The Pixel C has had a bit of a rough run. The device kind of landed in no-man’s land upon its launch, nestling awkwardly in the wasteland between Tablet and Chromebook. One of the reasons that many people speculated that it was such a strange device is that the original intent for the Pixel C was supposedly to run Chrome OS. Now that supposed intent can be actualized with Remix OS, which is essentially the closest you can get to Chrome OS.
That’s right. Jide’s desktop-styled skin of Android has been updated to be more in alignment with Android Marshmallow and as such it is now available for the Pixel C. If you’re interested in giving this OS a spin on your HTC Nexus 9, you can now do that too.
If you want to see how your device feels with a more desktopy feel, head on over to Remix OS’s Facebook announcement post to give it a whirl. This software is currently only available via torrents. If you need a walkthrough on how to get this running on your Nexus 9 or Pixel C, then Jide has put together a handy tutorial on how to flash Remix OS onto your device right over here.
