Google confirmed last year that all Chromebooks shipped in 2017 and beyond will get full support for the Play Store, enabling users to access Android apps on their Chrome OS-powered devices. The company has gradually been rolling out Play Store support for a wide variety of Chromebooks. The Play Store has now landed on 10 additional Chromebooks from several different manufacturers.


Many Chromebooks that are now being shipped come with Play Store out of the box. This makes it much easier for users to get in the swing of things and start using Android apps on their Chromebooks from the get go.

Google has been working hard to backport the Play Store to older Chromebooks. The process is taking time but we’re gradually seeing more models being added to the list of supported devices. Some have received the Play Store on the stable channel while others have received it on the beta.

The ten new Chromebooks that have received Play Store support include the Acer Chromebook 11 and 15, Toshiba Chromebook 2 (2015), Dell Chromebook 13, and the Haier Chromebook 11 C. The full list of supported Chromebooks is available on the Chromium website. It also lists the 35 Chromebooks that are “planned” to receive support for the Play Store.
