Duolingo, Sight words, Evernote and Vine run natively on Chrome OS -more apps to be ported by Google soon

Google announces that Duolingo, Sight words, Evernote and Vine run natively on Chrome OS now. It seems that Chromebooks and Android devices are more connected than ever as Android apps are starting to be natively compatible with Chrome OS.

It seems that Google is working with certain app developers at the moment to add more favorite apps to the bunch, meaning that soon, Chromebooks will have many more native Android apps users can choose from. The apps are easy to download from the Chrome Web Store (for devices with Chrome 37 and above) and afterwards they will show up in the task bar. They can run in phone or tablet layout, which means they keep the Android experience alive.

Google already has open-sourced parts of the Runtime App for Chrome (ARC) and encourages users to suggest their favorite apps in order for the most popular to be ported sooner.
