Google has finally released a stable channel update to Chrome OS that adds Google Play Store to the 2015 Pixel Chromebook.
If you are a Pixel 2 owner, go ahead and update your Chromebook, restart it and look for the Play Store icon in your app launcher. If you are already on Beta or Dev channel, well, you already have Play Store and Android apps on your device, so continue enjoying them!
We are yet to see an official blog post from Google announcing this release, but if you are a Pixel owner, the version that you are looking for is 53.0.2785.129.
Google started testing Play Store for Chrome OS on three devices, Asus Chromebook Flip, Acer Chromebook R11 / C738T and the Pixel 2. Only two of those devices got the Play Store in the Stable channel in the first round, and Pixel 2 was left behind. Today’s update brings Pixel 2 back to the special group.
So, Pixel 2 owners, enjoy your “new” Chromebooks!
