Android-apps-Chromebook

Google announced today that it’s bringing Android apps to Chromebook users with the first four apps now available for the platform. The apps come to Chrome OS users as a result of Google’s App Runtime for Chrome (Beta) project launched earlier this year at Google I/O as an effort to bring Android apps over to Chromebooks. The first first set of apps include:

  • Duolingo – a fun and free way to learn a new language before your next trip
  • Evernote – write, collect and find what matters to you, with a full-size keyboard and touchscreen
  • Sight Words – a delightful way for you to help improve your child’s reading skills
  • Vine – create short, beautiful, looping videos in a simple and fun way

The four new apps are available for Chromebook users to download in the Chrome Web Store.

Google plans to work with more Android developers and release more apps in the coming months. You can suggest Android apps that you’d like to use on your Chromebook to Google here.
