Today, students everywhere are using computers more and more. Not only to complete schoolwork, but even to livestream their lessons. And they’re using the same networks as their parents, guardians and siblings, putting heavy demand on bandwidth.
No matter how today’s students are learning — at home, in a hybrid model or in school — they deserve a clear connection to educators and classmates.

That’s why we’ve been focused on improving Chromebooks, so they can work harder in the background as teaching and learning proceed smoothly.
These Chrome OS updates will help students run video calls at home while they’re using apps like Google Classroom, Docs, Sheets, Slides and other tools, regardless of the device or the strength of their internet connections.
