Three years after Chrome OS began supporting Linux applications, Google announced at its Google I / O event which will finally leave beta mode in the "next version" of Chrome OS. The next version, according to Android Central is 91, and is expected to arrive in the "next few weeks."
As The Verge recalls, Chrome OS as an operating system has always been based on Linux, but since 2018 your Linux development environment offers access to a Linux terminal, which developers can use to run command-line tools.
The function also allows install and launch full Linux apps alongside your other apps. In addition to Linux apps, Chrome OS also supports Android apps.
Emilie Roberts, representative of the Google developer area, said during the I / O meeting that in addition to the end of the beta, there will be a series of improvements in the functionality of Linux in Chrome OS. Among them are a new update process that promises to be faster and updates the Linux container at the same time as Chrome OS itself.
