It’s no surprise that Android apps on Chrome OS makes Google’s browser-oriented operating system much more useful, but unfortunately, they’ve only been made available on a select number of Chromebooks. This changes today as Google has announced all Chromebooks introduced in 2017 and beyond will support the functionality, making the light-weight OS more capable.
All Chromebooks launching in 2017 and after […] will work with Android apps at a time to be announced in the future.
The latest Chromebooks to support Android apps and the Play Store were Samsung’s Chromebook Plus and Pro, each including a 360-degree hinge, stylus, and 4GB of RAM. It’s likely that Samsung will follow up with additional laptops powered by Chrome OS down the line in 2017, and we can already confirm that they’ll support Android apps.
Do note that while all 2017 Chromebook and Chrome OS devices will support Android apps, 2016 and earlier models may not. Therefore, click here to see if your computer is on the list to receive the functionality.
