It’s Official: Chromebooks Will Soon Run Linux Apps and Pixelbook Is the First

We already told you last week that a new Linux Apps feature was spotted in the latest Chrome OS Dev release, and when turned on it lets users run native Linux apps like they would be running their favorite GNU/Linux distribution inside Chrome OS, the Linux-based operating system that powers all Chromebooks. But today Google made everything official and announced at Google I/O 2018 that all Chromebooks will soon be able to run Linux apps. While the Pixelbook appears to be the first to get the support for Linux apps, Google said that more Chromebooks should receive the new feature in the coming months.
