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.

Apparently, some /r/ChromeOS users have seen an option pop up when they first loaded the Settings on their Chromebooks. While the window quickly disappears from sight, its message is obvious:

DID YOU KNOW? Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

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?
