Evernote, Vine, and Flipboard were demonstrated on stage, and today Google has announced the first batch of Android apps that will run on Chrome right now. Among them are Duolingo, Evernote, Sight Words, and Vine. Flipboard is still notably absent. For now, Google is working "with a select group of Android developers to add more of your favorite apps," meaning there won't exactly be a flood of native Android experiences coming to Chrome OS users. Still, the feature is already pretty awesome. Apps are downloaded from the Chrome Web Store (for devices running Chrome 37 or above) and show up in the task bar just like regular Chrome apps.

There are plenty of good answers to that question. Android gives you direct access to more than two billion monthly users. It’s the number one mobile operating system and stands well above iOS in terms of sheer numbers. Android doesn’t just run on phones, but also on tablets, televisions, and smartwatches. Now Android apps can even run on Chrome OS! Sure, iOS users traditionally spend more on their apps, but even that gap is starting to close, as Android users become more willing to shell out for their software.Android is also relatively easy to develop for.
