Google’s Chromebook platform has made some serious strides lately,

gaining enough momentum in the education and business markets to spur

Microsoft to respond with its Windows 10 S initiative.


														
							

Getting Android app support on the Chromebooks people already own has been a challenge, however, even as Google indicated that all 2017 and later Chromebooks would get Android support. The list of Chromebooks that can officially run Android apps has been a bit limited, but that’s changing, as Android Police reports.

Google on Thursday updated its list of Chromebooks that now have official support, and 16 new machines have been added. They include:

  • Acer Chromebook 11 N7 (C731, C731T)
  • Acer Chromebook 15 (CB3-532)
  • Asus Chromebook C202SA
  • ASUS Chromebook C300SA/C301SA
  • CTL NL61 Chromebook
  • Dell Chromebook 11 (3180)
  • Dell Chromebook 11 Convertible (3189)
  • Dell Chromebook 13 (3380)
  • HP Chromebook 11 G5 EE
  • HP Chromebook 13 G1
  • Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook
  • Lenovo N23 Yoga Chromebook
  • Lenovo N22 Chromebook
  • Lenovo N23 Chromebook
  • Samsung Chromebook 3
  • Mercer Chromebook NL6D

Some Chromebooks are supported in the Beta Channel, meaning that you’ll need to change your system’s channel in order to get Android apps installed. You can follow our guide here on how to install Android apps on your Chromebook.
