Chromebook users rejoice! Chrome OS might soon get access to Android apps on their devices, vastly increasing Chromebook’s functionality.

Right now, Chrome OS only supports a handful of Android apps, but this upgrade might unleash Chromebooks into the world, making them infinitely more useful.

As you might expect, no official word has been uttered by Google on this matter, but if they are secretly building this functionality they might want to keep this under wraps until the feature is ready to roll out on all devices.

My guess is that we’re going to find out more at the upcoming Google I/O. If Chromebooks will indeed support Android apps, will this increase the chances of you getting one?
