Google Brings Android Apps To New Chromebooks


Following the launch of Android Apps on the Acer R13 earlier this month, Google has began rolling the Play Store out on a number of chromebooks including the Dell Chromebook 13, Samsung Chromebook 3, ASUS C301SA and HP 13.

To enable the Google Play Store on one of the chromebooks listed above, all you have to do is:

  • Click the bottom right corner of your screen and go to the Settings page
  • Hit the "About Chrome OS" button and then the "More info ..." 
  • Click the "Change channel ..." button and then choose the Click the "Devloper" option
  • Hit the "Change channel" button to confirm and your Chromebook will begin downloading the latest developer channel for device
  • Once the download is finished, you need to reboot your Chromebook, and Voila! you are now in the latest Chrome OS developer channel
  • Click the bottom right corner of your screen and go to the Settings page
  • Look for the "Play store" section and check the box that says "Enable Google Play Store on your Chromebook"
  • Hit the "Get started" button, and after you agree to the terms, you'll see the Play store app open
  • Voila!
Reminder: If the dev channel is just too buggy for you, you can always change it back by going to the "Change channel" section and choosing the "Stable" option to switch over. Some apps need to be updated in order to work with Chrome OS.

That's it, you can now download and install your favorite Android apps and games on your Dell Chromebook 13, Samsung Chromebook 3, ASUS C301SA and HP 13 with more Chromebooks to be added later on.
