Chromebooks Will Soon Support Parallel Android Apps with the Chrome OS 64 Update

At the moment, Chrome OS pauses Android apps when the focus is no longer on them, which means that it’s not possible to run multiple Android apps at the same time. The latest stable release of Chrome OS is version 63 and was released on December 15, a day after Google promoted Chrome OS 64 to the Beta channel. With Chrome OS 64, you can enable the Android Parallel Tasks feature in the Google Play store settings, but only if you enabled developer mode on your Chromebook. At least this is how it works in Chrome OS 64 Beta, as you can see in the video below, courtesy of ChromeUnboxed.
