What is the Google Play Store on your Chromebook?

The Google Play Store offers a litany of features, bolstering your Chromebook’s productivity. Dive in with us here to learn more. This will help make your Chromebook the best Chromebook.

The Google Play Store, formerly known as the  Android Market, is a digital distribution service operated and developed by Google. It serves as the official app store for the Android operating system, allowing users to browse and download applications developed with the Android software development kit and published through Google. Over the last few years has made its way to Chrome OS, ensuring that your Chrome devices become even more useful than before.

The Google Play Store isn’t something you need to enable on your Chromebook, it’s just there. If you own a supported Chromebook, it will already be available to you on the device. If you want to see a list of older devices that support the store, check this link. However, if you’ve purchased a Chromebook after 2017, this is included immediately.

How you access it:
At the bottom of your Chromebook window, you’ll see this icon.

If you don’t see it here, you can also view it by clicking on your list of applications and scrolling until you find the icon.

Clicking it will open up the store—at the top, you can enter your search. This will search through applications, movies, music, books, games, and more. You can now download all kinds of great applications!

There you have it folks—that’s how you access the Google Play store on your chrome devices! If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to our support team at support@promevo.com.
