Google already announced that it worked on implementing support for Linux apps on Chrome OS during the Google I/O conference last month, and the first Chromebook to run Linux apps is Google's Pixelbook, as expected, and the functionality was later discovered to be available on the Samsung Chromebook Plus as well. According to XDA-Developers, who spotted a new commit in Chromium Gerrit, an upcoming version of Google's Chrome OS operating systems for Chromebooks will explicitly turn on VM extensions for all Chromebooks under the Nami generation, enabling support for running Linux apps out-of-the-box.
