    Hi guys

    Let me introduce myself first, I'm FromNexusToPixel. Nice to meet you all

    I'm planning to buy a Pixel Slate to watch Youtube or Netflix or browse the web while on a plane, but I have things that worry me:

    1- Have the issues that been reported by a number of reviewers been addressed, like the extreme lagging for example?

    2- Now that Google has decided to stop making android tablets, what is the future of the Google Pixel Slate when it comes to software updates?

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Welcome to Android Central! I moved this to the Pixel Slate forum for more specific traffic.

    I've read that there have been some updates to improve some of the jankiness in tablet mode, but I don't have one myself to test out.

    The Slate will still get Chrome OS updates like every other Chromebook for 6.5 years (until 6/2024): https://support.google.com/chrome/a/.../6220366?hl=en

    I have the i5 model and have had no lag of any kind. I don't do anything heavy just media and web browsing.

    I have the official Pixel Keybord cover and the bridge keyboard... the bridge makes it like a traditional Chromebook (more lapable) and the Pixel cover is great for portability.

    Just an FYI, Google announced the other day that some 100+ Chromebook models will receive additional support updates ranging from 6 months to 2 years depending on the model. The Pixel Slate has received an additional 2 years, so the new EOL date is June 2026.
