Google will be adjusting the release cycle for Chrome OS later this year, moving to a schedule where it launches a new release every four weeks, the company announced on Friday.
â€śTo deliver new features more rapidly to consumers while also continuing to prioritize the key pillars of Chrome OS â€“ security, stability, speed and simplicity â€“ Chrome OS will move to a 4-week stable channel starting with M96 in Q4,â€ť Chrome OS release TPM lead Marina Kazatcker said in a blog post. For enterprise and education users who may not want that fast of a release cycle, Google also plans to introduce a new update channel with a 6-month cadence by the time of the M96 release.
The speed of Chrome OSâ€™ release schedule will bring it on par with the Google Chrome browser, which will also be transitioning to a four-week release schedule. For the Chrome browser, that change will kick in starting in the third quarter of this year.
