ChromeOS Update Brings Multi-Sign In, But Not For Every Chromebook

Google has updated ChromeOS overnight, bringing with it Multi Sign In support, Google Drive support in Incognito mode and a host of bug fixes. Curiously, however, there’s a few Chromebooks that won’t be getting the update right away.

Google’s Chrome Releases blog notes the details of the update. There’s a number of changes, covering:

Multi Sign in support – Easily use multiple accounts with your Chrome Device
New “App info” view in the Chrome launcher
Settings appear in a window, not tab
Save to Google Drive in Incognito mode
Client Certificate Management for organizations using the chrome.enterprise.platformKeys API
Managed Bookmarks – Push and manage bookmarks for your organization

It brings the stable version of ChromeOS up to version 37.0.2062.119 and should be an automatic update for most Chromebooks, excluding the Acer C7 Chromebook, Samsung Chromebook Series 5 and HP Pavilion Chromebook. No word on what’s causing the delay for those particular models, which will presumably be updated in due course.
