On an Android phone, you will tap the Build Number under Settings seven times, to enable Developer Options. The process is similar on a Chromebook too. You can click the build number instead of touching it if that matters!

This method will help you locate ANY Android app on your Chromebook. Open the Chrome OS Settings app and go to the Google Play Store section.

Next, click Google Play Store to go to Play Store specific settings.

Next, click Manage Android preferences.
