Android OS and Chrome OS: What is the difference?

by arupchou on December 6, 2010

Android & Chrome OSGoogle’s two most ambitious OS, Android and Chrome (yet to be launched) have created many ripples in the market. Both these OS boasts of exquisite features which aim to enrich experience of users using smartphones or netbooks. While, Android based smartphones are finding huge favors among buyers, Chrome OS has already created much enthusiasm among computer geeks. Though Android and Chrome OS are Linux-based OS, yet there are some basic differences between these two OS. Here we are underlining some of the major differences between both these OS.

  • Linux desktop or Android application will not support Chrome OS

Though Chrome is an OS, yet it is not like traditional OS like Windows. All the apps of Chrome are cloud based, whereas Android apps are Java based. So, it is almost next to impossible that Chrome apps will be running on Android apps. Chrome OS will be running on web based applications only.

  • Chrome targeted to netbooks while Android is for phones and tablets

Google had said initially that Chrome OS has been designed for netbooks, while Android is for smartphones and tablets. However, Google has also expressed its plan to extend Chrome OS beyond netbooks as well.

  • Constant update on Chrome OS

Just like the Chrome browser, it is expected that the Chrome OS will get automatic updates. With Chrome OS, you will not have to wait for different versions like Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The main components of Chrome will be stored in ROM and the software will regularly update itself.

  • Simple interface as compared to Android

As compared to Android, Chrome OS will have a much easy interface. What it means is that you will see a Chrome browser window with a drop-down menu, which will host various apps. These apps will be running in browser style tabs. You will also get notifications at the bottom of your screen about e-mails and other messages.

Since Chrome is a cloud based OS, therefore boot up time for the OS will be much less. Moreover, since the application and personal data will not be stored on the system hence, you are very much secured regarding virus threats. Undoubtedly, Chrome OS and Android have different requirements and work differently. But both will consolidate Google’s market position as one of the innovator of value rich products.
