  • Google is looking to add dual-boot capabilities to Chromebooks

In April this year, there were rumors circulating that Google was working on getting Chromebooks to dual boot Windows.

If this is truly a dual-boot Windows 10 and Chrome OS project, it could be similar to Apple's Boot Camp on macOS.

Google may soon allow select users to dual-boot Windows 10 on their Chromebooks through a feature codenamed Campfire.

It has also been discovered that Microsoft's Windows Hardware Certification Kit is in the development builds of Chrome OS, which indicates that Google may be planning on expanding the dual-boot feature to a wider range of Chromebooks rather than just the Pixelbook. It is unclear when Google will take the wraps off this feature, or which Chromebooks will support it, but the actually has a hardware event in a few weeks.

As helpful as a Chromebook may be, there are still some instances where an owner might need or want access to Microsoft's Windows 10 desktop operating system. Exactly how many notebooks will be supported is still up in the air, but initially, it'll probably be limited to quite a small set of more cutting-edge Chromebooks (including the Pixelbook, of course). The system apparently requires a minimum of 40GB storage, so it can allocate 30GB to Windows 10, and the other 10GB to Chrome OS itself. Interestingly, the company is working on multiple variants for the various Chromebook devices on the market.
