The files app now has support for WebDAV thanks to a new app that makes use of the fileSystemProvider API.

+Yoichiro Tanaka, the man behind the popular Dropbox, OneDrive, and sFTP apps, has just released "WebDAV File System", a simple app that mounts WebDAV shares directly into the files app on Chrome OS.

For power users, it is worth noting that the lock operation isn't supported, and only basic authentication is currently supported. Hopefully the app will expand to include those features soon.

Curious about WebDAV? Wikipedia is happy to provide background reading:

You can install the app from the Chrome Web Store:

You can also find the source code on GitHub:

Want to help make Chrome OS better? Try the Chrome OS Beta Channel!

The stable channel is alright, but everyone knows that beta channel users have more fun! Rolling out soon to the beta channel are some really cool new features:

Chrome Launcher 2.0

The new launcher is the best way to start new activities on Chrome OS, like performing a Google search or launching apps.  It's fast, simple, and helps you get things done. We've enhanced search to help you find what you are looking for faster, put the apps you most often use right at your fingertips, and brought the power of Google Now to your Chromebook.  Rolling out to Beta within the week.

Password-protected ZIP support

You can now unzip password-protected ZIP files in a snap!

Timezone Autoupdate

Users travelling with a Chromebook are now in for a treat!  Chrome OS will automatically detect a change in location and update your system’s timezone.

Material Design

Files App is the first app to get a fresh coat of paint. Be on the lookout for others soon! 


Spot an issue while using the beta channel? Head to the unofficial Chrome OS Testing group to report it and share workarounds:


Want to upgrade to the beta channel? Get started here:


Warning! If you switch to Beta, and it’s too bumpy for you, you can switch back. Just know that switching from Beta back to Stable Channel will delete all local data on your Chromebook, such as downloaded files, photos, owner permissions, and saved networks for every account. It will be like getting a new Chromebook: all users will have to re-add their Google accounts.


You can find more information about the Chrome OS Beta Channel here:


Happy beta testing!

Chrome OS Testing: The known issue of the wallpaper app's icon not displaying correctly has now been fixed!

As part of improvements to M42, a new icon for the wallpaper app was added. Unfortunately that process didn't go smoothly, so there was a short period of time where the default "no icon available" icon was displayed instead. Once a fix was created in M43, it still needed to be merged back to M42. Thankfully, that has now been completed and the icon should be working for everyone.

A major thanks goes out to everyone that helped to track this. You can find the full thread on the testing community:

Nice podcast. In regards to the DOM Distiller, our Reader Mode, I enabled it as soon as it was available on Chrome for Android. The feature is available on some sites, not all or every site. I haven't checked to make a distinction about the ads on the sites. I will add that a Reader Mode Chrome extension has been available from Evernote for some time now. I really don't think Google views Reader Mode as a threat to ad placement and click through within content.

What happens when you plug two chargers into the new Chromebook Pixel?

Note: Disappointingly, this explanation does not include any risk of explosions.

The new Chromebook Pixel features two USB Type-C ports that can be used for charging, one placed on each side of the device. This design has made many people curious about what would happen if you plug two chargers in at the same time.

Some people have churned the data and come to the conclusion that it will charge twice as fast up until the very second that it explodes (in 4K resolution, of course). Others have compared it to an oven, where doubling the temperature doesn't necessarily mean the food will cook in half the time.

Reality is boring, however. In truth, the new Chromebook Pixel is smart enough to auto-detect which connected charger can supply the most power (up to 60W) and then switch to using it exclusively. At no time should the Pixel draw a charge from both ports, just the one supplying the most power.

That should help to reduce the chance of explosions, but don't allow it to damper your outlook on the charging time of a Pixel 2. The included "fast charge" technology can (under ideal conditions) supply 2 hours worth of a charge in just 15 minutes. That might just be faster than plugging two chargers into an average laptop ;)


This mystery was solved by a Chromium developer in a reddit thread:

Great post. I'm actually impressed with the boring reality. Somebody actually gave some serious thought to the fact that some crazy smart people would plug two chargers in.
Add a comment...
Let's talk about the Pixel charger.

Yes, it uses the new Type-C design and allows for USB charging. That's excellent! Many reviews seem to have skipped just how generally awesome the charger is though. It's a really cool piece of engineering.

The Pixel arrives with two separate cables. One includes the "brick" and a small plug-in piece for use with an outlet. The other cable is an extension, allowing you to make the cord longer (or use an outlet without plugging the brick in directly - handy for power strips).

It's pretty painless to switch between the two, which means that you could carry both with you in a bag. That way if you need to charge but find yourself facing an outlet that the "brick" won't fit into, you can plug in the extension and roll.

As for heat, the charger does get warm to the touch. It's not "hot" by any stretch, but warm just like many other laptop chargers. I'm hopeful that we'll avoid another HP 11 incident :)

Fast charging is definitely a real thing. I haven't done any timed tests (and don't plan to considering others have), but it's much quicker than I'm used to. I'm going to love that.

Another super cool trick I discovered is that the "plug-in" adapters actually fit into a slot that is standard for desktop computer power (US, anyway). I was able to unplug my Chromebox and plug it's power cord into the Pixel brick directly and begin charging. Those cables may be easy to come by if you need a longer cable than the included extension cord can offer.

It's obvious that a lot of time and energy went into making this design as functional as possible.

Now I just need more devices that can accept the Type-C input for charging :)

Chrome OS Testing: Have you ever had an app vanish from your shelf?

We are currently looking for reports from people that have had this happen over on the canary / beta / dev forum. Screenshots and feedback reports (Alt+Shift+I) are even better, should you notice it happen and can act on it :)

If you want to follow the discussion, or add your experience, you can jump into the thread here:

A material design refresh is rolling out now to the Chrome OS Calculator app!

This update brings the app to version 2.0 (previously 1.3.3). Although no changelog is provided, we can clearly see that it contains a visual overhaul. It features slick new animations that are straight out of the material design spec.

If you frequently use the Chrome OS calculator, you may be interested in learning a few of the keyboard shortcuts:

a - All Clear (AC)
c - All Clear (AC)
e - e
n - negate (+/-)
p - Pi (π)
% - %
i - inverse (1/x)
^ - yⁿ
! - !
@ - x²

For users that make use of the Chromevox Chrome OS accessibility option, three additional shortcuts are available:

r - repeat the last spoken phrase
s - speak the current state of the calculator
t - speak the current degrees/radians mode

Grab the updated app from the Chrome Web Store here:

Interested in making Chrome OS better? Join Chrome OS Testing, a brand new (unofficial) community for canary / dev / beta testers!

Chrome OS is a rapid release product with major software updates shipping to users roughly every 6 weeks. That's fast!

Fast updates can sometimes result in bugs though, and bugs are bad. To help combat this, Chrome OS allows anyone to test new versions of Chrome OS before they're pushed to everyone else. This is called the "channel" system, with each major update spending about 6 weeks on each release channel.

At the very top of this system is the bleeding-edge canary channel, which is prone to frequent big issues. Next up is the dev(eloper) channel, which is more stable, but still considered unstable for general usage. Then there's the beta channel, which is where a final layer of polish is applied before an update is pushed to everyone via the stable channel. Each update is promoted from one channel to another on a schedule.

Many Chromebook owners have already discovered these channels and are actively contributing feedback about the unstable versions. That's great! Unfortunately, there isn't really a good place to go to talk to other users running the same beta software to check if a bug is specific to you, or affecting everyone.

Enter Chrome OS Testing, a solution to this problem. The mission of this community is earlier, better detection of issues, reducing the number of issues that make it through to stable releases of Chrome OS.

Participation is completely voluntary, but we would love to make this a warm and welcoming environment for the super savvy to hang out and hunt down bugs.

As noted in the title, this is an unofficial community. It is not endorsed by the Chrome OS team. Leading this project are a handful of top contributors from the support forum who deal with bugs on a daily basis. You can guess why these individuals would want to help stop said bugs as early as possible :)

Does this sound like a community you could see yourself fitting into? Excellent! Come on in, the door is unlocked (*you may need to jiggle the handle - that will be fixed in a maintenance release at a later date).

Feel like you need to learn a little bit more about the release channels before you're ready to jump in? That's okay too! Here's a great resource for learning more:

We hope to see you soon!
