Unlocking a Chromebook with an Android phone moves forward

After months of waiting, Google now seems to be moving quickly when it comes to unlocking Chromebooks with trusted Android devices. Mention of the feature appeared as far back as April and finally arrived in the Chrome OS Dev channel a few weeks ago. Now, you can use with the more stable Beta channel of Chrome OS. It could be in the next major Stable channel release as a result.

We discuss how to set up the┬áSmart Lock┬áprocess on this week’s Chrome Show podcast, and report on some of the new [company]Google[/company] Chromebooks you can expect at the Consumer Electronics Show next month. Tune in below or download the podcast here to listen in.
