After using Chromebooks for nearly two years, one of my biggest wish list items is on the way: This week, Google said offline support for Google Play Movies and TV shows is nearly here. While you can currently stream video content on a Chrome OS device, downloading video purchases and rentals isn’t yet possible. It’s a big feature gap — here’s what you can currently do offline on a Chromebook — considering you watch offline content on phones, tablets and other computers.
Support for the offline content is due in the next few weeks according to Google and we discuss the development in this week’s Chrome Show podcast. Tune in below or download the show to hear more about that topic as well as hands-on thoughts of the Dell Chromebook 11, the final pricing of LG’s Chromebase and more Chrome OS collaboration between Google and Intel.
