/obligatory complaint comment

I can't believe someone typed this post and did not notice it: it says updates for all except for Samsung Chromebooks (God knows why). But then hey, what's this? A fix for Samsung Chromebooks! Uh? I thought they didn't have the update? Why should you include a fix if the broken ones aren't updated?

Andrew Rabon said...

It also lists a fix for ARM devices, lol.

Is this a stable update, or a beta update? lists 25.0.1364.87 as a beta update.

My Chromebook updated to this Stable OS version. Is that bad?

Zach Frazier said...

Why not Samsung Chromebooks?

Justin said...

I've also got a samsung chromebook. can i expect an update soon as well?

to be honest i bought the chromebook partially because it had hdmi support but so far it's been terrible and i've been really disappointed

Andrew Rabon said...

No but my ARM Samsung is still on 23, and says it's up to date. :(

GIFs still suck. >_<

Running 25 on my Samsung ARM as of 10 minutes ago - so far so good. Did this resolve the native Netflix issue? (I dropped my netflix subscription so I cant check).

Netflix still does not work on the arm version - just gave it a whirl.
