Recently, Google began the rollout of ChromeOS v75 to the users and the new update was supposed to bring a bunch of new features including the support for third-party cloud services.

Google, however, has now paused the rollout of ChromeOS update. Google usually maintains a two-week gap between Chrome and ChromeOS rollout which means the company was already behind schedule. Unfortunately, users will have to wait a little longer as the rollout has been further delayed. Google hasn’t released an official statement to confirm and justify the action but posts on forums have confirmed that the rollout has been paused due to stability issues. According to users who did receive the update, the new update is acting up and users are experiencing random freezing, icons disappearing and issues with the internet connection.

At this point, there is no word from Google so we don’t know the exact reason for the pause but any of the above-mentioned reasons could be the culprit. It is usually a good idea to wait for a couple of days before installing a major update as those might come with fatal bugs. If you’re one of the unfortunate users then there’s a thread on the Chromebook Forum which should help you revert back to v74.
