Google’s announcement this summer that Android apps would be making their way to Chrome OS is finally coming to fruition.
The first batch of Android apps for Chrome OS have been released today and includes Duolingo, Evernote, Sight Words and Vine. They all work just like regular Chrome apps, with 100% functionality and no missing features from their Android counterparts.
As for why these apps are the first available, Google is apparently working with developers at first to bring the best content over in the best way possible. In Google’s own words, “over the coming months, we’ll be working with a select group of Android developers to add more of your favorite apps so you’ll have a more seamless experience across your Android phone and Chromebook.”
If you have an app you’d love to see ported, Google has created a Docs form that you can fill out to file a request.
