Google is taking a big step in offering Android features on its Chrome OS by allowing a few Android apps to run on Chromebooks for the first time.

Google announced that four Android apps are the first to run on Chrome OS and can be downloaded from the Chrome Store. They include the note taking app Evernote, Twitter's video clip app Vine, the children's reading skills improvement app Sight Words and the language learning app Duolingo.

Google's blog announcement added, "These first apps are the result of a project called the App Runtime for Chrome (Beta), which we announced earlier this summer at Google I/O. 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."

What do you think of this plan to allow Android apps to run on Chrome OS?
