More Than Half of Chromebooks Now Support Android Apps and Google Play Store

The list of Chromebook models that allow users to install Android apps from the Google Play Store has grown today to a total of 59, as shown on the “Chrome OS Systems Supporting Android Apps” wiki page maintained by Google. Most of these support Android apps straight from the Stable channel of Chrome OS. However, a couple of Chromebooks still have to be moved to the Beta Chrome OS channel to be able to install and run Android apps from Google Play store. These include the Acer Chromebook 11 (C740) and Dell Chromebook 13 (7310), and, as Google notes, this doesn’t mean they’ll get Stable channel support on the next Chrome OS release.
