With all the fuss about Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the tech world seems to have forgotten about anything else. The controversial new iPhones are taking all the attention leaving other important tech news in the shadows. That is the case with Google’s new Android Apps for Chromebook announced in June which are finally out. Google launched a new set of cool apps for their Chromebook laptop. The new Android apps for Chromebook are Evernote, Duolingo and some children’s apps called Twitter’s Vine and Sight Words.
Google officials Josh Woodward and Ken Mixter wrote in a blog post that, “Chromebooks were designed to keep up with you on the go — they’re thin and light, have long battery lives, resume instantly, and are easy to use. Today, we’re making Chromebooks even more mobile.”
The new Android Apps for Chromebook look really good and seem very practical. For example, Duolingo is a free language app for those who want to learn English, Spanish, French, Italian, German or Portuguese. Another new app is called Evernote and it was designed to help organize the digital world more efficiently. With Evernote you can write, collect or find notes with a large keyboard.
Another new Android app for Chromebook is Sight Words. This is an educational game which wants to teach children recognize words and improve their reading skills and fluency. With the Vine app you can create short videos right from your laptop.
More New Android Apps for Chromebook coming soon
Google said that they will be working with Android developers in the coming months for more Chromebook apps. They didn’t release any details about the upcoming apps. The cool thing is that Google has set up a form where user can request the apps they would like to see on their Chromebook.
“We won’t be able to support every Android app from day one, but your feedback will help us focus on the Android apps that you’d use most on Chrome OS,” says Google.
