One of the advantages that Chromebooks — well, most Chromebooks — offer is the ability to run many of your favorite Android apps alongside Chrome OS windows. In fact, a lot of the more popular Android apps have been optimized for Chrome OS, so they will look perfectly at home on your Chromebook.
Google has a long list of the Chromebooks that can run Android apps, but it’s not difficult to check to see if yours is one of them by doing the following:
- Go to Settings
- Click on the “Apps” link on the left-hand menu
- In the main window, look for “Google Play Store.” (It should be near the top.) If it’s there and it invites you to “Install apps and games from Google Play on your Chromebook,” then you’re ready to go.
