Google is all set to bridge all its Android apps to its two operating systems; Chromebook users will be given support to every Android app from the Play Store soon.
According to the reports, news about this development surfaced when a checkbox “Enable Android apps to run on your Chromebook” started appearing in the settings menu of Chromebooks version 51. Though it disappears in seconds, Chrome OS source code has tipped off with this move giving Chromebooks users access to about a million games and Google Play Store.
Currently, the checkbox option is available in the developing mode of Chrome OS version 51; when enabled, it runs a tutorial before closing down automatically. However, no official word came from Google about its launch as of yet, however, it seems they are eyeing on I/O conference next month.
Earlier in 2014, Google had experimented with Android apps like Vine, Evernote and others that had the support of Chrome OS on a trial basis that was extended in April 2015 by the launch of ARC (App Runtime for Chrome) Welder app.
Google is going to break down barriers once it sets to keep the two operating systems separate. It is indeed great news and a bigger opportunity for Chrome OS users. Google Play Store has a huge user base since the platform gives access to a variety of apps, from gaming to music to photos, videos and a lot more.
At present, with millions of such apps, it is considered as the biggest app store in this space.
