every 6 weeks or so.

If you have a Chrome OS device, you can check for the update manually by typing chrome://help in the browser and checking for the update.  On my Acer Chromebook 14, it took less than 2 minutes to download and reboot.  Yes, it’s small.

Finally, there is a report that the Acer Chromebook 14 for Work now has Android apps in this stable channel build.  I’ve not been able to confirm that yet nor have I been able to confirm if any other devices now have Android app support.  If you update and have support, drop me a comment here so I can update this post (with proper credit of course).
