Android Apps come to Chromebooks as lines blur even more between the two operating systems
Google has confirmed that it will soon allow Chromebook users run Android apps on the desktop operating system, blurring the lines of what Chrome OS and Android is.
Google demoed Evernote, Vine, and Flipboard Android apps working on a Chromebook Pixel at its annual developer conference in San Francisco.
In the demo by Sundar Pichai, we saw how changes on the Chromebook version of Evernote automatically changed on the app on the phone.
Although not going as far as confirming when we could see Android apps on Chrome OS, Google said that it was working on making it happen.
The company has also confirmed that like Apple's latest desktop OS, OS X Yosemite, Chromebook users will also be able to get notifications from their phone on their Chromebook. In an example given in the keynote, the company said that users getting a notification about a low battery would be able to see that on the device.
