Google survey asks what Android apps you’d like to see on Chrome OS

by: Andrew GrushJune 27, 2014


During the Google I/O keynote, it was revealed that Chrome OS will soon have the ability to run select Android apps. During the keynote Google showed off Evernote, Vine and Flipboard but this is only the beginning. While the entire Google Play store isn’t likely to show up on Chrome OS anytime soon, Google is interested in bringing more apps to Chrome OS in the future. Even better, they want our input as to which apps they should target.

Right now Google has a survey page up that allows you to enter the Google Play app URL. The purpose is to better gauge what apps Chrome OS users are most interested in. Google also seems to be gauging developer interest as well, as it asks you if you are the developer of the app you suggested. If so, the survey asks for your developer email address.

Anyhow, if you’re at all interested in helping shape the future of Android apps on Chrome, you’ll want to head over to Google’s survey page and submit the app you’d most like to see on Chrome OS.

    How about instead of Vine you give us Wine

      wine support in chrome OS would be killer. ARM
      its more likely we get android apps in windows using chrome than that

      • MasterMuffin

        It’s more likely that we get iPhone with Android, but one can dream :)

      • Crutchcorn

        Yeah but let’s look at QEMU. We can use QEMU to emulate windows 32bit (on a 32bit ARM) on android. Why not this?

    • Crutchcorn

      I would leave everything for that and the pricepoint

      If only Google could release a linux distro based on Debian or Ubuntu, or make one from scratch and make it compatible with Wine and .deb apps.

      • MasterMuffin

        What would make it better than Debian or Ubuntu? What would be the reason to install it other than it’s made by Google?

        • KillEmAllx

          Well, it’s all about the echosystem and expirience. I would love an OS that can compete against Windows, Mac and Ubuntu/linux distros made by Google, just for the same reason iphone users prefer Mac. Now, Google have better possibilities of doing that than Canonical or minor community-based distros, because of money, and Android’s success among normal users.

    Maybe if we all submit “everything”, it will encourage Google to merge Android and Chrome so that all apps will be fully functional across both platforms

    • xoj_21

      do it

  • Tjaldid

    ALL OF THEM!!!

    Its really easy for google to just make android apps run in a Virtual Machine on chrome OS and make it seem as if they are running natively

  • takpro

    WOW! Why isn’t everyone jumping up and down about “Net Neutrality?” Just like they did when T-mobile announced some music services wouldn’t be charged against their data caps. Google just announced something new, but not every app in the Play Store is being treated equally. Where is the outrage? Wait until the whinos on The Verge figure this out! ;(s

    I’d much prefer to see a push for certain windows apps being ported to android

  • I put in Flappy Bird… >:)
