Google is reportedly working on a new operating system for laptop/tablet hybrids. The new operating system is codenamed Google Andromeda or Project Andromeda. Here are the details that we know so far.

The new operating system will incorporate apps of Android and Chrome OS. Google has already Chrome OS with Android apps integration. Then what special features users can expect with Andromeda?

Andromeda Features

Google?s current Chrome OS acts like a big web browser. Users can play online games and perform any other online task. However, apps and games are limited to download and install on ChromeBook. Andromeda is expected to bring millions of Android apps to Andromeda powered devices.

Moreover, users can not install Chrome OS on multiple devices. It is limited to ChromeBooks and selected devices as other devices encounter problems while installing. For example built-in Wi-Fi doesn?t work on HP S372OY with Chrome OS installed. For more details about compatible devices please visit the company?s developer?s page.
