If you’ve been using Chrome OS, then you already know that it has been supporting Android applications for a while. This was surely a great addition to the operating system and most of the users have been enjoying it.

It is good to know that the hardware that comes on Chromebooks is able to handle Android applications, but it seems that the software is giving headaches to the developers, because it is lagging behind a little. However, it seems that this will soon change and below we will give you more information about it.



Until now, the Android applications that run on Chrome OS have had to be bansed on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which means that they had to follow some specific guidelines as to what they can or cannot do. It is good to know that there is a big difference between applications based on Marshmallow and applications that are based on Android 7.0 Nougat.

First of all, the difference between Marshmallow and Nougat OS is that the latter brings the ability to resize applications, as well as support for multiple windows. In other words, these applications can act like they would on a computer allowing you to have a few windowed applications opened at once, just like you are able to do on Windows or Mac OS.

An update that comes with the new feature is currently rolling out to the experimental Canary channel of Chrome OS. If you own a Chrome OS device, then you should get the update sometime soon. If rumors prove to be right, this update will be released to consumers sometime before the end of January 2017.
