Wacom has announced that the entry-level, non-wireless version of its Intuos drawing tablet has joined the Works With Chromebook program. This means the device is certified to integrate "seamlessly" with Chrome OS PCs via USB type A. This might represent a useful new prospect for beginner artists and creators, not to mention remote educators.

Wacom is an OEM widely acknowledged as a leader in the field of digital stylus, drawing surface and pen-responsive display technology. Therefore, many aspiring creators, artists and teachers on a budget may be glad to learn that its first-party dedicated hardware is starting to become fully compatible with PCs that run Chrome OS.

For example, the base Intuos drawing tablet model has recently been graced with a Works With Chromebook certification. This allows a device in this program to show up and function on a Chrome OS PC on plugging in via a USB port without the need for drivers or other hoops through which to jump.

In the case of the non-wireless Wacom Intuos, its new certification allows it to connect via a USB type A port and set up straight away to use a Chromebook's display to visualize the output with its slim, 4,096-level pressure-sensitive first-party pen.

Furthermore, the Intuos ships with 3-month free trials of the useful remote-working or -learning apps Collaboard, Limnu, Explain Everything and Kami, not to mention Clip Studio Paint, a "powerful" app for graphic-novel-style drawing. The Intuos is available for a recommended price of ~US$80 from online platforms that include Amazon.
