Could the Google Chromebook finally be a solid competitor to your typical Windows or Mac based laptop? It's a distinct possibility with Google's latest development. Android apps have finally come to the Google Chrome OS. That's right... you can download Google Play Store apps and run them right on your Chromebook now. Now your Chromebook becomes a very attractive option since it will be able to play Android games and run Android-based productivity apps. This update will become available for the M53 release of Chrome in the developer channel. It will supposedly come in just a few weeks. Google also shared that it will eventually be available for all Chromebooks, although only 3 Chromebooks are supported. We imagine this will be a big boon to the Google Play Store as well. What do you folks think? Does this make you want to run out and buy a Chromebook? Why didn't they do this sooner?
