Here is the official list of Chromebooks that will be able to run Android apps. Is yours one on the list?
Despite being really popular among the students in the US, Chromebook still lacks on great game selection. There are not many awesome games available right now on Chrome Web Store, especially compared to Play Store. The good news is, recently Google just unveiled the official list of Chromebooks that will be getting the support to run Android apps in the future.

This official list actually came at no surprise because Google has already promised us that all upcoming Chromebooks would be getting the support to run Android apps. This means if your Chromebook is one on the list, your Chrome-OS laptop will have the chance to play Android games in the near future.

Samsung Chromebook Plus
Actually, we've already seen how Samsung Chromebook Pro was capable to play one of the hottest Android titles - Asphalt 8: Airborne, although it didn't run so smoothly on this device.

On this official list, there are 3 classifications of Android support that will arrive on Chromebooks. The first one is "Planned", the second one is "Beta Channel" and the last one is "Stable Channel". So basically, these Chromebooks will be required to go through these 3 major phases in order to be eligible to get the Android support in the near future.

In the "Stable Channel", there are some Chromebooks mentioned here on the list. They are ASUS Chromebook Flip C100P, Acer Chromebook R11, and Chromebook Pixel from Google (2015). Unfortunately, at this time, 83 Chromebooks on this list are still marked as "Planned", which means they are still long way to go to the last important phase - "Stable Channel".

In the "Beta Channel", meanwhile, there are 2 Chromebooks mentioned here - Asus Chromebook Flip C302 and Acer Chromebook R13. So if you are the owner of one of these laptops, there is a possibility that your Chromebook will finally get the Android support in the future.

But of course, you might want to wait for little while before your laptop finally gets the stable version of Android support (fingers' crossed for that!). Don't get your hopes up though because being mentioned in the "Beta Channel" doesn't straightly mean that your Chromebook will be guaranteed to get the final stable version.

Anyway, as we mentioned above, we've already seen Samsung's latest Chromebook Pro capable to play Asphalt 8: Airborne. However, it didn't run so smoothly on this device according to what we saw on YouTube videos (theVerge). This is probably why Samsung Chromebook Pro is still marked as "Planned" on this list.

Samsung Chromebook Plus
Weirdly enough, its sibling - Samsung Chromebook Plus - is already included in the "Stable Channel". which means, this Samsung's convertible laptop is one step closer of getting the more stable support to run Android apps in the near future.
