Acer Chromebook R13 now supports Android apps (beta channel)

Google has already added support for Google Play Store and Android apps for Google Chromebook Pixel, Acer Chromebook R11 and Asus Chromebook Flip. The latest Chromebook to join the list is Acer's Chromebook R13. It is getting full support for Google PlayStore and Android apps in the Chrome OS beta channel via Chrome OS v55.

To get Play Store and Android app support you'll have to be on the beta channel. To enable this, go to Chrome settings menu, click on  "About Chrome OS" and then switch to beta channel option.

The support on the stable channel is expected to hit the Chromebook R13 in December.
