Normally updates are spread over a period of several days. Because of the nature of this update, the sooner the update is applied the better.
It is important to regularly shutdown Chromebook devices so that important updates can be downloaded and applied. Just closing the lid on a Chromebook does not shutdown a device, rather the device enters a suspended stated. Using the power button on the right side of the device or select the Shutdown option in the lower left of the screen after Sign Out.
As we enter flue/cold season, it is a good time to use a microfiber/ or soft cloth that is gently damp to wipe down the entire Chromebook. This preventative care will help maintain the durability of the machine along with keeping germs from growing.
