Google Play Developer

Hello Google Play Developer,
At Google I/O 2016, we announced that Google Play would be launching on Chromebooks. As an Android developer, your apps will soon be compatible with Chromebooks. Here’s how you can improve the Chromebook experience for your Android apps:
• Begin by reviewing the I/O session – “Bring your Android App to Chromebooks”
• Read this Android Developers Help Center article to learn how to optimize your Android apps for Chromebooks.
• Update the AndroidManifest.xml and set touchscreen as not required if you want to reach customers on non-touchscreen Chromebooks.
• Learn how to manage your app’s compatible devices and more about Chrome OS Device Support for Apps.

No action is required, but we recommend the steps above to best position your app for the millions of potential customers using Chromebooks.
