Yesterday during I/O’s opening keynote, Google announced that it’s bringing several Android apps to Chrome OS later this fall. In a demonstration of what can be expected, Android frontman Sundar Pichai did a walkthrough of Evernote, Vine and Flipboard running on a Chromebook. This new move falls in line with Google’s new Material Design initiative and its focus on unifying the search giant’s different platforms.

No doubt the trio of apps demoed by Pichai are among some of the most popular pieces of software found in the Play Store, it’s possible that they’re not your cup of tea and Google understands that. To help developers bring more Android apps to Chromebooks, the company has launched a new form that lets you nominate the software that you’d like to see ported to Chrome OS.

Google notes that it won’t be able to immediately support every Android app requested, so there’s no guarantee that your suggestions will be in the first wave of new software. In the meantime, the company will use the feedback collected by this form to find out what apps people would use the most on Chrome OS, so be sure to cast your vote.
