How this works in practice we have not been seen much yet, but the company has posted a video on YouTube of a developer presentation showing how the Play Store and Android applications running on Chromebooks.

First impressions are that it works seamlessly and Google wants to make it as easy as possible to share files between apps, while there is support for offline profile.

One thing that it might be interesting to see is how apps or games that mainly relies on touch, will work on PCs that do not have a touchscreen. We also know how demanding applications will run on the most poorly specified machines.

The rollout of Android support is expected to start this month and you have one of these Chromebooks can be quick to download and use Android apps.
