We've seen increasingly more Chromebook computers receiving support for Android apps recently, and as with every other week, another batch of models will be getting the official roll out adding support for the Play Store in the stable channel.

According to the Chromium wiki, here are the seven more models to receive the feature:

  • Acer Chromebook 15 (CB5-571 / C910)
  • CTL J5 Convertible Chromebook
  • eduGear CMT Chromebook
  • Haier Chromebook 11 C
  • PCMerge Chromebook PCM-116T-432B
  • Prowise Chromebook Proline
  • Viglen Chromebook 360

All of these Chromebooks already had access to the Play Store in the beta channel prior to this roll out, but the Android apps support is now officially available in the stable channel.

Google has been improving the use of Android apps on Chrome OS a lot these past few months, adding split-screen support, letting Android apps run in the background and more improved support.

Along with the addition of the Play Store on their Chromebook 15, Acer is also releasing two new Chromebooks, the Chromebook Spin 11 and Chromebook 11 C732, along with the Chromebox CXI3. These three new devices were released this month.

Google is certainly making Chromebooks more valuable with the addition of the Play Store on their OS. Although Chromebooks were originally announced to be cloud-based, Android apps only increase the number of features previously available for Chrome OS users, and are proof that not everything has to be cloud-based. That's gotta be a harsh realization for Google.

We will keep you updated on which Chrome devices get access to the general roll out on the stable channel. In the meantime, if your Chromebook still hasn't received the update, you can check out Google's help guide on how to switch between stable, beta and dev channel.
