Google started making Android applications – including Vine, Evernote and Duolingo available in Chrome OS in 2014, as part of a limited test. Last year, Google began allowing developers to execute tests on your Android apps in Chrome with the runtime application to Chrome (ARC).
There is now a possibility that google may soon break down the barriers between its two operating systems, and users of the Chrome OS may access Android apps on Google Play Store. As seen by a Reddit user this weekend, Chromebooks running version 51 Chrome OS are showing a check box in your settings menu that appears “Enable Android applications to run on your Chromebook.”
The option disappears quickly, but the Chrome OS source code seems to indicate that Chromebook users will soon have access to “over a million” games and applications on the Google Play Store. The specific version of Chrome OS on the resource appears briefly, is only available on the Developer Channel release at the time, and those users who have been able to activate it, say it only appears a tutorial before closing automatically.
Although Google announced that the two projects would be kept separate, this change would be good news for users of Chrome OS, which could have access to a bigger and better store. Perhaps this new feature is described in the event Google I / O , to be held in May this year.
