We're hearing reports that the Pixel 2015 and Acer Chromebook R11 Chromebooks have a Dev channel update that brings support for Android apps and the Google Play Store. The two devices will join the ASUS Chromebook Flip as part of the testing platform to get the stable channel of Chrome OS ready for the Play Store. When the program comes out of beta, many current and future Chromebooks will be able to install and run your favorite Android apps from Google Play with no trickery or difficulties.
To get Google Play up and running on your Pixel or Chromebook R11, make sure you're on the latest Dev channel build and look for "Play store" in your settings. See here for full details.
