Plenty of fascinating revelations have come out of Google I/O up to now, with the general message being Google’s unified, cross-platform software program setup by way of Android and Chrome. That’s going to increase to apps too, based on senior vice chairman Sundar Pichai.

Talking in the course of the Google I/O keynote, Pichai stated the initiative was “in early days”, however that the corporate intends to introuce native Android app help to the Chrome OS – it was demonstrated reside on-stage with Android variations of Evernote, Flipboard, and Vine.

Google has tailor-made these demo apps to run in a few modes, it’s successfully a type of digital emulation because the app runs both as a telephone-measurement window or a pill-measurement one on the OS desktop.

What stays to be seen is how Google will deal with the touchscreen conundrum – Android apps are designed for contact, whereas Chromebooks have non-contact dispays, on the entire, although Chromebook Pixel does help Chrome OS on contact units. Whereas Google has stated exactly squat about what to anticipate within the type of future Chromebook units, it appears fairly doubtless that Google goes extra in the direction of contact and can take OEMS with it – anticipate to see extra touchscreen Chromebooks going into 2015.
