On the developer channel, Chromebook starts receiving an update to Nougat 7.1.1 for Chrome OS. The first device getting the update is ASUS Chromebook Flip C302. That’s a great news Flip C302 owners to get the latest update.
Although the developer channel is not stable, updates either have been mostly less stable canary channel or need extra steps and methods to install them. For instance, command tools are often required to manually launch the Play Store in some Chromebooks to get the update.
That was not the case this time around, users can wait for Nougat to be brought into the Chrome OS stable channel. But those have a technical knowledge or who are eager to install the update, it should be there. However, almost of updates will need some time to hit your device in case you want to switch channels, as it will usually be rolled out over time. Moreover, although it isn’t a rare issue for a cloud-based device like a Chromebook, switching to the developer channel will reset their Chromebook, which means doing this will wipe anything saved directly to the Chromebook and remove all accounts you already logged in, so you should be careful. That said, backing up any important data on your ChromeBook is recommended.
