Looks like Chrome users will get access to plethora of apps on the Google Play Store. This hidden feature was noticed by a Reddit user who claimed that a checkbox appeared to “Enable android apps” on the Chromebook, disappearing soon after.
This ‘version 51’ of the Chrome OS is still under development but users who have already tried it say it shows a tutorial before it automatically vanishes. We wouldn’t be surprised if Google is keeping this special feature for an announcement at the upcoming I/O conference.
Despite barriers in the past between Android and Chrome OS, the latter will benefit from its sibling as Google Play lists more apps, games, is recognised in more countries and also has better support.
