Google has also announced that in addition to Android app support on Chromebooks, the company will also be bringing the Google Play Store over as well. The Play Store will begin rolling out in the developer channel for the ASUS Chromebook Flip, the Acer Chromebook R 11 and the Chromebook Pixel (2015) with M53. Over time, Google will add support for other models as well.

Play Store on Chromebooks

From Google's official announcement:

So, we're bringing Google Play (the most popular app store in the world) to Chromebooks. This means you'll be able to download and use Android apps, so you can make a Skype call, work with Office files and be productive offline -- or take a break with games like Minecraft, Hearthstone or Clash of Clans. The same apps that run on phones and tablets can now run on Chromebooks without compromising their speed, simplicity or security. This is good for users and great for developers - in addition to phones and tablets, they will be able to easily bring their apps to laptops. And all this is built on top of Chrome OS, so users will continue to have everything they love in their Chromebooks.

A list of supported Chromebooks can be found here, and Google will continue to share additional details about this over the course of the next few months.
