Google today decided to dispel speculation that ChromeOS might be phased out. In a blog post, Google reaffirmed its commitment to ChromeOS and said the desktop platform "is here to stay." Google said it has plans to improve ChromeOS in the near future with the addition of a new media player and a refresh based on Material Design. The search giant said dozens of new ChromeBooks are on tap for 2016, and the company will continue to push out security updates to ChromeOS for at least five years. "While we've been working on ways to bring together the best of both operating systems, there's no plan to phase out Chrome OS," said Google. The comments follow a report from the Wall Street Journal that suggested Google might fold ChromeOS into Android as soon as 2017. Google didn't, however, explicitly deny the accuracy of the Journal's report.
