Google for Work’s Chrome Live event happened today, and the Mountain View company took this opportunity to announce many new Chrome-related products for the workplace…
First up is Chromebook integration with Box. Box is one of the better-known cloud storage services, and now, thanks to an app that you can grab on the Chrome web store called Box for Chrome OS beta, you can access all of your Box files through your Chromebook’s native file manager.
Google also announced a new version of Chromebox for meetings that’s bringing face-to-face meetings to bigger rooms. Details are kind of scarce at this point, but Google says the “hardware in the bundle includes a Chromebox powered by Dell, Asus, and HP, a pan tilt zoom camera, and more.”
Also, Google announced that many improvements are coming to Chrome management for Chrome-dedicated devices, and that it’s bringing Chrome management pricing flexibility to more places around the world:
Bringing Chrome management pricing flexibility to more places: We’re adding pricing flexibility to Chromebook management at a subscription fee of $50/year and announcing availability in seven new countries: Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, India, UK and France.
Finally, in case you want to catch the whole event, Google has uploaded the archive to its YouTube channel:
