Google adding Netflix, Hulu support, offline Gmail, Calendar and Docs to Chrome OS this summer
Google’s Chrome OS is getting bigger as Google adds more stuff into it. Netflix and Hulu will be supported right out of the box for the pair of new Chromebooks (one from Samsung and one from Acer).
The file manager has also been improved, along with an offline version of Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Docs.
Far more monumental, Google’s also just announced the cost of these Chromebooks and there’s no upfront payment to speak of. Instead, Chrome OS laptops will be distributed on the basis of a recurring monthly subscription, which will cost $28 per user for businesses and $20 per user for schools. That includes regular software and hardware upgrades.
That’s right. Whenever Google upgrades the hardware, you’ll get that too (presumably, that’s what Google said). Then again, you can’t play Call of Duty and World of Warcraft on this, and there’s no photoshop and 3D Studio Max. Also, when the internet’s down, presumably most of your functions will also be down. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.
My guess is, this Chrome OS won’t work in our country with shitty 3G connection and awful Shitmix.
