“Hello Chrome OS Community,” posted one of Google’s community managers Wednesday. “Thank you for raising this issue, and for your patience as we work to resolve this. Our team has identified the issue and is rolling out a fix to affected devices.” The issue? ChromeOS users reported the latest updates “cause a Google Play Store service to utilize 100 percent of their CPUs…” according to TechRadar, “making their devices hot and leading to performance issues.” As reported by BleepingComputer, after upgrading their devices to ChromeOS version 85.0.4183.108 and later users have faced a number of issues including apps that are running erratically, devices getting hot, fans running at high speed and batteries draining much too quickly.
