Android and Chrome OS Could Be Combined As Early As Next Year


Google’s Chrome OS and Android Operating System on the surface look to be very different, but that could soon change. Sources from The Wall Street Journal are reporting that over the past several years, Google has been working to unify the two operating systems as a way to help mitigate the amount of platforms that the company currently operates.

While nothing concrete is known, this endeavor has been hinted at for a while and signs of it can be seen on Chrome OS, with its ability to run Android applications.

Now what this means for phones and tablets in the future is uncertain, however, next  year might very well be an exciting one for both Android and Chrome OS users with the public unveiling of the new OS said to happen in 2016 with an official release rumored to be sometime in 2017.

So what’s your take on it? Are you excited about the prospect of a more unified Google ecosystem? What would you like to see from the potential merger?
