It’s now seemingly within reach to run Android apps on nearly any platform on which Chrome will run. All you need is a functioning flavor of ARC (App Runtime for Chrome).
I’ve tested it on ChromeOS, and it works. The fastest way to get set up is to download “twerk” at the link above, then grab any app that says “Also for Android” (which will automagically grab ARC for you). After that, grab your favorite APK from play store and convert it with twerk. Tons of apps work. A few don’t, but it nonetheless makes your Chromebook way more functional. Not to mention is a cool way to dick around with Android apps on any other platform.
Not sure why I’m so amused by this, but I most certainly am.
