Since their launch, Chromebooks have offered a sleek, stylish notebook for media consumption and light word processing on a budget.

Google’s own Chromebook Pixel, the Asus Chromebook Flip and Acer’s Chromebook R11 have all had access to the Play Store for awhile now. Today though, Google announced that every model Chromebook from 2017 and after will all support this function, opening up a world of possibilities for Chromebook owners and prospective buyers alike.

Kan Liu, Google’s senior director of product management,  revealed that more “larger-screen, productivity-focused, Android-type devices” would be announced by the Mobile World Congress show in February, so it’s likely that more high-end, beefier notebooks will arrive soon.

As it stands now, Chromebooks are fairly powerful for the price at which they’re offered, but are fairly restricted as to what they can do. Given that Chrome OS is still basically in it’s infancy, we’re excited to see what approach Google will take.

I’ve personally loved the sleek, minimalist, ultrabook-esque design of the majority of all of these notebooks. Maybe now, or a few months into the future, once we know more, wouldn’t be a bad time to invest.
