The Google’s desktop operating system was available for personal computers till today, but hasn’t made that much of which it has grabbed with its browser. So, it is said that Google planning to foled its Chrome OS into its Android mobile OS, according to the people familiar with this matter, a sign of the growing dominance of mobile computing.
If this is the matter to be believed, then Google is expected to release an early version of the Chrome OS for computers and cellphones next year and the final version of it in 2017. It’s a matter of time, the Google’s two operating systems will be merged into one, said be in the process of mixing ChromeOS and Android.
Combining the two operating systems means setting up Android to run on laptops and desktop computers, which would require big changes, as well as supporting the Google Play Store. Chromobooks will reportedly receive a new name to reflect the new OS. With a preview likely to be demonstrated at Google I/O next year.

Android was an almost retro approach within the company because it focused on devices that only worked when software and apps were downloaded onto them. Step towards access
The new Android version will also give PC users access to Google’s Play Store, which indeed offers more than one million apps. Google plans to retain the Chrome name for its Internet browser, which runs on both PCs and mobile devices, they said.
The Chrome OS will still remain as an open source operating system that other companies can use to make laptops, and engineers of Google will continue maintaining it. Google also revealed a convertible Android laptop last month, called the Pixel C. Now, it seems like that’s just an early sign of what’s to come.
Google declined to comment on this matter, though. What do you think about its future plans of merging ChromeOS to Android?
