Chrome OS and Android Won’t Merge, Google Chairman Says

eric-schmidt

Google doesn’t have plans to merge its mobile operating system, Android, with its desktop operating system Chrome OS, the company’s chairman Eric Schmidt recently said. There has long been rampant speculation that Google has plans to combine the two operating systems, especially as Android becomes more powerful.

Schmidt did suggest that the two will continue to share features, however. That’s no surprise, especially considering new applications such as Google Keep, which allow you to keep notes in sync across various devices. Chrome OS also provides quick access to Google Drive, Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs and other applications, all of which are available on Android.

The comments were made while Eric Schmidt was visiting India, where he also shot down rumors that he plans to sell off his ownership in Google and leave the firm entirely. “Google is my home,” he told Reuters.
