Bringing Chrome OS and Android together is not something new, as this move by Google has been in the rumor mill for a while now. Although they are not merging the two operating systems yet, it is good to see that Chromebooks finally get the Google Play Store and the ability to run Android apps on these portables, as well as on other devices that run Chrome OS.
According to a session description on the Google I/O 2016 website, the Google Play Store is coming to Chrome OS - "Today we announced that we’re adding the best mobile app experiences in the world, Android apps and the Google Play store, to the best browser in the world, Chrome! Come to this session and test your Android apps for Chrome OS."
To make the session even more interesting, the first 50 developers to attend will get a free Chromebook. Since the Google I/O annual developer conference unfolds as I write this, we should hear more about Android apps on Chrome OS pretty soon.
