Stable Chrome OS support for Linux apps is coming in the next release

Three years after Chrome OS began supporting Linux applications, Google announced at its Google I / O event that it will finally leave beta mode in the "next version" of Chrome OS. The next version, according to Android Central is 91, and is expected to arrive in the "next few weeks".

As The Verge recalls, Chrome OS as an operating system has always been Linux- based, but since 2018 its Linux development environment offers access to a Linux terminal, which developers can use to run command-line tools.

The feature also allows you to install and launch full Linux apps alongside your other apps. In addition to Linux apps, Chrome OS also supports Android apps.

Emilie Roberts, representative of the Google developer area, said during the I / O meeting that in addition to the end of the beta, there will be a series of improvements in the functionality of Linux in Chrome OS. Among them are a new update process that promises to be faster and that updates the Linux container at the same time as the Chrome OS itself.

Windows 10 compatibility with Linuix applications



This announcement from Google comes a year after Microsoft announced support for Linux GUI apps on Windows 10.

Microsoft recently began testing Linux GUI applications on Windows, and the feature is expected to roll out to all users later this year. It is part of an initiative to support developers that Microsoft launched in 2016.
