Google gets Neverware, an organization that transforms old PCs into Chromebooks
- December 18, 2020
Neverware declared in a FAQ that it’s presently essential for Google. Neverware, situated in New York City, makes a software application considered CloudReady that permits you to change over a PC into a system that runs Chrome OS. In its FAQ, Neverware states that it and its CloudReady software are “officially part of Google and the Chrome OS team.”
CloudReady offers a free version for individual use, as well as paid levels for enterprise and education. The thought is that organizations and schools (as well as people) can change over old, slow systems into Chromebooks instead of tossing them out — Chrome OS is a less requesting operating system for these machines to run than Windows 10 is.
As indicated by Neverware’s FAQ, very little will change for current CloudReady clients soon. The organization’s website, forums, customer support, and admin portal will keep on working obviously, however it appears to be that they’ll ultimately relocate over to Google’s services.
As the About Chromebooks site takes note of, some of the software that Neverware makes could help Google keep on pushing Chrome OS updates to older gadgets, expanding the time period where some Chromebooks can get the most recent software. (Google hasn’t said anything of the sort, so that is simply hopeful speculation until further notice).
Google and Neverware are all around familiar — Google led an investment round in the startup in 2017.
