Here is an App to Control Your Chromebook Pixel’s Lightbar

Remember the lightbar that Google put on the Chromebook Pixel just because it is cool? François Beaufort created an app to control those lights.

LightBar, the new Chrome app works only on Pixel though. The HP Chromebook 11 has a similar looking lightbar, but the hardware inside is different, or limited.

Oh, you also need developer mode on the Pixel for this to work.

If you fit into those categories, install the app from here and start playing with your lightbar sequence.

  1. FYI:
    Tried to install, since I’ve got a Pixel in developer mode. Received message stating you have to be on at least version 35 of Chrome OS. So, it does not work for Pixel owners on the stable build. Thanks though, I’ll bookmark it for later.
