Android 11 FAQ
Hello! I'm making this post to help clear up any misconceptions about ARCVM/Android 11 on Chrome OS.
Q: What devices currently have Android 11?
A: The only devices that currently have Android 11 are as follows:
- ASUS Chromebox 4
- ASUS Fanless Chromebox
- Acer Chromebox CXI4
- HP Chromebox G3
- IdeaPad Flex 5i Chromebook (13", 5)
- HP Chromebook x360 14c
- HP Pro c640 Chromebook
- ASUS Chromebook Flip C436FA
- HP Elite c1030 Chromebook
- HP Chromebook x360 13c
- Acer Chromebook 712 [C871]
- Acer Chromebook Spin 713 (CP713-2W)
- Samsung Galaxy Chromebook
- Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2
NOTE: These devices MUST be on the beta channel to receive Android 11.
Q: What devices are projected to get Android 11?
A: Please see this. Do know that this list is NOT a confirmation and can change at any time.
Q: I have one of the supported devices. Should I switch to the beta channel?
A: I'd advise against it. I've personally had ARCVM stop working on me entirely, not to mention that it uses more RAM than it needs to. If you decide to switch to beta on your device and notice that it does have Android 11, please tell me the full device model in the comments.
Q: Why is Android 11 not in the stable 90 release?
A: ARCVM is still a major work in progress. It is simply not ready for a stable release.
Q: Okay. So it's not coming out with Chrome 90. So when will it?
A: We're not sure. But it may start rolling out to more devices in the beta channel in the upcoming months.
