We heard months back about Google working on a new feature called “Campfire” for Chromebooks which will allow users to dual boot with Windows 10 on a separate partition. If the latest media reports are anything to go by, the company is currently testing the dual boot feature on Eve, the Pixelbook.

With this new dual-boot mode, Chromebook users with Intel processors and a minimum of 64GB of SSD and 4GB of RAM will be able to run Windows 10.

The dual booting option was earlier dubbed Alt-OS, but the recent developments at Google show a more descriptive “Dual-Boot”.

If all goes as planned by Google, Eve will be the first machine to benefit from the new feature, followed by others in the near future. To be able to dual boot, a device requires specific hardware (40 gigs of storage and 4 gigs of ram, this is something Eve has).

Speculations are rife that Google could announce the Project Campfire at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 in January.
