Google hasn’t said anything as to why some Chromebooks won’t be getting support, but a report from PC World speculates that probably it may have to do with how Android app support is implemented and not a hardware limitation. It also suggests that supported Chromebooks may be running on a newer version of Chrome Operating System’s core code, which might be a lot of work to update other Chromebook’s to. According to Google, if your Chromebook isn’t on this list, it will continue to get new features and improvements.


A Chromebook is a laptop running Chrome OS as its operating system. The devices are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet, with most applications and data residing in “the cloud”. The first Chromebooks for sale, by Acer Inc. and Samsung, began shipping on June 15, 2011. In addition to laptop models, a desktop version, called a Chromebox, was introduced in May 2012. The Chrome OS is an operating system designed by Google and based upon the Linux kernel.


Android, Inc. was founded in Palo Alto, California in October 2003 by Andy Rubin, Rich Miner, Nick Sears and Chris White. In July 2005, Google acquired Android Inc. for at least $50 million. The Android mobile operating system is currently developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
