8 Best Chromebook Google Apps for Gaming

Google has done a lot of great things over the years, pushed forward plenty of cool products, apps and gear, including a laptop, but which are the 8 best Chromebook Google apps for gaming?

Everyone knows that Chromebooks are excellent laptops as long as you don’t actually hope you’re going to do any sort of hardcore gaming on it. The device comes with an Intel Celeron processor (the type differs depending on which one you’ll pick), 2 or 4 GB RAM, and a 16 GB drive. And there lies the issue, since most games require a tad more space to run and install, and we’re talking about proper games, not small ones you’ll download off the Internet. Plus, the device runs Chrome OS, which pretty much annuls any hopes to play around too much since the software isn’t among those supported by game developers.
