Samsung went with Intel Celeron N4000 processors across the line, and both Chromebook 4s charge via USB-C: the 11.6-inch model has a single USB-C port, while the 15.6-inch model has two, one on each side. Both also include a 30W USB-C power adapter in the box and a single USB Type-A port and headphone / microphone-in jack.

  • Before you can do anything, you’ll get the usual terms of service document that you must scroll through and approve. Read it if you like, then approve it.

That’s it! Now all you have to do is look for the familiar Play Store logo in your Launcher, either by clicking on the Launcher icon in the lower-left corner of the screen or using the Launcher button on your keyboard just above the left Shift key. That will take you to the Play Store where you can search for and install your favorite Android apps on your Chromebook.

Android apps you’ve installed will also appear on the Launcher, just like any other Chrome OS app. For example, when I installed the Spotify Android app on a PixelBook, the Spotify icon appeared in the Launcher alongside all the previous apps.

Samsung’s Chromebook 4 line delivers a brand new design and full USB-C support

  Samsung’s Chromebook 4 line delivers a brand new design and full USB-C support Samsung on Monday unveiled two new Chromebook models, both affordable offerings that could satisfy the computing needs of users who don’t require more sophisticated operating systems. If Chrome OS is good enough for your needs — coupled with all the Android apps you could ask for — then you should check out the Chromebook 4 and Chromebook 4+, which are out just in time for the busy holiday season. Starting at $229.99 and $299.99, the Chromebook 4 and Chromebook 4+ have the exact same set of specs: Intel Celeron N4000 processor, Intel UDH Graphics 600, 4GB or 6GB of LPDDR4 memory, 64GB built-in eMMC flash memory, 720p HD camera, Wi-Fi 5 support, Bluetooth, dual stereo speake

Note: The first time you go to the Google Play Store, you may get a pop-up that asks you to “Complete account setup” by adding a payment option. Don’t panic. If you don’t want to add any kind of payment info, you don’t have to. Just hit “Skip.”

You can even select many of the same options for the Android apps that you would if they were on your phone. Click on “Manage Android preferences” (which is just above the “Google Play Store” link you were at before) to choose whether you want notifications, if Do Not Disturb should be activated, etc.

One warning: Android apps that have been optimized for use on a Chromebook — which means many of the most popular apps — will look and act like normal Chromebook apps. However, apps that have not been optimized will basically appear in a phone screen format, so they won’t be quite as usable — although they should, with possibly a few exceptions, still work.
