Chrome OS devices users will soon have an update available. And a stable update at that. The details are coming by way of the Google Chrome Releases blog where they note that Chrome 20 has arrived in the Stable Channel. This update will bring the version up to 20.0.1322.454 with a platform version of 2268.105.0.

User with any of the above can expect to receive the update sometime over the next several days. And best of all — this update is bringing some new features. According to the changelog, here is what you can expect to see once updated.

  • Support for Google Drive
