Are you a Chromebook user? Update your Chromebook with android 11 now! The most awaited update to your device is finally at the tip of your fingers. It is the eleventh major release of the android version by Google and the latest version to date.
You do not need to strain your eyes anymore; you can just switch to dark mode and enjoy your screen time even late at night. The chrome OS 89 provides a new dark mode toggle that dims the lights for android apps.
The update has come up with a better layout. The font sizes and the overall interface are also much larger, which makes it reader-friendly and easy to work on than before.
If you want to get all these killer features, then get the latest Android 11 update for Chromebook.
- make sure that your Chromebook is eligible for android 11 update (you can find the list of eligible devices below these steps)
- Android 11 is now rolling out in the beta channel of Chrome OS, so what you need to do is switch to the beta channel and then you’re ready to receive your update.
Steps to update:
- Firstly, click on the quick setting panel on the right-hand bottom corner of your Chromebook. It will take you to the Settings menu.
- Select About Chrome OS and then click on Additional Details.
- You need to click on the channel change button in order to change the channel to beta.
- Now go back to the about chrome OS page and then tap on the Check for updates button. (Now your chrome book will start updating to the latest Chrome OS build)
- Once it is downloaded, your Chromebook needs to be restarted to complete the installation.
Please note: Shifting to the beta channel will not erase your Chromebook data but, moving back to the stable channel once you installed with beta will completely erase your Chromebook data.
- Once you’re on the updated Chrome OS build, go to the setting page, open the app section, then click on the manage android preferences (if your Chromebook is built on hatch board, then you will receive the update after you move to the beta build.)
If your Chromebook is built on Hatch and you did not receive the Android 11 updated version in the beta build, you should delete the existing Android setup, and then you need to do the re-installation of the android setup. To re-install, open Settings and go to Apps, then tap on Remove Play Store, then select Remove. After that, turn on the Play Store under the Apps page. Remember that re-installation will remove all your Android apps.
Follow the exact steps mentioned above to easily update your system.
