Since it was introduced in 2013, Google's Chromebook Pixel line has always been an option for people who love Chrome OS and high-quality hardware and aren't worried about paying money to get both. But according to a statement from Google given to VentureBeat, Google has discontinued 2015's Chromebook Pixel 2, and there's no replacement in sight.
â€œWeâ€™re committed to the Pixel program but we donâ€™t have plans to restock the Pixel 2,â€ a Google spokesperson said.
The team that developed the Pixel and Pixel 2 also designed the more recent Pixel C, an Android tablet that almost definitely began life as a Chrome OS device. It's possible that Google intends to refocus the Pixel brand around Android rather than Chrome OS, given that Android will soon have a very desktop-y windowed multitasking mode. Google is also said to be merging Android and Chrome OS at some point in the future.
