The new Chromebook Plus devices offer a lot of new features including AI assistance with images and writing and the capability to sync files. That means you can still access your Google Drive files even if you don’t have the Internet.

But what about people who already own a Chromebook? Will they have to buy a new device to use these features? Google says some Chromebook owners are eligible to upgrade to the latest operating system, which will begin to roll out on October 17.

Here’s a list of the models eligible for the operating system upgrade.
