Recent days, Google makes an innovation for Chrome OS. Usually, it has been built-up with Chromebook that is some running well on Chrome OS such as Duolingo, Evernote, Vine and Sight Words. It means that Chrome OS users do not have to worry anymore about the availability of the applications to support their daily needs.
Not very long time ago, a developer named Vlad Filippov succeeded running android applications on Chrome OS and browser using ARChon, a tool he made himself. This tool is such a runtime on Chrome. It is not like BlueStacks emulator. Instead it is made to run applications.
For this time, it is not only limited for those 4 applications released by Google. You can even try yourself. You can watch the video demo to find it out more. It is suggested to use touchscreen laptop so it is like smartphone. Before using the device, make sure it is installed the latest version of Chrome or Canary version.
For this time, ARChon has not supported all android applications to run well with this trick yet. Some popular applications such as WhatsApp and SoundCloud are still experiencing problems. The benefit from all of these is that you have another option besides emulator like BlueStacks and Andy to run the applications on computer. In the right time, you will find that BBM, WhatsApp, Instagram, aand other well-known applications can run well on your computer.
