How to Check If Your Chromebook Supports Android Apps

Chrome OS now supports Android apps. However, not all Chromebooks support Google Play Store and Android apps. Here is how to find out if your Chromebook supports Android apps.

The first method to check if your Chromebook supports Android apps is to check the Settings app. All Chromebooks with Android apps support should have a section called Google Play Store within Settings.

Look for the Google Play Store section.

Another way to find out if your Chromebook has Android support is to look for the Play Store app. If you have Android apps enabled, you should see the Play Store app in your launcher.
