How to Install Android Apps on Your Chromebook?

- Advertisement - data-full-width-responsive="false">

Apart from speed and ease of use with exceptional battery life, one of the best things about owning a Chromebook is knowing you can now install and run your favourite Android apps (though not all) on your PC. This development is highly welcomed as you can easily synchronise app data across devices.

Step 1: Check if your Chromebook is running Android apps. Check, by tapping or clicking on the status area or the “Settings” cog. Next, you click “About Chrome OS” at the top of your screen to display the information.

Step 2: Check for updates. To do this, in the “About” window, tap or click the “Check for and apply updates” button. Download the updates if available and restart the device.

Step 3: Once your Chromebook is updated, go to the status area and click the “Settings” cog, navigate to the “Google Play Store” section, and check “Enable Google Play Store on your Chromebook.” Agree to Google’s terms of service to continue.

Step 4: The Google Play Store app will open, and you’ll accept additional terms and conditions to proceed. Once you’ve done this, you can proceed to step 5.

Step 5: To install an Android app, locate it in the Play Store, click on its entry, and click the “Install” button.

Step 6: The app should start installing and may pause to ask about any required authorisations. Accept them if requested. Installed apps will show in your Chrome OS apps tray. Click on the app’s icon to run it.

You can manage the Android apps the same way you handle the Chrome OS Apps as both apps are in the same window.
