New Chromebook Plus for educators, powered by AI

Abstract drawing of Chromebooks with images depicting Chromebook features for teachers

Last year, we introduced Chromebook Plus, a new class of powerful laptops perfect for teachers and education staff. With 2X better performance, displays, memory and storage along with options for touchscreen convertibles and stylus, they make wireless whiteboarding and instruction anywhere in the classroom easier and more accessible, starting at just $350.

Today, we’re announcing the next set of Chromebook Plus computers from Acer with new features powered by Google AI to help educators and education leaders.

Many of the Chromebook features that you already use are already powered by Google AI, including accessibility tools like live captions and reading mode, content creation tools like Screencast with its new text-based video editing capabilities and sustainability features like adaptive battery charging. With Chromebook Plus, we’re introducing powerful new generative AI capabilities to help save educators, staff and admins time and be even more productive.

Lead, manage and secure devices with Google Admin console

With so many schools now providing Chromebooks for every student, we’re working hard to make device management more efficient and save time for IT admins and school leaders. Device Hub will centralize fleet information for IT admins and provide notifications and recommendations based on potential issues to make fleet management more seamless.

Later this year, we’ll be sharing a host of other AI driven features built directly into Google Admin console to make managing your devices easier. These features will all be available with Chrome Education Upgrade.
