Google Play Starts Bringing Android Apps To Chromebooks

An anonymous reader quotes a report from VentureBeat: As promised, Google has finally brought the Google Play store to Chrome OS. Android apps, Android games, and media content from the store are all now finally available on Chromebooks running the latest stable build. But that still doesn’t mean all Chromebook owners can use the store. This continues to be a gradual rollout — even on the stable channel, Google is limiting the launch in multiple ways. “A beta release of the Play store is available to users now on the Acer R11 and Asus Flip (and coming soon to Pixel 2015) and can be enabled from the Settings page,” a Google spokesperson told VentureBeat. “The team is hard at work making the experience great for users before making the Play Store available by default on these Chromebooks.” That’s right — even though we’re still talking about just three devices, the Play store is disabled by default. Once you’ve updated to version 53.0.2785.129 (make sure to switch back to the stable channel if you aren’t already on it), you’ll have to enable the Play Store in Chrome Settings.
