How to Update your Google Chromebook

Two days back Google unveiled a couple of Netbooks running on Chrome OS, known as Google Chromebook. If you are not familar with Google Chromebook, here is little update for you, basically it is an entire operating system based around Chrome. The Chrome OS is a cloud-based Operating System, which means that all the data will be stored online on a remote server, rather than on a local hard drive. That means no need to install apps.

When you turn it on, it updates itself. All of your apps stay up-to-date, and you get the latest and greatest version of the operating system without having to think about it.

If the Chromebook show you that updates are available while you’re signed in on your Chrombeook, than click this wrench icon appears on the browser toolbar. Follow these steps to apply the update:

1. Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
2. Select Update Chrome OS.
3. After that , click Restart. Your Chromebook will shut down and automatically restart, with the update applied.

How to Check for updates Manually:-

You can check if updates are available at any time:

1. Click the wrench icon update icon on the browser toolbar.
2. Select About Chrome OS.
3. Click Check for update.

NOTE: When your Chromebook checks for updates, it sends information, such as version number, language, and other update-related details, back to Google servers. This information is not associated with you or your Google Account.
