Google plans to create a universal operating system and till two years Android will debut on laptops. Combining both operating systems means that future Android will power laptops and desktops, which will require major changes and maintenance of Google Play Store. Chrome-book devices will get a new name to reflect the new operating system.

Unified platform named Android will become available to the general public in 2017, but test versions of selected users will come sooner, says the Wall Street Journal. Such a development will allow Google to attract more developers as their applications with some modifications will be able to enjoy much bigger variety of devices.

Google plans to retain the name of the browser Chrome, which enjoyed great popularity among users of PCs and mobile devices. Chrome OS as an open platform for laptops will be able to benefit in the future from other companies, but Google will focus on updated Android operating system in the segment of laptops, according to unofficial information.

Rival Microsoft uses a similar approach in its Windows 10 platform that runs on a variety of devices and allows release of some applications as PC and smartphone. Google also introduced an entirely new Android laptop last month called Pixel C. This seems to have been only an early sign of what will happen. Google spokesperson confirmed to The Verge, that Chrome OS and Android will continue to exist separately, and Chrome OS will not be “killed” entirely at least for now.
