The best Chromebooks are better than lightweight laptops in terms of speed and simplicity; they are adaptable devices that can help us get through the day. Although I didn’t spend the whole day on the Chromebook.

As long as my Chromebook is plugged into a power source and is not being actively used, it will play a dual role as a smart display. Because of the integration with Google Assistant and the Chromebook’s environmental display function, everyone must spend 30 seconds visiting the “Settings” application to open it.

How to turn on your Chromebook’s Ambient Mode

  • Open the Settings app from the app drawer or quick settings menu.
  • Tap or scroll down to the Personalization section.
  • Tap Screen saver.
  • Tap the toggle to turn it on.
  • Select the Background images you want to use.
  • To edit which photos you see, tap the right arrow to the right side of the selected source.
  • If you’re using Google Photos, tap the folders you want Ambient Display to pull from.
  • If you’re using Art gallery, tap Earth and space if you only want to see art and landscape images rather than satellite photography.
  • Tap the Device section.
  • Tap Power.
  • Tap the drop-down menu next to While charging.
  • Tap Keep display on.

Technically, this is all you should do. By default, Google Assistant is set to detect as “OK Google” when you plug in or charge a Chromebook so that it will not affect the battery level when you travel. The environmental display will only be triggered when your computer is idle but not sleeping-we set it to appear only after plugging in the computer.
