    Google Has No Plans To Continue The Legacy Of Google Chromebooks

    March 2, 2017

    Well, the Google Chromebooks came into the market in the year 2013. Those were the first ones to bear the brand name Pixel. The Chromebooks came with Chrome OS with high-end hardware. The Pixel 2 came out two years later. It was one of the first consumer products that had the USB Type-C ports.

    Now it looks like there will no more be a third version of Google Chromebooks in Pixel brand. In fact, the company is not sure of any future Google laptops. Google announced in a small meeting in the Mobile World Congress Barcelona on 1St March 2017 (today) that the Google Chromebook and original products bearing the Pixel name will no longer be available.

    Google doesn’t have any plans for flagship laptops

    The Pixel smartphones released recently are doing well. The company is facing some issues with the supply and demand. Google might develop other gadgets with Google’s own software and hardware, but laptops are not likely to come again. When asked, Google said, all Chromebooks are out in the market, and there are no plans to make any more. If you go to Google Store, you will not find Google Laptops for sale, but there is plenty of third party Chromebooks available there.

    No Andromeda for Google Chromebooks

    Speaking about the Chrome OS, the company said,

    Chrome OS is a massive initiative in the enterprise. Google hasn’t backed away from laptops. We have the number two market share in the U.S. and U.K., but we have no plans for Google-branded laptops.

    Pixel was an example of what premium Google Chromebooks will look like. The first version of Chromebooks didn’t sell in high numbers. And they were never meant to be.

    Those laptops were intended to be aspirational. It was the first touch screen laptop. The second version of Chromebooks was much better. It came with USB-C charging facility. The Pixel 3 was more than a Chromebook. It would have become the first laptop of Andromeda because of Google’s combination of Chrome OS and Android. It seems like there won’t an Andromeda!

    When asked if Google is not making their laptops, Rick Osterloh said, they are not completely ruling out making laptops in future. But one thing is for sure; Google will shift their laptops from the Pixel Moniker. From a branding standpoint, Google might make plans to reserve the Pixel name for the flagship smartphones only. Even if Google Chromebooks are no more, the Chrome OS is here to stay.

    Chromebooks bite the dust

    Frederic Lardinois

    In a small meeting with journalists at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today, Google’s senior vice president for hardware Rick Osterloh dropped a little bit of news: It looks like the Pixel laptop — Google’s premium Chromebook and the original product bearing the Pixel name — has hit the end of the line after just two iterations.

    The Pixel brand these days is now being used for Google’s new line of smartphones, which have done pretty well in the market, although the company has had some issues with supply and keeping up with demand, Osterloh said.

    There may be future products that use the Pixel name and concept of building Google products from the ground up, integrating Google’s software into Google’s own hardware, but he hinted that laptops are not likely to be one of those categories.

    When asked if Google had plans to produce any more Pixel laptops, Osterloh said that the company had “no plans to do one right now.” He added that the versions that are already out in the market have totally sold out and that there are no plans to make any more of those, either. Indeed, if you go to the Google Store today, you won’t find any Pixel laptops for sale, though there are plenty of third-party Chromebooks available there.

    The company is not, of course, talking about Chrome OS. “Chrome OS is a huge initiative in the company,” Osterloh said. “Google hasn’t backed away from laptops. We have the number two market share in the U.S. and U.K. — but we have no plans for Google-branded laptops.”

    The Pixel was always meant to be Google’s example of what a premium Chromebook could look like. They were never intended to sell in high numbers — and few people were probably willing to drop $1,299 for a laptop that only let you run the Chrome browser when it first launched in 2013. Instead, the Pixel was always meant to be aspirational. It was the first Chromebook to feature a touch screen, for example. It was also the first hardware device that showed that Google could build vertically integrated devices that could compete with the likes of Apple.

    The second iteration of the Pixel Chromebook built upon the foundation of the first one. In terms of design, they were almost identical. This one, however, was even more powerful. It also featured USB-C charging ahead of virtually any other laptop line. The Pixel 2, however, was discounted without a replacement last August. In addition to using the Pixel brand for its new phone, Google is also still selling the Pixel C tablet.

    Update: Never say never! Osterloh sent us this additional comment after we published: “Regarding the future of Google-branded laptops (whether called Pixel or not), I should clarify that we don’t have any plans to discuss at this time.”

    Farewell, Pixel.

    No, not the Pixel phones. We're talking about Google's high-end, $1,299 Pixel Chromebooks. Long before Google started shipping flagship phones under the Pixel brand, it offered Pixel laptops.

    Google wants to chop the entire Pixel line down to just the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, as well as the Pixel C tablet, though there may be other devices carrying the brand name in the future. Just don't expect laptops to be one of them. So, if you're looking to snag a Pixel Chromebook before it's too late... you're simply out of luck. The company sold out of them last summer and has yet to restock them.

    This doesn't mean Chrome OS is done. It just means Google is getting out of the Chromebook-making game; third-party manufacturers will still make and ship their own Chrome OS-powered machines and Chromebooks.

    Google senior vice president for hardware Rick Osterloh acknowledged at MWC 2017 in Barcelona that the Pixel smartphones have been suffering from supply and demand issues.
