The strange arrival of Chrome OS 86 and the return of Chromebook inventory
1 hr 8 min

This week on The Chrome Cast, our conversation is as varied as the week's content has been.  From a new version of Chrome OS arriving, rolling out slowly, being not-really-delayed, and finally landing for nearly everyone, it has been an odd release cycle to be sure.  Additionally, we've seen the confident return of Chromebook inventory in stores, leading to pre-Black Friday sales on all sorts of devices that we've simply not seen for quite some time.
