Following the report about Chromebooks getting the ability to run Android apps, Google has now shared a list of compatible Chromebooks.

The search giant has apparently made changes to the Chrome OS to enable Chromebooks to run Android apps from Google Play store. This capability will reportedly hit the eligible Chromebooks later this year.

Google’s Chrome webpage says, “Chromebooks have always been about making computing more accessible for everyone, and by bringing together the best of Android and Chrome OS, we are taking a big leap forward.”

Some of the prominent Chromebooks from the compatible devices list are the Acer Chromebook 14, Thinkpad 13 Chromebook and Google's Chromebook Pixel, among others.

The compatibility list of Chromebooks, Chromeboxes and Chromebases has the following companies listed: Acer, Asus, Google, Dell, Samsung, HP, Lenovo, AOpen, Bobicus, CDI, CTL, Exdis, Haier, HexaHiSense, Lava, Medion, M&A, NComputing, Nexian, PCMerge, Poin2, Sector 5, Senkatel, Toshiba, True IDC and Viglen.

As it turns out, the first set of Chromebooks to run Android apps in June/July timeframe would be the Acer Chromebook R11 / C738T, Asus Chromebook Flip and Google's Chromebook Pixel (2015). Out of the three, Android apps are reportedly available on the M53 dev channel for Asus Chromebook Flip right now. The other two devices will be able to access very soon.
