Change the channel on your Chromebook

How to access the Stable, Beta or Developer channels in Chrome

Here's how you can change the channel on your Chromebook. You can opt for Stable, Beta or Developer.

1. Go to chrome://help in your browser.

2. Click the More Info link.

3. Select the channel you want to use:



Developer (Unstable)

Previously, you couldn’t easily revert back to a newer channel, but Google has changed how the recovery process works. Now, there’s no reason not to try newer code on your Chromebook: It often gives you early looks at new or upcoming features as they migrate up to the Stable channel.
