ChromeOS Flex is a version of ChromeOS that's designed to let you modernise your digital signage devices at no additional cost. ChromeOS Flex is a fast, secure, cloud-first, easy-to-manage operating system for Macs and PCs and is designed to refresh older devices, increasing their performance for more efficient teaching and learning.

Other benefits to ChromeOS Flex, as outlined in Google’s documentation, are:

  • Proactive security: ChromeOS Flex provides much-needed protection from growing threats, including ransomware, malware, and employee errors.

  • Fast deployment & easy management: ChromeOS Flex can be rapidly deployed via USB or through your company network. With Chrome Enterprise Upgrade, you can manage apps and policies from anywhere, even the beach.

  • Fast, modern work experiences: Devices don’t slow down over time. Background updates reduce device downtime and improve productivity, so you can spend extra time relaxing.

  • Sustainable for your business and planet: Breathe new life into existing hardware to reduce e-waste, energy consumption, and maintain clear blue skies.

Managing ChromeOS Flex devices alongside other ChromeOS devices you already use is easy: management and registration are done with the Google Admin Console.
