Google has promised that it will bring the official Android store to the Chrome OS. It seems that the company has kept its word and it has finally brought the Google Play Store to the Chrome OS stable version.
In other words, starting from now on, you will be able to download and install Android games, media content directly from the Google Play Store. If you are an owner of a Chromebook, you should definitely update your device to the latest Chrome OS version and install the Google Play Store.
Keep in mind that this is a gradual rollout, even if it is being released for the STABLE version of the Chrome OS. According to reports, the Google Play Store BETA version is currently limited for devices such as Acer R11 and Asus Flip and can be enabled by heading to the Settings page.
According to a spokesperson, the Google team is currently working hard to make sure that the Google Play Store works without any issues before making it the available by default on these Chromebooks.
In other words, the Google Play Store is still disabled by default on Chromebook, but once you’ve updated your device to version 53.0.2785.129, you will be able to enable the Google Play Store from your Chrome settings. Since the Google Play Store is still in BETA phase for Chromebook, you should know that you might find errors or bugs which you should report to the developers so that they can fix them before they release the STABLE version of the official Android store for Chromebook.
It seems that app and game stability has improved since the latest Google Play Store version has been released for Chrome OS, but the developers still have a good amount of work to do before all apps and games that you can install via the official Android store will run without any problems.
