How to install Android apps on a Chromebook

How do I install an app from the Google Play Store?

BPS has allowed a select number of Android apps to be installed from the Google Play Store App. If you are interested in installing a Google Play Store Android app and don't find it already available in the Play Store App, reach out to the BPS Service Desk with your request and we will put in a ticket to evaluate if that app can be approved.

If the app is allowed, you can install it from the Google Play Store App by clicking on the Install button on any Chromebook at your school.

Notice: Android apps take up a significant amount of space on a Chromebook. It is advised to use a web-based application where possible in place of an Android application.
