What was different about the Samsung that it doesn't need this update?

Niklas W said...

I suppose the Samsung needs it as well, just that it's delayed due to some trouble..

Btw will this update include Google Now integration?

Will you ever optimize the pixel battery life? it is almost useless move it around.

Thomas Beling said...

Is it not available for all Samsung devices or only for a special Samsung Chromebook?

Dan Cross said...

I see the issue with Google Fonts not rendering - as was present in the beta build - has filtered on down to the latest stable release.

I know this is beating a dead horse, but I would love to see smart cart authentication included in the Chrome OS.

Still no update for Samsung Chromebook?

José Araújo said...

In my opinion something like "except Samsung Chromebook" deserved an explanation.

Kelly Quocksister said...

How much longer do those of us with Samsung Chromebooks have to wait for an update to Stable Channel Chrome OS version 33? The lack of an explanation as to why Samsung Chromebooks have not yet received an update is annoying.

My Sammy just updated which is great, but the "search contacts" feature that was supposed to be added does not seem to be working...sent a 'report an issue' so we'll see if I get anything back...
